Geoff Alpert’s new Smooth Jazz Fusion album “Open Your Heart” is a terrific collection of ten tunes that takes musical ideas and influences from not only the jazz universe but also funk, rhythm and blues, pop and Latin music. Alpert took a lot of inspiration from some of his favorite artists, including the great Raul De Souza.
Both Alpert and De Souza are known for being impressive trombonists and they both strive to make the trombone a prominent part of their music. Safe to say that the trombone adds a great funky element to the smooth jazz music they both create.
