Midday Jazz On WCLK

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!

Bassist Byron Miller returns with Real Love, a beautiful song that’s just right for those summer nights or any night for that matter if you have the right companion. The song features Stevie Wonder on harmonica, an opening that sets the tone as Walter Beasley’s saxophone brings his signature sound to compliment Byron’s bass style.

Art Sherrod Jr, is a Jazz artist who has been influenced by some of the genre’s best saxophonists. This former U.S. Naval Academy student hid his talent while at the Academy only to recognize music was his true calling. He’s shared the stage with artists such as Angie Stone, Will Downing, and Najee. The brand new single Rhythm of Life (Train Station Records) really captures his feeling about music & life, because life does have a soundtrack.
