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

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…
