Patrick Yandall Releases New York City Blues

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Diego, CA-April 30, 2007-- International recording artist/guitarist Patrick Yandall has released his eighth album titled New York Blues.The recording is a departure from what listeners have heard over the years from the versatile guitar wizard. Yandall has taken his music in a more straightforward blues direction yet he keeps some of his jazz fusion elements intact throughout the run of the CD. Those accustomed to hearing only the artist play the guitar will have the opportunity to hear his soulful vocals on several of the tracks.

Patrick Yandall has performed live or in the studio with such artists as Randy Brecker, Carl Evans Jr. (Fattburger), Tommy Emmanuel, Ready Freddie Washington, and was offered the guitar seat for Kieko Matsui. He has been acknowledged several times during his career with Jazz Times, JAZZIZ Magazine, Smooth & Soul, Smooth Jazz News, City Beat, San Diego Reader, and many smooth jazz internet publications.

Yandall quickly learned to let his music do all the talking while growing up in a military family that was constantly changing. Playing the trumpet provided an outlet for the young musician, and the loneliness associated living with a traveling family subsided. The advent of a football accident would lead Yandall to the guitar. A three-month hospital stay and a sympathetic father, who loved jazz, would encourage Yandall to pick up a guitar book. It did not take long for his life-long obsession with the six-string to develop and as the saying goes-the rest is history.

“Deception Point” showcases the Yandall expertise with the guitar and the classic Curtis Mayfield track “People Get Ready” takes on a new meaning without words. Yandall personifies the magic of instrumental music on every occasion on the recording.

New York Blues has a good mixture of vocal tracks and instrumentals; it is the kind of blues, rock, and jazz that offers everything for the demanding listener. The CD features the essential rudiments of jazz and rock, providing plenty of emotion and motivation for the performer and the listener. Yandall does what he does best, play some amazing guitar licks and produce a fitting tribute to the blues.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

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…
