MIchael Lington · Moon Goddess

Over 25 years into one of Contemporary Jazz’s most storied and exhilarating careers, #1 Billboard charting saxophonist Michael Lington is as passionately expressive and sonically innovative as ever. The Danish-born artist’s upward trajectory now leads him, on his new single, to vibe with a bona fide “Moon Goddess” – a vibrant and explosive, hard-grooving, and emotionally empowering track showcasing the intuitive dynamic he creates co-writing and co-producing for the first time with famed saxophonist, producer and horn arranger David Mann.

With a loose, freewheeling and soulful energy reminiscent of classic Contemporary jazz albums by CTI Records, the high-intensity track marks Lington’s continued collaboration with legendary guitarist Paul Jackson Jr (whose infectious jangly funk intro and later solo are highlights) and first-ever session with veteran jazz/R&B drummer Michael White. “Moon Goddess,” a nod to Ramsey Lewis’ “Sun Goddess,” will appear on Lington’s upcoming EP, Looking Ahead (set for release in May), his first set of new recordings since 2018 Silver Lining.
