)-- Anthony Geraci, whose career spanned more than two decades, is now considered to be one of the most highly regarded innovators in jazz, signed a brand new recording deal this week, with Sunset Jazz.
There is always a great distinction coupled with a deep rooted sophistication when you hear Anthony Geraci play his exceptional jazz style of music. Sunset Jazz Recordings signs the prestigious artist to release a brand new CD entitled The Gift. “I could not wait to announce this deal,” says Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset Jazz, “this is exactly how I want the jazz label at Sunset to grow its repertoire and Anthony’s new CD is by far one if the best jazz CDs I have heard in years.”
(Anthony) Geraci can be heard on such classic musical works and has played live with legendary artists like Chuck Berry, Otis Rush, B. B. King, Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Charles Musselwhite, and Ronnie Earl and is one of the founding members of the classic band, Sugar Ray Bluetones. Geraci had been nominated on two separate occasions for the 2008 W.C. Handy Awards and was a Grammy Nominee in 2000. Lichterman goes on to say that he wants to “create a prestigious label with Sunset Jazz and the significance of Anthony’s (Geraci) influences in the jazz community will be heard on the new album (The Gift).” “Geraci’s style of playing characterizes what the popular jazz culture has grown over decades and to this day, says (Don) LIchterman.
The jazz label (Sunset Jazz) plans to release the newly recorded Geraci CD (The Gift) before summer this year.
