ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ronald "Boo" Hinkson

Ronald "Boo" Hinkson's talent transcends cultures and sounds, bringing a fresh and innovative blend of jazz and Caribbean music. A gifted composer, producer, and heralded guitarist, Boo's unique approach and versatility enable him to deliver a distinctive signature sound.

Born in St. Lucia and raised on a diet of Ellington, Davis, and Coltrane, Boo's name is synonymous with St. Lucian music. His mother, who was also an accomplished guitarist, was his first teacher. His musical career began with the Tru-Tones, a group he started in St Lucia, who commanded stages locally and internationally for two decades. So much so in fact, that their eclectic blends of Caribbean and pop rhythms garnered them an appearance at Superbowl XIII. Today, he is an exceptionally accomplished musician who has stayed true not only to his Jazz roots, but also to his West Indian culture. Boo couples his appreciation of the old masters, with Contemporary Jazz, and Soca in his music and lyrics; and as a result his popularity has continued to spread.

His Zephryn Records debut CD entitled "Beyond" is a testament to his growth as a musician and as a composer. It is a rich, emotive and warm collection of contemporary and straight ahead Jazz tunes delivered with his own unique Caribbean flair. With solid guest appearances from Arturro Tapin, "Pieces Of A Dream" vocalist Tracy Hamlin, and other surprises, "Beyond" is a well rounded musical gem. Boo's talent and presence are revealed in each track, bringing about a renaissance to romance. It is a true highlight of his versatility as a musician.

With a performance track record that includes international stages from the Caribbean, to the U.S. and Europe, Boo has opened for scores of musical greats including Al Jarreau, India Arie, and Grover Washington. He was recently featured at a state function for former President Bill Clinton. His music has been showcased on the day-time television show "One Life to Live." BBC, BET Jazz, and Bravo TV have also aired his live performances.

Stanley Jordan describes Boo "as a genuinely gifted and accomplished musician." George Benson praises his technical prowess and improvisation. Ronnie Laws has described his playing as "extremely soulful and intense." Frequently compared to Kenny Burrel for not only his natural touch on the guitar but also his polished image, Boo plays the guitar with fire, soul, and astuteness. "Beyond" is sure to be a collector's item for any real Jazz enthusiast.

"Beyond" is available from Zephryn Records in select stores as well as on-line.

This music makes me feel like I'm in St. Lucia! It lifts my spirits every time
Boo Hinkson plays that guitar like nobody's business. The vocalists on the CD are among some of the best voices out there. Congratulations to J. Waller - you are a musical genius. Zephryn Records is on to something exciting!
