When I first heard the blues I was hooked. I remember Joe Berger and I taking the bus to Flushing to the only record store that sold blues records. That's when I discovered the genius of Ray Charles. My uncle, Sidney Feller was his arranger and conductor and great friend. When I finally met Ray I told him that I'd been stealing his licks. He said "That's okay son, that's what I did too!" I included his "Hallelujah I Love Her So" on the Blue CD. I had the great luck to play with Albert King years ago. I covered his classic, "Personal Manager" as well. I finally got the chance to cover some of my all time favorites the "JazzMatiK" way. Also on the Blue CD are some a brand-new originals. Check out the iPhone solo on "Come Back Baby". The JazzMatiK crew laid down the best tracks to date, some featuring blues great Michael Powers, The Blue CD continues the "JazzMatiK" journey with so much more to come.
Hope you dig the groove!
Stay tuned for "JazzMatiK" Goes Country.
