Ghost Note announces November tour of Europe as new album ‘Swagism’ tops iTunes charts

Powerhouse jazz ensemble, Ghost Note, made a European tour announcement this week as they promote their critically acclaimed album Swagism. November will see both Grammy award-winning artists Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth collaborate with a wide spectrum of other talented sounds including Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas Jr. (bass), Xavier Taplin (keys), Vaughn “V-Keys” Henry (keys), Peter Knudsen (guitar) and Jonathan Mones (alto sax & flute).

Several exciting European destinations for the group on this tour include Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy as this 3-week long exploration will touch down in a total of 18 overseas cities. Their live performances have also been a topic of extraordinary skill with fantastic reviews and a genuine appreciation from their fans. They lighten the stage with a cool, mellow energy that sets a tone for a night full of seemingly endless groovy vibes.

Their evolution to get to this point began in 2015 with the group’s debut record, Fortified, being their first step toward endless potential. Eventually, they would come out with Swagism three years later that would dominate the iTunes jazz charts at the number one position and boasting a stunning 20 featured musicians, including Kamasi Washington, Karl Denson, Nigel Hall, Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer, and many more. Despite the awesome quality of these live performances, they aren’t very frequent so hop on a chance to experience this jazz sensation and check out their tour dates below.
