Carlos Cannon, "Chicago's finest," is the pure example of a cool, smooth jazz saxophonist. Chicago's Fox News says "He's like a romantic pied piper," capturing the attention of his listeners. While Jazztimes says Cannon's sax styling as an "effortlessly expression."
Cannon's masterful fusion of jazz, R&B, funk and pop is catapulting him among the urban and smooth jazz artists of today's contemporary music. With 2 albums to his credit, the multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer has sold over 45,000 records of his 1st CD, "In the Name of Love," making him one of the most successful independent jazz artists to sell his CD's via internet, concerts and other venues. Cannon's 2nd CD "Thinking of You," showcases his knack for playing timeless melodies and creating cuts that make you want to get up and dance. "In The Name of Love," showcases all originals with the exceptions of three ingenious instrumental cover tracks; "If you want me to stay," performed by Sly & the Family Stone, "I wanna be where you are," artist like, Michael Jackson, "I have nothing," sung by Whitney Houston, and a spritural, "Precious Lord, take my hand." Carlos Cannon is one of those rare artists who can give you that sultry ballad, rev up a soulful dance number and or get down right funky with the best.
