ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jonathan Widran (Billboard, All Music Guide, Jazziz, Smooth Jazz News, etc...) says "Samoa Soul", "is one of the best smooth jazz releases of 2006"! Jazz Times in November issue of 2005 rated Patrick's "Eyes of Mars" release as one of the top releases of the season in an article that featured releases by Herbie Hancock, Brian Culbertson, Euge Groove, Bob James, Najee, and many other huge smooth jazz and jazz stars. Keith Hanneleck (a.k.a. the Muzikman" said "thank God for jazz musicians like Patrick Yandall'! Smoothjazznow, smoothjazz.com, raved about his "Eyes of Mars" and his "From the Ashes" releases. Ted Hasiuk of JazzLynx rated "Eyes of Mars" #6 for the year! Check out this followup and Patrick's 7th international release "Samoa Soul". This is a groovefest with some blues and latin tunes for just the right amount of spice! Nominated for Jazz CD of the year by the San Diego Music Awards! Receiving worldwide airplay! Highly recommended by the SmoothJazzClub in Italy! R&B, Blues, and Latin flavors all combine to make this a buffet of musical cuisine.
With influences like Larry Carlton, George Benson, Mike Stern, & Steve Lukather, no wonder his music is not the cookie cutter smooth jazz sound, but music with a soul that anyone regardless of age, gender, or musical tastes, can enjoy!
Endorsed by Seymour Duncan, Elixir strings, Levys Leathers Ltd, Carvin, Naked Guitars, and Mesa Boogie. See why these companies back this incredible contemporary jazz guitarist.

With his new album "Samoa Soul" Patrick Yandall proves affirmatively anew his ou
A lot of water has run down the river Rhine since my first review about Patrick Yandall's album "Back To The Groove". Times are tough and difficult today's. The audience is keeping their money and an artist has to be really good to convince the listeners to buy his album. Keeping that in mind Patrick Yandall created his personal dream: "Samoa Soul" (2006) spell bounding the audience with his vision of Island magic. Read more at the above mentioned website.

The Muzikman

I enjoyed listening to all 11 tracks on this CD.
Each one is a treat for the mind, soul, and body. Each track has a different mood and tempo while offering pure smooth jazz with Latin and R&B rudiments to give it that certain Yandall flavor that is prevalent on all his releases. You do not have to be a star in the world of music, but this star is bright and one of the most promising in the world of jazz. The Muzikman

Ed Mower

Another incredible release from Patrick Yandall
From beginning to end, the listener is vaulted into a pulsing, rhythmic world of beauty and color. The songs fill the air with amazing sounds that caress the mind and satisfy the soul. An amazing compilation, mostly featuring Patrick's many talents and diversity in instrumentation, 'Samoa Soul' shows the world of Jazz and New Age that Patrick Yandall is THE hottest talent around. His rendition of 'Sailing', originally released by Christopher Cross, makes one appreciate it all the more, and makes anew an old friendly melody. 'Dawn Patrol' captures your breath with the opening note and doesn't let go until the last one dies away some four and a half minutes later, and I dare you to stay in your seat as 'Funkin' For Jamaica' moves your passion and fever along it's awesome journey. Patrick just keeps getting better and better and we, the listeners, are the benefactors of his vision.

Smoothjazz.com Review

Top of the "Best Of" List!
Before I even got to the music, I was impressed. The album's credits list him not only as a performer (on a multitude of instruments, including all guitars, bass, synth, and piano), but as composer; producer; engineer; and executive producer. You can't be a novice or a slouch to wear all those hats. Yandall wears them all effectively. This, his seventh recording, is at once cool and hot; fresh and familiar. SAMOA SOUL is everything that is right with Smooth Jazz: grooves you can move to, melodies you can hum to and instances where you can turn introspective and just enjoy the moment. Opening with the title track, Yandall holds us captive with his superlative guitar execution. "Londons Way" has a gentle eloquence to it that is like a sweet caress. The cleverly titled, "Who's the Bossa" is also an outstanding track. While I may have two left feet, those of you who actually can dance will definitely have the urge to get up and find a partner with "Back In The Day," as it's full of charm and passion that will surely have you longing for whatever it is you didn't realize you were missing. Yandall's previous release, EYES OF MARS, was named one of Jazz Times' top CDs (along with records from Herbie Hancock, Bob James and Euge Groove to give you some perspective) and there is no doubt that SAMOA SOUL should rank in the top echelon on this year's "best of" lists as well. ~BETH LEWIS
