WaKaNa

Japanese Saxophonist WaKaNa has collaborated with singers, rappers and DJs. She made her U.S. debut in 2018 with her album Saxcess Story produced by Greg Manning. She’s back with SilK , the title track to her new self released album. SilK is a song that lives up to its name but don’t think this is a laid back song. SilK has some bounce that will have you nodding your head or grooving in your seat.

Blake Aaron: Sunday Strut (feat. Najee)

As we ring in the New Year many of your favorite Jazz artists are releasing new music. Guitarist Blake Aaron jumpstarts 2021 with Sunday Strut, the third single from his Color and Passions full length released in September of 2020. This infectious single featuring Najee is an  uptempo tune designed to get your New Year off to a lively start.

When I received the new version of Turn Your Love Around I immediately downloaded it eager to hear it. First, I’m a longtime George Benson fan, even before working with him briefly while at Warner Bros Records. Secondly, this is my favorite Benson song and third, but not finally, it’s a live recording!
