Serenade To The City on WCLK

2020 was very good for Phil Denny with Billboard’s  Top 10 Lifted which followed his #1 Feel Alright which featured guitarist David P. Stevens.  Tough Get Goin’ is an uptempo song that may reflect the mood of us all after a year we won’t soon forget.

Trippin N Rhythm Records

British virtuoso guitarist Roberto Restuccia returns with Arrival, the debut single from his forthcoming album With Every Turn (Trippin N Rhythm Records) produced by Oli Silk.  This mellow track sets the mood for well…the arrival of that special someone.

Brian Simpson & Steve Oliver release a new single from their album Unified(Shanachie Entertainment).  The Road Never Ends is a mid- tempo soothing song featuring Brian’s noticeable keyboard/piano strokes complimented nicely by Steve’s well known guitarist licks. Rounding out the ensemble is Alex Al on bass, Eric Valentine on drums and Roman Yslas on percussion.  This is the kind of song that will compliment any activity, like your afternoon ride with Jamal Ahmad, host of the SOUL of Jazz daily from 2p-7p on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.

Doug Jones- “This Christmas”-  This Donny Hathaway classic is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.  Doug gives this holiday classic a funky twist but remains true to the essence of this holiday classic.
