11x GRAMMY-award-winning trumpeter & arranger, Philip Lassiter, releases a live cut of a fan favorite “Bump the Man” featuring rising vocalist, Durand Bernarr and a 15-piece ensemble. Bernarr is hot off the heels of an NPR Tiny Desk Performance and was named as one of 2019’s “Artists to Know” by Billboard. His loud and proud stage presence coupled with Lassiter’s composition and arrangement abilities have landed him gigs that include serving as Prince and New Power Generation’s horn arranger & section leader as well as credits working with Kirk Franklin, Ariana Grande, Timbaland, Roberta Flack, and more.

Originally appearing on the 2018 Party Crashers album by Lassiter’s “jazz trumpeter turned singer-songwriter” project, Philthy Funk, “Bump the Man” is laced with a “fight the power” message that points to hope and a positive mindset. It features blazing horns and soulful, virtuosic vocals from Bernarr as well as an unexpected Latin twist coming out metamorphic pre-chorus that nod to the Beatles’ psychedelic era. Dutch percussion legend Martin Verdonk is also featured throughout the track

Lassiter is coming off the heels of a robust European tour that included key plays at FinEst Funk Festival (Tallinn, Estonia) and Vossa Jazz Festival (Vossa, Norway), and more. He will continue to tour throughout Europe ahead of a coveted main stage performance with a 23-piece ensemble at North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam.
