info 

On Beacons of Light, trumpeter Jonathan Powell pays tribute to some of the great minds of our time, people who touched the hearts and minds. The music draws inspiration from jazz icons past and present, including John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, the Brian Blades Fellowship and Pat Metheny among others. Powell describes his music as “modern jazz,” but the label barely scratches the surface of his range and abilities. Virtuosic compositions such as Malwana showcase Powell and his band’s aptitude for interweaving Eastern and Middle Eastern sounds with counterpoint melodies.
