New Jing Chi CD in June

Jazz-rock trio Jing Chi-comprised of guitarist Robben Ford, bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta-will release its third album, 3D, on June 29 via Tone Center. 3D is a follow-up to last year’s live recording, Jing Chi- Live at Yoshi’s, and the band’s second studio album after a self-titled, 2002 effort.

Haslip, best known for his membership in the fusion group Yellowjackets, explained that he wanted this album to be heavier than Jing Chi’s previous albums. “When this project started coming together I wanted it to have a harder edge than the first record,” Haslip said. “I wanted to achieve yet another level of progression in the trio as far as composition and playing are concerned. And I think we’ve accomplished that on this record.”
