KEMPSVILLE — Local jazz bandleader Jae Sinnett dropped by Birdland Music in Providence Square this past month to sign copies of his latest release, Zero to 60, his 14th recording as a leader. 

The drummer and composer talked about the difference in this recording when he wasn’t busy signing recordings and snapping a few photos with friends and fans.

“Maturity, for one,” Sinnett said. “That longevity brings so much more depth to your feel. … This record comes down to recording and playing a lot of the things I was missing in jazz.”

Sinnett is joined by Ralph Bowen on saxophone, Allen Farnham on piano and Hans Glawischnig on bass on the new recording.

Sinnett said he focused on memorable melodies on the project, as well as music that will let listeners feel it. Aside from the song “Never Let Me Go,” there are nine Sinnett originals on the new record.

The recording promises jazz, straight up, and there’s information on it at jaesinnett.com.

Though the release is scheduled for February, Zero to 60 is available now as a download or on disk through CD Baby, an online independent music store.

Sinnett is also known as an educator, as well as for his love of cooking.

He is also a local radio host on Sinnett in Session, a jazz show, and The R&B Chronicles for WHRV-FM 89.5.
