Album Notes
Trumpeter/Vocalist/Composer, Jack Cassidy, has created a landscape of sound and adventure.
The Islamic "Adhan"or Call to Prayer, was recorded in the streets of Istanbul and set to music filled with peace and hope. Next stop, Lleida (jay-ee-da), Spain. Come hear violinist Zara Z and guitarist Dale Prasco, capture the essence of this lovely Catalonian retreat. Moonlight Bay entrances you with the Jamaican coastline, while the Dub Plate, " Drum Song" carries you further into the jungle. Hear the artistry of DJ Kream, as he lends his wisdom to the ever present theme of unity and love. Horns, vocals and 25 studio musicians, have come together to explore
Jazz Funk, Urban R&B, Latin and World Music.

Add pleasure to your day
Some days don't start out well. You're working on finishing one stressful project while a boss is asking for updates on another, or you're trying to keep the kids busy (and safe) while preparing a meal and cleaning up footprints. You imagine a better day: evening romance or sunlit love, boisterous rallying against injustice or quiet intimacy with a lover. This better day is closer than you think--in Jack Cassidy's soulful collection of jazz/funk, Latin rhythms, and world beat music, Symbia.

Just slip Symbia into your player and you'll be skimming through that project and dancing as you wipe the floors. Cassidy's vocals are smooth and soothing, covering a range of emotions and tone color, with a genuineness you let into your home gladly. The liner notes say the selections take you from Istanbul to Jamaica to West Africa to Spain to his home again in Chicago. And these travels might be what help create the eclectic feel of the selections, which cover a range of moods from a laid-back meandering calm to charged energy to rhythmic sensuality. Yet, with all the styles, the pieces remain accessible: after one listen, I found myself singing and humming the selections.

Cassidy is a versatile musician contributing on vocals, trumpet, flugelhorn, French horn, piano, organ, and percussion, along with a number of other talented musicians who mesh well with the varied styles Cassidy weaves. Highly recommended as music to improve your day!


Great music to carry you through your day!
I have listened to this CD well over 100 times, and never tire of it. Jack Cassidy’s music has accompanied me through the ups and downs of life. From the soothing vocals in, “Love is Forever,” to the exciting rhythms of the “Samba”, this is one CD that will stay in the front of your collection for a long time to come.

The Lady in Pink

This is THE most soothing - absolutely inspiring - CD to date!!! Jack Cassidy's passionate voice & "prego" *it's all in there* music brings you on a spiritual adventure you won't want to return from! What an incredibly brave person Jack is - to take us on his journey of love and life! Thank you for such a wonderful album! This NEEDS to be shared...
