Label M Signs Percussionist Leon Parker

Percussion master Leon Parker has signed a recording contract with Joel Dorn’s Label M.

Parker’s Label M debut is slated for a spring release and will be produced by Dorn, who produced Parker’s first two records. Though often deemed a jazz artist, Parker goes far beyond the traditional boundaries of jazz to incorporate a panoply of styles and influences in his work. The as-yet-untitled forthcoming album is Leon Parker’s most ambitious work to date, combining performances captured on the streets of New York City with “live” and studio recordings.
