Album Notes
The Close to You project was produced, arranged and performed by Drummer and Percussionist Ernest EC3 Coleman and Clynt Hyson of Rhythm Universal Records' and Pianist and Composer, Dr. José Manuel Garcia. Joining them on the cd are some pretty incredible musicians: Bassist Craig Shaw; Francisco Quinonés, Rafael Pereira, Percussions; Sam Skelton, Oliver Santana Rivera and Teddy Baker, Tenor Saxes; William Knowles, Piano (track 11); Thomas Crosson, Guitar (track 11); Sol Edler, Duet (Track 11); and introducing eight year old Naja T. Jackson singing a refreshing chorus on Stevie Wonder's Come Back As a Flower (track 9). Here's to Life, track 4, will leave you satisfied yet wanting more and Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now will rekindle life's precious moments. I've Been Here, written by EC3, is Tiya!'s affirmation that it is her time. In fact, from beginning to end, Tiya! Close to You, will warm your soul and lift your spirit high. Sit back, exhale, relax, and listen.

Close to You is an artistic spectacular
Wonderful group of artists. Jazz is so alive. I enjoy the variation of styles and sounds while admiring Tiya's vocal ranges on such selections as "I wish you love"; "Beautiful Friendship"; "Body and Soul"; and of course "Come back as a Flower" with Tiya and Naja.

"This Kind of Certainty Comes But Once in a Lifetime"
As I listen to “Close to You”, I’m thinking "WOW!" Our Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Whitney Houston and Shirley Horn have come back! Finally a refreshing, new kind of jazz vocalist is emerging again. Tiya’s vocals are as clear, crisp and refreshing as the female jazz artists from back in the day! I have been missing the sounds of a dynamic, seasoned vocalist who can sing the kind of song lyrics that have the heartfelt meaning of what real love can be like. Tiya has her own style, but so reminiscent of the love of life and music we shared in our yesteryear. Keep it coming Tiya!!!! Keep it coming!!!!


Easy Listening!
Tiya is a remarkable and very talented artist. I don't think I would ever tire from her wonderful voice. The selection of songs chosen for this CD flows beautifully from one to the next. I enjoy listening to this CD very much it kinda puts me in a relax, romantic kind of mood if you know what I mean :-)....BUY IT! Its a must have for your collection.

Tiya! Close to You
Tiya! Close to You, simply the best! In single words, this album at its best is sultry, soft, sensual and sensational. Tiya takes the listener on a lyrical ride inspiring you to sing along, dance and to reflect on the good times. My favorite, "Come Back as a Flower" features the beautiful vocals of Tiya's granddaughter, Naja. What a delight! Tiya! Close to You is right on time for Valentine's Day. Thanks Tiya!
