DREW DAVIDSEN | True Drew | Independent

Could the next big thing in Smooth Jazz hail from Maryland? The answer is a resounding “yes,” and the artist is Drew Davidsen! Davidsen, who plays a sweet guitar, is no rookie, as TRUE DREW is his fifth CD, he scored a Smooth Jazz hit with “Astro” and was nominated as Best New Artist by the American Smooth Jazz Awards. If you love the instrumental music of luminaries such as Larry Carlton and George Benson (who is Davidsen’s hero!), you’ll flip for TRUE DREW. His gliding guitar style is soooo smooth, and it propels such party songs as “95 South” and “Hi5,” the latter already making a move on the charts. Davidsen rocks his guitar on “Do Right” and “Double or Nothin’,” both of which will be show stoppers at live shows. Throw in guest appearances from Bobby Lyle, Eric Marienthal and others, several heartfelt ballads and super-fresh updates of “Change the World” and “I Can’t Help It,” and we’re confident Davidsen is well on his way to becoming a Smooth Jazz mainstay!

Blessett’s raw sax sound is a living, breathing thing, expressed in sharp angles on “Necessary Drama,” low bursts on “I Love You” and swinging, looping lines on “It’s Been Fun.” There’s a bit of something for everyone here...
