Saxophonist Elan Trotman is set to release his sixth solo album entitled Tropicality on February 19, 2013.  Born and raised on the Caribbean island of Barbados, Elan received a full scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA from the Barbadian government.  He quickly made his mark as a three-time winner of the New England Urban Music Award as Best Jazz Male, the 2011 Barbados Music Awards Instrumentalist of the Year, and two nominations for a Boston Music Award.  Elan gets some help on the new album from guitarist Peter White who produced and plays on the project along with Elan.  The set features guests like guitarist U-Nam, keyboardist/producer Jeff Lorber, guitarist/producer Paul Brown, guitarist Nick Colionne, drummers Terri Lyne Carrington, Ricky Lawson and Tony Moore, trumpeter Lin Rountree, bassist Alex Al and percussionist Lenny Castro, in addition to several international musicians.  Elan's next performance will be ringing in the New Year on December 31st in Melbourne, FL.
