EoJ 1st Look ☞ Al Jarreau - "My Old Friend: Celebrating George Duke" 


This love-infused project includes guest artists Gerald Albright, Dianne Reeves, Marcus Miller, Lalah Hathaway, Jeffrey Osborne, Kelly Price, Dr. John and more! Plus, a special performance by George Duke. :)

 

 

The world of music was forever changed in 2013 with the passing of legendary keyboardist, composer and producer George Duke. This year, Al Jarreau, famed vocalist and long-time friend of Duke, re-interprets some of Duke's renowned catalog of post-bop, jazz-fusion, R&B and Brazilian jazz with My Old Friend: Celebrating George Duke set for release August 5, 2014.

KickStarter Campaign! Grace Kelly's "Working for the Dreamers" EP & Full album

Yesterday, I had a discussion with @Jazzipedia about how he would love it if saxophonist Grace Kelly could sit in with The Roots on The Tonight Show. I agreed that it was a cool idea and then we went back and forth about how does an artist get to sit in with the Tonight Show band? Mike (@Jazzipedia) mentioned that he was going to contact a few of the late night shows. I'm going to assist him with that somehow and that's when it came to my attention that Ms. Kelly has an active Kickstarter campaign going on!!

 

Check out below what exuberant Grace has to say about her current project:

 

(Special note: the gifts that she mentions in the video that should be on the right can be viewed here.)

 

Calling all fans and friends! I need your help to release my new music!
