A Star-Studded Ensemble Of Contemporary Jazz Players Join Together For The Ultra Melodic Smooth Jazz Cafe!


Featuring Frank Gambale, Chuck Loeb, Hal Lindes, Brian Tarquin, & Denny Jiosa

Los Angeles, CA - Pull up a chair, grab a cup of joe and get ready to hear some of the most lush, harmonious jazz guitarists around at the Smooth Jazz Cafe! This new project, set to be released September 30 on Purple Pyramid Records, features Australian jazz fusion great Frank Gambale, former Dire Straits guitarist Hal Lindes, Stan Getz sideman and current member of Fourplay, Chuck Loeb, and the Grammy nominated Denny Jiosa. And the whole thing is helmed by the supremely talented, multi-Emmy winning Brian Tarquin, who wrote all of the songs and produced the album as well as performs on it.

Hal Lindes waxes poetic about the project and its leader, calling Tarquin a “supreme maestro of the Gold Top and Marshall Stack” and describes the Smooth Jazz Cafe album as “an exquisite journey fueled by steel and wood, glowing hot tubes and Celestion speakers being pushed to their limit and beyond.”

Denny Jiosa shares “Brian and I met several years ago at the Gavin Smooth Jazz radio convention when we had simultaneous hit records. Great melody, tasteful playing, warm tones, and smooth grooves are always delivered by Brian! I am honored and excited to trade musical lines with such a versatile player!”

And finally, Chuck Loeb offers “I had a lot of fun playing on it. The band killed!”

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, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

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…
