ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is about redemption, rebirth and truth, coupled with the musician's love of their art and the song. It features musicians who have been heard on thousands of CDs playing what they want to play how they want to play it. It features performances from folks who have played with James Taylor, Justin Timberlake, Prince, Carly Simon, Alicia Keys, Carly Simon, Chaka Khan, Cameo, Hall & Oates and many, many more. They have played on songs which have formed much of the soundtrack of the last thirty years. For a musician, performance and writing and recording is art, catharsis and just what they do. In the case of this CD, the death of John Blackwell's daughter Jia (to whom the album is dedicated), meant that this record was a necessary release of emotion and love. To achieve that aim, John surrounded himself with like minded musicians who shared the desire to do something different: to tap into the jazz tradition and to play with soul and funk; to draw on personal and musical inspiration; to pay tribute to those who came before and at the same time to leave their own legacy on the musical world. This is a self released CD which always strove to put the music and the musician first and has succeeded in doing so. It pays homage to past trailblazers but never loses its own spirit: a spirit which is unique among much of the music available today. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed playing!

I did not wait for it BUT
I did not wait for it (because I did not know about) but now it is the one cd i play very often.
I bought it because i like John ' s playing with Prince and of cause
Uncle Will, always inspired(still) from his brother from another mother.
The music is played on the point not spectaculess but with taste, power and fun.
I miss more music like this!

Excellent
This is an excellent cd just can't get enough of it! From the energetic Funk/Jazz tracks to the beautiful mellow ones its got it all. If what you want is real music by real musicians then go no further.
This is what music should sound like.........hit play and take the journey!
