Jersey City, NJ, April 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Rhythm Dynamics, Inc. is proud to announce "Jazz My Soul" CD by The Jazz Explorers, a new collective jazz workshop built on a deep creative foundation with broad appeal.
This extraordinary project features great performances by a unique gathering of jazz legends, including George Cables, Dave Liebman, Carmen Lundy, Billy Hart, Sonny Fortune, Victor Lewis and Cecil McBee with a strong supporting cast. "Jazz My Soul" propels contemporary mainstream jazz forward with power and subtlety.
The Jazz Explorers perform the soulful original music of composer, producer and band leader Tim Duffy, whose influences include Duke Ellington, Howlin’ Wolf, Charles Lloyd, Sun Ra, and James Brown.
Producer Bob Funk, owner of Rhythm Dynamics, brings to this project a broad range of musical experience, as an original member of The Uptown Horns, including live performance and/or recording with Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, BB King, Stevie Wonder, Tom Waits, Albert Collins, Sammy Davis Jr, David Sanborn, James Brown and Frank Sinatra Jr.
"Jazz My Soul" features two shimmering vocals, "We're Only Human" and "Autumn" both with deep under currents, exquisitely interpreted by the great Carmen Lundy, that bridge the classic/smooth/contemporary categories. The instrumental tracks of "Jazz My Soul" convey a broad range of emotions from the driving hard-bop "International Ballistic Soul Kiss" with a burning solo by Dave Liebman, to the funky smooth groove of "Mo Trane", to the profound piano of George Cables on "Our Father", "Mystique" and "Moroccan" culminating with the heartfelt tribute, "In Memorium, Elvin Jones" delivered by former band mate, Sonny Fortune. From atmospheric to inspiring, "Jazz My Soul" is the real deal.
