Hear Jeff Ballard’s new release “The Man’s Gone”

The inventive track is off his upcoming album, ‘Fairgrounds.’

Jeff Ballard has released “The Man’s Gone” from his upcoming album Fairgrounds.

The drummer, who is co-leader of the group Fly and one-third of the Brad Mehldau Trio, last released an album as bandleader in 2014. Speaking on his upcoming release, Ballard had this to say: “Totally freedom was the only restriction. Structures came from content, or sometimes the structure was already there if we happen to play a specific song but it would be a very new version each time.”

Fairgrounds is due out January 25. Listen to “The Man’s Gone” below:
