GAIL JHONSON | HerStory | Philly the Kid Music

Philadelphia born and raised Gail Jhonson is one of the most sought-after femaIe keyboardists around these days… actually, one of the most sought-after keyboardists, male or female. She’s Norman Brown’s musical director, has performed with major talent the likes of Vanessa Williams, Dave Koz, Pink… and the list goes on. She composes and scores Gospel musicals, has her own Gospel Jazz radio show, and still has time to teach and give back through support of numerous charities. Amidst all of this activity comes Ms. Jhonson’s fourth solo release, HERSTORY, lovingly dedicated to her mom. As for the tunes on the new CD, they’re fantastic, just as you would expect from a talent of this caliber. Check out the new radio single, “Cruisin After Dark,” featuring Detroit’s Lin Rountree on trumpet. Yep, HERSTORY’s a total winner, and still another feather in the cap of the “First Lady of Smooth Jazz.” ~SCOTT O'BRIEN

Patrick Bradley - Under the Sun

Under the Sun

Contemporary Jazz keyboardist Patrick Bradley knocks the cover off UNDER THE SUN, the follow-up CD to his critically acclaimed ’07 release, COME RAIN OR SHINE. To my ear, this one’s even more accessible and engaging, as he’s really let out all the stops by bringing in a team of A-Listers to collaborate with. Starting out with his co-writer and producer, Jeff Lorber, the roster continues impressively, with names like Dave Koz, Rick Braun, Eric Marienthal, Dwight Sills, and Dave Weckl...

Romancing the Bass
Painted Media

From the talented, creative San Francisco Bay Area jazz community comes a very impressive collection of Smooth Jazz music from two-time Emmy winner and premier bass guitarist, Tony Saunders. ROMANCING THE BASS is exactly that, a musical love affair between a man and his instrument. The man… son of keyboard legend Merle Saunders… has recorded with some of the best of the best (Clapton, Wonder, Ringo, and CSN just for starters). This is Tony’s third release, and in the tradition of the....
