Jazz/Pop Crooner Spencer Day's New CD 'Daybreak' Receives Rave Reviews!


“Spencer Day is one of the best undiscovered musicians you will hear this year.” - ListenHereReviews.com

San Francisco, CA - The music press worldwide is buzzing with excitement about the release of jazz/pop crooner Spencer Day's critically acclaimed CD 'Daybreak'! Spencer Day is widely regarded for his original songs that blend compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements. Audiences around the world have enthusiastically supported Spencer for over ten years at venues as diverse as Birdland in New York, the Hollywood Bowl, Jazz Alley in Seattle, the Pacific Rim Jazz Festival in Manila, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Feinstein’s in San Francisco, Tanglewood, the Craig Ferguson Show and at music venues and festivals across the U.S. and worldwide. Spencer has a widely diverse and enthusiastic fan base in the U.S., Asia, Latin America and Europe.

In response to the positive press his new CD has been garnering, Spencer has this to say, “Once again I am amazed and humbled by the reaction we have gotten both from friends, fans and from the media. This has been a delightfully grassroots effort all around and I'm so happy it continues to have such far reaching appeal. In an age where there is so much media noise, the referrals of well-respected friends and critics can be the difference between getting your music out there and having it lost in the fray. Thanks to all those who continue to give voice to our artistic efforts.”

Spencer Day recently returned to his musical roots with his fifth full-length album 'Daybreak', and his first independent album in seven years. His past two albums were released on the legendary Concord/Jazz label. With 'Daybreak', Spencer has created an album of signature interpretations of well-loved songs from the 1960’s along with five brand-new compositions written in homage of these classic American tunes.

Here's what the press have been raving:

“Album number five from jazzeteer, Spencer Day, sees him paying homage to the sixties, with an album split evenly between originals and covers. And it’s good.” - the-rocker.co.uk

“Day's music is simply charming, from top to bottom. Where should we place him? Jazz? Pop? Crooner’s music? Which genre really does not matter.” - keysandchords.com

“You'll get a jazz look at the 1960’s that'll get your toes tappin' and your fingers snappin'…. The whole album is a great listen that pulls you in. Spencer Day's 'Daybreak' definitely gets a thumbs up from me.” - Shakefire.com

“Classics including Groovin, A World Without Love and Never My Love, have been re-imagined and interpreted in Spencer’s trademark honey baritone voice.” - JazzTimes

“He sings like he’s a seasoned jazz musician, and his natural charisma and presence really make (his music) highly enjoyable…Spencer Day is a charming musician from start to finish, as his songs will keep you wanting to hear more, and after hearing his latest effort, new music cannot come fast enough.” - ListenHereReviews.com

“Very original jazzy covers of song classics from the 60’s. He knows his music classics very well, as is evidenced by the choice of those five numbers.” – Rootstime, Belgium

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 …
