Retired NBA Superstar Trades Basketball for Billboard Charts

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


San Francisco, CA--February 19, 2007-- Retired NBA Superstar, Terry Cummings has made a smooth transition from the NBA to the recording studio. The former NBA star formed the Cummings Entertainment Group several years ago to manage his record, film, internet, and multimedia ventures. Terry, a self-taught musician, has recently found a home for his signature style of smooth R&B fused with Gospel and Urban influences when the Cummings Entertainment Group signed an exclusive distribution agreement with RNLG Distribution, LLC. RNLG is a label group distributed by Koch Entertainment, the number one ranked independent distributor in North America several years running. Terry Cumming's first RNLG/Koch release, T.C. Finally, is slated for an April 10, 2007 release date. "Cummings is a gifted self-taught musician," says label president, Rob Nonies, "He possesses something that's long missing in today's pre-packaged music scene-passion."

Cummings is as dedicated in the studio as he was on the court; trading in his sneakers for piano keys and platinum plaques. His new album T.C. Finally, is a worthy effort very much in the tradition of some of his favorite vocalists such as Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, Al Green, and Gerald Levert. The album is a sublime song cycle performed by a man who has lived a dream and experienced the soul, gospel and jazz essence...it is everything that Terry Cummings is.

In addition to basketball and musical skills, Cummings is a multimedia all-star. He has produced, written, and directed several television commercials, acted in a Spike Lee Joint film, and has toured the world as a motivational speaker. Although retired from the NBA, Terry Cummings shows no sign of slowing down; the young-at-heart philanthropist and recording artist will perform his music on the world stage this year with the help and support of RNLG.

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
