Guitarist Freddie Fox's new single My Crusade is a departure from his usual uptempo jamming sound found on last year’s Top it Off. It comes from his latest album Limitless. Freddie elects on this release to just play some soothing guitar with a hint of island flavor. This is one of those songs that will compliment whatever you may be doing. It’s perfect for middays when you’re at work or while you’re getting that early evening jog in.

The JT Project is back on the scene ready to pick up where their “Tenth Anniversary” release left off. This mid-tempo track is properly called Laid Back.

Grammy nominated Jazz artist Chan Hall returns with a nice mellow track featuring Tony Craddock Jr.  This Wilson, North Carolina native who now calls Richmond Virginai home continues his hit music making ways with Stay Awhile.   Teaming his keyboard skills with those of Saxophonist Tony Craddock delivers a song that will make you want to cozy up to your radio or hug that someone special.  This cut from his new album Somethin' 2 Prove will make perfect sense when you hear Stay Awhile on Serenade to The City weekday evenings 10p on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
