Pan Amsterdam: Plus One

Pan Amsterdam might not be a familiar name, but if you are a fan of jazz then you might well be aware of the man behind the moniker. Leron Thomas has been an active musician since 2000 and has played horns with the likes of Bilal, Erykah Badu and Roy Hargrove. Taking on the guise of Pan Amsterdam, his music takes a shift in direction, primarily with the addition of his own vocal work.
It’s still very much jazz focused and his trumpet is still a main player, but the lyrics take on a spoken word style of delivery, creating a mellow and meandering little number. Plus One is taken from the forthcoming project, The Pocket Watch and I am keen to see what else that will have to offer. Plus One is produced by thatmanmonkz.
