MARK ETHEREDGE - CONNECTED
Contemporary jazz keyboardist Mark Etheredge's newly released album, “Connected,” is produced by two-time GRAMMY® winner Paul Brown, has already been called one of the best of the year. “Connected” is a sophisticated session of live-sounding contemporary jazz, R&B grooves, souled-out pop and zesty Latin rhythms brought to life by an astute ensemble that boasts Chuck Loeb (Fourplay) and Brown on guitar and an animate horn section top-lined by noted saxophonists Greg Vail and Andy Suzuki that breathes force and fire into the tracks. Etheredge’s deft and dexterous piano and keyboards carry melodic messages of self-discovery, empowerment and affection. With plenty of radio-friendly cuts from which to choose, expect “Connected” to issue multiple singles that bode to keep Etheredge’s breakthrough record on the charts through the end of the year.
CHARLES BRADLEY - CHANGES
Soul singer Charles Bradley’s star has been on the rise since the release of his widely praised 2011 debut album No Time For Dreaming. Dubbed “The Screaming Eagle of Soul,” due to his riveting live performances, the singer is proud to present his highly anticipated album Changes (named for his popular, “smoldering” (SPIN) cover of the Black Sabbath track.) By now, Charles Bradley’s remarkable, against-all-odds rise has been well documented: how he transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs before finally being discovered by Daptone's Gabriel Roth. - ~ www.newreleasesnow.com
