True Vibe Records has reached a new milestone, as it releases its newest and hottest single yet, titled “Give It All U Got!” It will be the lead track of the album “Give It All U Got!” which will be available next year. This will be a third in a
series of CDs, following the highly-acclaimed “Paradise Presents Jazz Funk Hip HoPoetry” and
“Jazz Funk Hip HoPoetry—Phaze 2.” Two outstanding bonus tracks are also included with this new single.
As the title suggests, according to True Vibe Records owner/ producer Bill Jackson, “this fast, upbeat, inspirational song is a celebration of life, encouraging people to live life to the fullest.” And this phenomenal trailblazing track guarantees to thrill the listening public with its unique dazzling mix of various genres of music and performance art, including: Afro-Cuban/Latin Jazz, R&B, Funk, Hip Hop, and Spoken Word.
A line up of top flight artists affiliated with the non-profit organization Urban Voices Collective were recruited to lay down this slammin’ new joint. Elegant songstress extraordinaire Shavone Pickett grabs your attention and engages you right away with her dynamic, rapid fire delivery of the chorus, penetrating through the fanfare of hard-accenting horns, pulsating funk-style bass, and Latin rhythms. Then lovely and talented background vocalists Chayla Smith, Derekah Jayne, and Ardra Taylor pave the way for lead vocalist Bill Jackson to take this irresistible groove to new heights, as he and Chayla urge people to “Be real with ya self.”
Listeners get a special treat as the red hot, new on the scene Salvadorian MC Kalizay (pronounced Cal-I-zay) prompts them to pursue their dreams and aspirations with her smooth flow and exotic style of hip hop lyrics in both Spanish and English. She also praises “my brothers for breakin’ the cycle away from stereotypin’.” Then the party continues as charismatic San Francisco Bay Area slam poetry icon Paradise captures your imagination with his lofty visions of a “cultural world fair in Oakland” and a “United States of Africa.”
To take it on home, accomplished pianist Ben Ball (he plays other instruments too) and veteran tenor saxophonist Melvin Bell (both graduates of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston) really light spirits up on a high note with their blazing solos, leaving you wanting more.
But that’s not all! Two outstanding bonus tracks have been included to top it off.
Sensuous songstress Shavone Pickett is featured running down a love theme along with special guest sexy hip hop artist Wisdom (Meisha Page) and a spicy guitar solo by Jam ‘G in this new rendition of the Reggae/ R&B/ Hip Hop mix titled “I Can” (Make You Love Me). On the last track, highly-acclaimed featured vocalist Rufus Wonder is joined by Chicago native Jam ‘G playing a funky-style blues guitar, monster pianist “Spiderman” (Michael Robinson), and virtuoso alto saxophonist Ben Ball in this lively up tempo cover version of Charles Brown’s classic “Merry Christmas Baby.” For more information, go to www.trueviberecords.com
