Sounds Of A&R To Release New Album January 22, 2021
(Published: January 21, 2021)

The New York-based vocal/trumpet duo Sounds of A&R will release their third studio album, "Questions Left Unanswered" tomorrow, January 22. Featuring a mix of lively original compositions and cover arrangements of time-tested classics, this new release presents evocative compositions that speak deeply to the paths of both artists, and the struggles of the moment. Sounds of A&R is made up of a positively darling couple: vocalist April May Webb and trumpeter Randall Haywood. April May's siblings Jacob Webb on bass and Nathan Webb on drums, guitarist Charlie Sigler, pianist James Austin and harpist Riza Printup fill out the rest of the group.

This award-winning duo took home the "Best Jazz Group" title at the 2019 Hot House/Jazzmobile NYC Readers Jazz Awards, and earlier in the year they landed on the Billboard Contemporary Chart for their tune "The Road to Love's Destiny." Their forthcoming new release is a welcome addition to their catalogue.

The paths of vocalist April May and trumpeter Randall Haywood first crossed at Moore's Lounge, a club located in New Jersey. April May took the stage to sit in and the chemistry was instant. Partners ever since, April May and Randall's union produce a sound that is sincere and hopeful in nature. The duo has made their mark on the New York City scene, wowing audiences on stages such as Dizzy's, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Birdland Jazz Club, Minton's Playhouse and the legendary Apollo Theater, often alongside legendary drummer T.S. Monk.

These accolades only emboldened the duo to dig deeper, and S.O.A.R. does just that on Questions Left Unanswered. The album's title track is an illustration of the unknowns of life. April May suggests: "Each day is a mystery that is left to be discovered. The decisions we make shape the trajectory of our lives but there are also things that just simply happen and we must learn to navigate these unknowns, it's a part of our life's journey. The joys and pains of life make life worth living and not having all of the answers is what keeps our minds open to endless possibilities."

"Questions Left Unanswered" will be available on all digital platforms, and on the artist website: https://soundsofaandr.com...
