Ian Gordon Runaway Single

#NewMusic: Ian Gordon - "Runaway"


#Growns we wanted to put you up on some of that new, new to get your weekend started. Always great when we can present the creativity of one of our own. This production comes as a bi-product of the pen of our longtime music editor Ivan Orr (iorr03) and his collaboration with his childhood friend Pittsburgh, PA trumpeter of renown Ian Gordon.

Check out the description of the motivation behind this tune and make sure if you are diggin the sound spread it around to your closest two or three thousand friends.

Freedom: What does it truly mean? Will we ever know? These are some of the questions that are wrestled with musically on "Runaway" the latest single from Pittsburgh based Trumpeter Ian Gordon. Written and produced in collaboration with iorr03(multi-instrumentalist, writer/producer Ivan Orr) "Runaway" marries the wail of the captive field holler to that of a 21st century Gabrielesque trumpet. "Runaway" has been fashioned to provide the clarion call for the emancipation of all humanity, all spirits past and present from the mental slavery of hatred and bigotry.

#ICYMI: Ian Gordon "1215"

"1215" the new offering from Pittsburgh based trumpeter Ian Gordon resides somewhere near the cross streets of Jazz and Electronic music. Inventive, forward thinking and at times humorous, Ian Gordon's playing and concept embodies the spirit of those innovators who constantly challenge music's status quo to ultimately move the music forward.

This track is aptly described as "A vibrant dinner party where the conversationalists are made of brass... literally. No subject is off limits for the assembled guests and the banter is often as passionate as it is humorous." Make sure you find your space on the wall to see how it all goes down!


Happy Birthday-Miles Davis!!!

One of those great artists that you instantly know his sound within two notes. His music was as unapologetic as his persona. He never looked back, constantly pushed the music forward. This narrative is so succinctly summed up in two words: Miles Davis. Read more
