Michael Leonhart and The Avramina 7 – Seahorse and The Storyteller

Born into a musical family, Michael Leonhart has developed into one of the most imaginative musicians of his time, sought throughout the music and entertainment world as a trumpet player, producer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and singer-songwriter. The roster of artists he has worked with is plentiful, however, here, after recording over 40 albums as Truth and Soul’s in-house trumpet player, he explores his very own concept album intended to take listeners on a psyched-out, funked-up, reverb-drenched trip. The sounds were crafted with the help of the Avramina 7 which features some musicians from the Daptone and Truth & Soul families, including Binky Griptite and Homer Steinweiss of the Dap-Kings, Tommy Brenneck from The Budos Band and Menahan Street Band among others, Luke O’Malley and Nick Movshon from Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, as well as a few others who complete the group.
