NEW RELEASE: Jamie Saft Trio – Lotus Blossom

Jamie Saft Trio – Lotus Blossom – Starring Wigmono – Official Video by Adam Goldberg

New single by JST (Veal Records x Team Love) | Video by Adam Goldberg

Jamie Saft Trio explore the shape of Billy Strayhorn’s classic, “Lotus Blossom,” and celebrate the release with a video directed by the multi-faceted artist Adam Goldberg, starring the elusively joyous Wigmono.

Listen in all the places, add to your playlists, tell your friends. A timeless magic conjured by Jamie Saft and friends to honor the memory of the great Jerry Granelli.


“Lotus Blossom” is a magical composition written by the great Billy Strayhorn. Duke Ellington used to close concerts with this unique piece. The version presented here is dedicated to the memory of my friend and mentor Master Musician Jerry Granelli, whose brush work and positive aspect shined through the Peanuts score music as the drummer for the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Jerry spoke often of the Buddhist principle of “Nowness”- of committing to each unique individual moment. It is in Jerry’s memory that I present this sweet version of “Lotus Blossom.” Enjoy.
