Rome,Italy (PRWEB) May 7, 2006
After 30 years of playing sax and flute all over the world with top artists such as Natalie Cole, Paul Young, Zucchero (Sugar) Fornaciari, Carl Anderson, Randy Crawford and many others, Eric Saxman Daniel, together with DJ/producer Luca Cucchetti and an All-Star line-up of Friends, is droppin’ some very cool nu soul grooves in his first solo album: Eric Daniel and Friends, Old Sax Nu Soul.
And it’s about time!
It all started two years ago, at least the first session happened back then. In truth how can you say exactly when projects start. All involved move through their lives, meeting each other, becoming friends and evolving individually until something happens that brings them together, a catalyst, a project. The mixture is right, a spark flashes and BOOM, you tell me. Just Nature’s way I guess!
Each of the 16 tracks is a journey in itself, yet the best way to listen to it is as a kind of Urban R&B/ Nu Soul suite that progressively pulls you ... deeper than deep, down to the place where the soul folk’s meet... as Nigerian master story teller, Dr.Feelx so aptly describes the vibe in his intro to the title track Old Sax, Nu Soul.
Soulful, soulful, soulful is what Miss Jenny B is about on this track’s lead vocal, not to mention veteran Orlando Johnson’s soul and gospel drenched backing vocals. New York bass man Tim Fritz keeps everything in the pocket. Eric is in there of course in the role of the Old Saxman!
The Ghetto, a true urban soul odyssey into a free blowing soundscape, is getting strong response from local radio airplay. It’s been previewing in exclusive at the leading Urban Black Music Radio in Rome (Radio Centro Suono /101.3 fm). The anticipation is building day by day…
The radio launch date in Italy is 25 May and the buzz is already on among the DJ’s and radio listeners who’ve had a chance to hear this very original and well produced project.
At this point however, let’s meet….
