Ambler, PA (PRWEB) July 8, 2009
The soothing ambience of Slot-1 Studios has catered to an eclectic taste of musicianship over the years. Just recently, Philadelphia based jazz sextet Drivetime brings 2002 American Idol Runner Up Justin Guarini to the mic plate, where he lead sings to a handful of classic from 'What You Won't Do' to 'Let's Stay Together'. These jazz style renditions will be featured on Drivetime's new studio album titled "Reflections", due to release sometime in August.
The new release was recorded and mixed by Slot-1 Studio's very own Rick Denzien, where he also co-produced the record. "Reflections has the honest sound of real instruments, human feel and human taste", stated Denzien. "This version pays homage to the original, written and released by the great Bobby Caldwell."
Drivetime has grown from a regional cover band to a national brand, captivating audiences for over 10 years with high-energy performances of what's been phrased as an 'urban organic style of jazz', bringing unmatched energy to the stage.
Now with Justin heading the mic on the project's lead tracks, all parties look forward to the potential fan growth. "Drivetime is a rock-solid band that has been working hard on the East Coast jazz scene for a couple of years and it was an absolute pleasure to work with them on their project," mentions Guarini. "'What You Won't Do' is a classic tune that I grew up with, and I jumped at the opportunity to record when Bernie Capodici asked. A big shout out to Rick over at Slot-1 Studios. Thanks for a great experience," adds Justin.
In celebration of their new release, Drivetime, featuring Justin, will be performing live this Thursday, July 9th at Warmdaddy's in Philadelphia from 6pm to 8pm.
Slot-1's label arm will be digitally releasing 'What You Won't Do' featuring Justin Guarini as a single, which will be impacting Internet radio within both the smooth jazz and urban AC formats in the coming months, available at AirPlay Direct.
A live video studio session of Justin singing to 'What You Won't Do' can also be seen on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9BN0IXHtVo . The track can also be heard on CD Freedom's player at http://members.nimbit.com/mediaplayer/class/track/id/2137509/index.php .
