Underneath a Brooklyn Moon (2005)
JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Queen Esther
JC Hopkins’ Biggish Band creates a special alchemy of Americana jazz. Underneath a Brooklyn Moon features the vocals of Queen Esther, plus a deeply pedigreed group of supporting players that includes Patience Higgins (Savion Glover) and Claire Daly on saxophone, Warren Smith (Miles Davis, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin), on vibraphone, and Vincent Chancey (Sun Ra Arkestra) on French horn, among others. Songwriters include Madeleine Peyroux and Norah Jones.

“Hopkins writes swinging material tailor made for a vacuum-tube radio, and it’s delivered with a timeless flair by the lead singer, Queen Esther.”
