At this moment Eugen Botos and Finally are working on their second CD album (Final Definition) which is coming very soon and there won´t be missed some special guests again like: Brian McKnight – R&B singer, Maysa Leak - smooth jazz singer also known as a former singer of British band Incognito, Sheldon Reynolds - singer of Earth Wind and Fire, Eric Marienthal - saxophone player, Angela Johnson - R&B, Jeff Lorber - jazz piano player and producer, Marcus Miller multiinstrumentalist and bass guitar player and many others.
A lost chapter of genius from vibes player Billy Wooten – and a great one too! The set's a rare outing with Hammond giant Groove Holmes – laid out nicely here in a quartet setting that offers up plenty of Billy's great vibes mixed with the organ – in a mode that's very different than anything else Wooten ever recorded, and which really takes us back to the best soul jazz years of 60s Prestige Records! The group also features great tenor from Jimmy Coe – a player we don't really know at all – and drums from Jozell Carter, who works nicely with the rhythms from Holmes' work on the Hammond. Titles include "Blue Bossa", "Bags", "Groove's Blues", "It's A Groove Thing", and "I Remember April."
This jazz-funk combo summons sophisticated grooves for grown-ups and connoisseurs. The veteran group hosts a range of rich female voices, including Maysa (the sublimely patient “Al I Ever Wanted”) and Vula Malinga (the buoyant club track “Better Days”). They’ll rekindle adult-oriented R&B for anyone looking to dance, romance, or simply turn down the lights and luxuriate.
Experience Gloria Gaynor is the second album from Gloria Gaynor, released in 1975 on MGM Records. The album charted in the US Billboard at #64 in the US Pop chart, and at #32 in the US R&B chart…
The supporting cast may have changed, but The BOSTON HORNS continue to turn out some of the area's most inventive and infectious music. Boston Horns is anchored by tenor saxophonist Henley Douglas Jr., trumpeter Garret Savluk and guitarist Jeff Buckridge. Stop by and bring your dancing shoes because when you hear their irresistible blend of funk, rock and jazz, you will have to move.
Afrodesia expands upon the soul-jazz sensibility of organist Lonnie Smith's classic Blue Note efforts, abandoning their hairpin-tight, diamond-sharp grooves in favor of more meditative, free-flowing epics that draw on elements of Latin jazz, pop, and even disco. Featuring a supporting cast including then-unknown saxophonist Joe Lovano, electric bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Jamey Huddad, Afrodesia features some of Smith's strongest, most nuanced work; the imaginative arrangements create panoramic stretches of space for all of the players to explore, and they push the 15-minute "Spirits Free" into compelling new spheres of funk consciousness.
Paul Hillier, best known for his recordings of early music, brings that sense of urgency and simple piety to the delicate religious music of Arvo Part. This is music which combines gentleness with real force, and the intelligent singing, and capacity to make moments of silence tell as much as grand effects, is entirely admirable.
