Following from the Ben Kono Group recording, Don’t Blink, New York flutist, saxophonist, clarinetist Brian Landrus has a new project along similar lines. His new album Red List, also dedicated to the preservation of endangered species, has been recorded and is due for release by late 2021/early 2022. It is described in the video below, which Brian introduces as follows:
