Geoff Alperts Debut Album Open Your Heart Will Be Sure To Impress Smooth Jazz Lovers

Trombonist and smooth jazz artist, Geoff Alpert has released his long awaited debut album, “Open Your Heart”. The album is a wonderful 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.  The commonality between the tracks is Alpert’s superb and prominently featured trombone playing.

After over forty years of teaching Ken-Ka-Kung-Fu, Alpert attributes much of his musical inspiration to the qualities of love and sharing that his martial arts experience taught him. After the painful passing of his wife in 2002, he went back to his roots and picked up the trombone once again and used the music as a vessel to convey his emotions. You can listen to the album on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.

Be sure to keep up with Geoff on Facebook, Twitter, Reverbnation and his official website www.GeoffAlpert.com for any updates.

Chicago Singer-Songwriter Sijay Releases Detroit Club Influenced By Soul Legends

Chicago Soul Singer-Songwriter Sijay is that breath of fresh air in a generation that has become used to auto-tuning, and loud beats drowning out poor singers. Sijay is like no other in his class, and would duet seamlessly with talents like the Queen of Soul herself Aretha Franklin. “Detroit Club” is what soul should sound like in this day and age.

His label is giving away the full length lead single “Detroit Club” when you sign up for Sijay’s newsletter. To get your free download, Click here and hear for yourself!

Between 2000 and 2009, after fronting several different bands including Lobster Newberg, recording two Studio albums and a grueling National tour, Sijay couldn’t get in the studio fast enough. Within only a month, he wrote and recorded half a dozen songs that explored genres yet to be pioneered. With influences ranging from the funk and soul of Herbie Hancock, and Stevie Wonder to the alternative rock styling of Donald Fagen, Phish and Joni Mitchell, Sijay’s album “Detroit Club’ combines these genres, and mixes some RandB and jazz.

This 22-year old defies expectations of what a 22-year should sound like. Sijay projects the experience and vocals of a veteran artist. While listening to the songs off of “Detroit Club,” you forget that this is such a young man singing! He has the soulfulness that defines the Soul genre.
