Josh Williams (BA, jazz studies, trumpet, 2012) and his band Shades of Jade is having a CD release party on October 3 for its new album Shades of Jade: Fingerprinted Memories pt: I.

Williams notes, "With various influences coming from Jazz, Pop, R&B, Blues, Funk, Rock, Classical, and Hip Hop, Shades of Jade: Fingerprinted Memories pt: I tells the personal story of the ethos portrayed in past experiences of the average American. From watching a favorite sports team as a child with their parents, to the daily grind of work on a Wednesday afternoon, the 3 part series Fingerprinted Memories hits its listeners with the nostalgia that defines the culture of the generation of the 21st century."

The release party is Oct. 3, 2014, 7–11 p.m., Broadway Jazz Club, 3601 Broadway Blvd., KCMO.
