Music Love / Geoff Alpert Releases Groovy New Jazz Funk Album, Open Your Heart
« Last post by greendarts on April 18, 2017, 05:41:59 PM »
Being a self taught trombone player, Alpert spent many years perfecting his sound. He played tirelessly for years, but then took a break from his playing in the early 80’s to be a devoted father and husband. 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.

His newest album “Open Your Heart” comes at you with a mix of jazz, pop, R&B, funk and Latin sounds that can speak to anybody who listens. The album highlights Alpert’s exceptional trombone playing, which is something that you don’t hear regularly. The album will be sure to keep you up on your feet and dancing along to the wonderful sounds.

You can listen to the beautiful collection of ten songs on iTunes here: bit(.)ly/GA-iTunes, CD Baby here: bit(.)ly/GA-CDBaby and Amazon here: bit(.)ly/GA-Amazon.

Be sure to keep up with Geoff on his official website www(.)geoffalpert(.)com for any updates.

Very very useful tips its made my practicing exciting not bad for a pensioner

Just found a Jazz/ Funk bassist that sounds like my favorites Marcus Miller, Larry Graham, and Stanley Clarke. His name is Mitchell Coleman Jr. and man is he kickin it old school with his album Soul Searching! Hands down, my favorite track so far is “Flow”. Veteran Motown producer Michael B. Sutton helped produce the song and it definitely gives it that classic funk sound that I just love. Check it out on iTunes here: bit.ly/iTunes-Flow-MCJ and you’ll totally see what I mean.

This guy is definitely going places; I mean his album “Soul Searching” has made it on to the Top Albums list on CD Baby this week! Mitchell has a Facebook at: bit.ly/MitchellColemanJr, Twitter  at: twitter.com/MitchOnTheBass and website MitchellColemanJr.com if anybody wants to look up more info about him
I didn't understand a crap as i don't understand Spanish, but I loved the feel of the track "My Cuban Friend" I mean "Mi Amigo Cubano”. It is on my playlist now.  :) 8)
