Local trumpeter Charlton Singleton will celebrate the release of a debut solo album titled The New Deal this week with a show at the Circular Congregational Church (150 Meeting St.) on Sun. Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to his recent work as a frontman with his own quartet and quintet, Singleton has served as the conductor of the Charleston Jazz Orchestra and as a member of the Jazz Artists of Charleston. He recorded the six-song album in July at Charleston Sound. The set includes four original pieces and renditions of “Body and Soul” and “Stella by Starlight.”

The CD release show this week will take place in the church’s sanctuary. Singleton’s combo will include saxophonist Mark Sterbank, bassist Reggie Sullivan, drummer David Patterson, and pianists Tommy Gill and Richard White — all of whom recorded tracks on The New Deal.

Advance tickets are available for $20 via Etix.com and at the JAC office at 185 St. Philip St. Visit charltonsingleton.com and jazzartistsofcharleston.org for more.
