New Orleans native smooth jazz recording artist Quintin Gerard W. returns home to complete his debut CD project release locally in the New Orleans area in October 2004 and scheduled for national release in January 2005 and support his hometown resources and economy.

Smooth Jazz recording artist Quintin Gerard W. (OTS Music) has returned home after pursuing a successful career in music. Moving to Los Angeles, California in 1989 to pursue his career in smooth jazz, he has worked with many of the top names in the business Jeff Lorber, Kenny Garrett (former saxophonist for the late Miles Davis), and has a host of recording soundtrack performances to his credit.

This Louisiana home grown smooth jazz saxophone sensation has returned home to complete his debut CD “Fnkysax” and support the local economy with this project. Quintin’s project has been produced utilizing almost exclusively local vendors in the New Orleans area. The CD was recorded in La Place at 90 degree studios, using local artists and musicians to include Saheedah Miller and Lyntrelle Perrilloux for vocals and Curtis “Mikal” Duras for keyboards and co-writing. The CD was mastered by Parker Dinkins with Master Digital in New Orleans, fabricated by New Orleans’ own Crescent City music services, and currently being distributed by Louisiana Music Factory with radio air play accessible through New Orleans Internet radio station

When asked how he feels about having completed his debut CD (released under the OTS Music label) supporting his hometown economy, he says “I am thankful to have had the opportunity to complete this project in this way. I feel great about this. I don’t think I could have produced as good a CD had I not been here to enjoy the comforts of home… the peace, freedom of creativity and expression, and the ability to relax. Being home, I am able to focus on the business of my music unlike anywhere else.”

OTS Music has released Quintin's debut CD locally in October 2004, with national release scheduled for January 2005.
