"Liquid Soul" the jazz/fusion CD from Gemini Soul featuring Ajamu Akinyele is musically inspired by bassists Stanley Clarke, MeShell Ndegeocello, Marcus Miller, the smooth sounds of Sade, and pianists Dave Brubeck and Michael Cain. Gemini Soul's new release "Liquid Soul" gives you the ultimate experience in a new direction in jazz...Cyber Jazz.
Ajamu Akinyele & Jon O'Bergh are back with their new release "Liquid Soul," which features new original music, plus favorite standards such as Peggy Lee's "Fever," Stanley Clarke's "Yesterday Princess," Sade's "Kiss of Life" & "Hang On To Your Love," and Dave Brubeck's "Take Five." "The Chocolate Factory" written by Jon O'Bergh, is a track from his anticipated upcoming project "Song of Fire." The entire CD is produced, arranged, composed, and performed by Andre Marcel Ajamu Akinyele and Jon O'Bergh, known as the Cyber duo "Gemini Soul."
Producer/bassist Andre Marcel Ajamu Akinyele, pronounced Ah-jah-moo + Ah-kin-yay-lay, and pianist Jon O'Bergh have produced a solid CD that captures your spirit and soul, while providing a unique sound called "Cyber Jazz - Funk Fusion," continuing to redefine jazz for a new generation.
Jon OBergh plays keyboard and piano in a style that would appeal to fans of Herbie Hancock, Tori Amos, Sade and Dave Brubeck; while Ajamu Akinyele plays bass laying down pure funk in a style that would appeal to fans of Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Prince and MeShell Ndegeocello.
