Bugles Media is proud to announce the launch of our new record label with the global release of Away With Words, the debut album from Louisville jazz trumpeter Craig Tweddell.

With a set list of ten swingin’ originals from the pen of the leader, Away With Words boasts a smokin’ quintet blowin’ straight-­ahead jazz with a modern twist. Accompanying the leader is a group of top tier musicians who are no strangers to the Louisville music scene.

Playing the Fender Rhodes on the album is Todd Hildreth, best know as the leader of Squeeze-­Bot and for his work with The Java Men. On drums and cymbals is Zack Kennedy, who can be found playing all over Louisville with bands like Cabin, Dr. Vitamin, D’Arkestra, and Egret. Holding down the bass chair is Australian native Luke McIntosh of Appalatin fame. And last but not least is the band’s special guest on tenor saxophone, Dave Kana from the Pittsburgh area.

Beautifully recorded, mixed and mastered by Kevin Ratterman at La La Land Recording Studios, Away With Words also contains an impressively designed 12-­page full color booklet making it the total package.
