Things To Come
(Skiptone Music)

Things To Come, the solo debut of the multi-talented Milton Suggs is a portrait of an artist destined for center stage among jazz vocalists. Suggs possesses a powerful voice that cannot be ignored, complimented by his talents as arranger and composer. Suggs wrote 8 of the album’s 13 tracks, and composed lyrics for tune written by Cedar Walton. His arranging gifts are seen throughout the entire project, including on an inspired take on the civil rights anthem, “We Shall Overcome”. Suggs performances are enhanced by great musicianship from the likes of guitarist Larry Brown, Jr., organist Greg Spero, and trumpeter Marquis Hill among many others. We can only expect more great things from this burgeoning talent.
