Bansko Jazz Festival 2014

Wow is all I can say..

Complete unexpected overflow of joyous emotion.  The spirit if Bulgaria is preserved in such a unique collection of picturesque landscapes, quaint villages reminiscent of a Robin Hood film, appreciative smiles and warmth along with soulful exotic sounds smells and tastes...

The lack of modernization leaves one to feel strangely intrigued by the simplicity.  Maybe nostalgic would better describe my sentiments.  Children actually playing with one another.  Dancing and grooving to jazz, blues and rock with no exception to age.   Townspeople gather and enjoy one another's company over a coffee or snack!  

Heaven on the Hudson

Heating things up in Harlem...

We had the honor to perform at the Hudson River Cafe on June 20th sponsored by Heaven on the Hudson Summer Music Series... What an amazing way to start the summer... 

For those who don't venture up north I encourage you to check out this spot.  It's under the West side Highway resting on the Hudson so it gives the perfect blend of Urban Serenity... 

Kicking things off we had the DJ Desim on the decks spinning the soulful house, old school hip hop and r&b joints you know and love. She definitely brought it which led way for the first live act which would be yours truly....

As always I shared the stage with my fam.. Evan Ubiera on guitar, Tony "TOSTONE" Rodriguez on Congas/Vocals, Cody Rahn on drums, Alex Minier on Bass and Kaley Puckett on keys bringing our original blend of soulful acid jazz latin fusion...

Our flavor gave way to some other amazing performances including Anya ft Aby of TKA, Louie the 13th & the fabulous Niki Darling & the Sound.  We had the pleasure of having the lovely Staxx Cordero & Lady Kim Sledge host the event.  

We would like to thank the audience for their love and support it was very special!  

Check out some pics and live footage from the amazing evening...

"YOU & ME" BSC FEAT. JESSI COLASANTE OFFICIAL VIDEO RELEASE!!

Check out the recent release of our official video for track titled:

"YOU & ME" BSC feat. Jessi Colasante

It was a little over a year ago that the introductions would be made between myself & Brazilian Soul Crew/Grooveland Music.  i was pleasantly surprised to meet such talented yet humble beings which as we all know can be a rarity in this business.  But don't get it twisted they can throw down with the best of them!

We share a love of life, music, and love which in my opinion, is the true definition of soul!  "You & Me" combines soulful grooves, fresh rhythms and sweet vocals echoing the faint sound of swing.  The blend of Brazilian flair &  New York flavor makes the ultimate recipe for a tasty treat!  

We were blessed to have had the honor of Swift creating this video (concept, shoot & edit)!  I don't have to tell you.. See for yourself!
