In a display that largely plays out like an iTunes visualization, trumpeter Adam Meckler and his quintet roll out the new video for “One Creaking Birch Tree” off Meckler’s new album, Wander. It’s an album of post-bop swirliness that’s certainly off this era, coasting along on Midwestern charm. It’s a steady ride with mostly lengthy compositions that involve a lot of hunkering down. Check out the video for “One Creaking Birch Tree” after the jump.
Adam Meckler: Trumpet
