ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
While growing up in New Orleans in the late 50's and 60's,a lot of music was engraved in my soul. I exposed to all kinds of music from 2nd line to Brass Bands ,Jazz,along with Rhythm and Blues. I remember on Sundays there would be a 2nd line just for the hell of it, a constant flow of music played for people to enjoy them self. Those were good times... I remember we would visit my cousin's house uptown on 3rd Street on Sundays, where across the street a Sanctified Church would play music all day long, not to mention the great tambourine players that played in that church. Yea the big Easy... music always spoke to your soul!! This CD is dedicated to my upbringing in New Orleans, the music inside my soul, The New Orleans In ME!Please visit Kenny's web site@www.kkaremusic.com

Like a trip to N.O.
First of all let me say that if you want to hear something that will compel you to get up and move around the room put this cd on.The groove on Mozartin' gets me going everytime that I hear it,and I don't dance!Other highlights for me include Kenny's singing on CC Rider,the brass band and the writing featured on Buck Jumpin,the 8th track which is called New Orleans and is really a beautiful tune,and the James black waltz New Arrival.The whole cd is just so evocative of New Orleans.Thanks Kenny

Quality at Its Best - Must Buy
If you want good music, then look somewhere else. BUT…if you want the BEST of the BEST, then HERE IT IS! Quality at its best…bar none!
I have had the pleasure of following Mr. Sara and his music for many years since his first CD. Truly I must say that I have always had the greatest experience as his talents brought me from one musical journey to the next. There are not that many musicians out there that can captivate and maintain the audience as Mr. Sara does, time after time. His ability and craftiness to maneuver from style to style is one of a seasoned musician and showman. Mr. Sara exhibits exceptional relentless talent, and an understanding (historically and musically) of how to interpret a variety of genres. He is a musician’s musician!
Mr. Sara’s band exhibits a wealth of musical expertise with longevity in the industry. Each musician is of the finest musical caliber, not lacking, and outperforming many in the industry. It is evident that Mr. Sara spent valuable time in hand picking each member to make the ingredients blend. As it is in New Orleans, all the ingredients well blended together make the Gumbo a great meal. Yeah, the Big Easy... That’s why he has the music in him! The New Orleans in him.

New Orelans In Me
I moved away from Nawlin 33-years ago and after listening to, "New Orleans In Me" it took me back to my heydays in Nawlins. It was nice to reminisce listening to Kenneth's Nawlin intonations/drawl. I felt a sense of back home comfort. Thanks Kenny for taking me back home.

The Real Deal
Kenny recently sent us a copy of his latest CD: New Orleans in Me. As he describes in the opening narrative, Growing Up In New Orleans, this album is his tribute to the rich and varied musical styles that were all around him as a kid in New Orleans.
The first half of the album features an instrumental jazz lineup. Pianist, Composer, and Teacher Gary Fukushima lends his arranging and performing talents to these songs. Track 1, Mozartin', is reminiscent of the great Thelonius Monk, with elements of Be-Bop, Cool Jazz and Avant-Garde Jazz. Track 4, Lil Sugar, guest stars Abe Lagrimas on Vibes. Tom and Jacob saw Abe, a phenomenal multi-talented musician, playing ukulele in the Hilton Lobby during the 2008 NAMM show last year. Track 6, Landscapology, is one my favorites. With its dissonant, interlocking piano lines, this Fukushima composition also reminds me of T-Monk, Coltrane, and other avant-garde jazz icons. Track 8, New Orleans is written by Debbie A Sara. Kenny starts by caressing the drums with brushes. He sings softly and sweetly on this sentimental, bluesy number, and maybe sounds a bit homesick for “The Big Easy.” On track 10, Harlem Nocturne, Kenny brought in his trusty band-mates from The Sounds Of New Orleans. The Rock’n Roll edge of the band becomes more evident in contrast with the more traditional sounding Jazz and Blues tracks up to that point. Track 11, Feel the Power, shows Kenny’s Gospel side as he plays this song of praise by the legendary Reverend James Cleveland. Track 14, Buck Jumpin' might be my favorite of the album. With Vince Tividad laying down some bad-ass bass lines on the sousaphone, this horn, reed and drum arrangement captures the exciting party atmosphere of New Orleans. I could close my eyes and imagine a marching band rocking down the street in the French Quarter, with girls dancing on the balconies. All in all, a big thumbs up for this CD! - Joel Savell

OUTSTANDING!!! You just keep getting better, Kenny. The New Orleans influences are as evident as always in your sound, however the maturity in which you convey these roots is what turned me on in this effort. THIS CD MAKES MY FAVORITE'S PLAYLIST. Thank you for bringing the joy, the blues and perserving the culture of the people..KEEP IT COMIN'
