Brent Birckhead - The Uptown Alchemist
All Ages Birckhead is the full-length debut album that takes its name from Downbeat Award-winning saxophonist, educator, and Baltimore native Brent Birckhead. Birckhead's boundless musical aesthetic and respect for craft combine on an album that cements his trajectory as a rising leader in a storied lineage of maverick woodwind artists. An introduction to the man and his music, the eponymous release is named to reflect Birkhead's desire for his first formal offering to serve as a bold statement of purpose punctuated by his preferred mononym and comprised of deeply personal compositions. With it, he enforces a profound sense of duty to propagate a rich musical legacy and catalyzes a reclamation of personal identity through calculated efforts to redefine his family's given surname. First employed as a utilitarian mechanism to specify colonial ownership of his enslaved ancestors, the word Birckhead becomes a benchmark for dynamism that surpasses the conventions of subjugation and challenges standards of popular music by the advent of the album of the same name.
