Masterfully “Cool”: An album unlike any other…
Bob James and Nathan East
“The New Cool,” an expansive acoustic offering centered on scholarly jazz piano and bass duets, will be released September 18, a first from the GRAMMY®-honored artists and long-time collaborators.
Nashville, Tennessee (7 July 2015): Albums just aren’t made like the way “The New Cool” was made. Yamaha Entertainment Group label president Chris Gero put legendary keyboardist Bob James and master bassist Nathan East in the recording studio, equipped them with state-of-the-art Yamaha gear and gave them free reign to create. Recorded entirely in Nashville, the long-time collaborators emerged with an unexpected and audacious collection of original compositions plus a few handpicked classics, an acoustic jazz outing that will make you forget everything you thought you knew about these GRAMMY®-recognized artists best known as contemporary jazz luminaries. The disc produced by Gero, James and East will be released September 18.
Fourplay had the opportunity to celebrate their 25th anniversary with Berks Jazz Fest GM, John Ernesto.
Stay tuned for the 25th anniversary album, SILVER, due to be released later this summer!
Go behind the scenes with Fourplay, as they record their new album SILVER…
Celebrating 25 years of musical magic!
A few years ago, my wife Cindy and daughter, Chaia, saw Fourplay at Jazz Alley. I wasn’t able to make it for health reasons, but Cindy went, and Chaia took my place. They brought a gift for the guys, and you were so courteous and helpful; a real gentleman, and you made them feel so special. I will always be grateful for that!
This morning, in my morning devotions, I was listening to Fourplay, Live in Japan, and recalled that time, during Argentina, and many other times that I am grateful for in my life. It was a healing moment. I broke down, but it was a good breakdown! I wanted to pass that along to you. It’s amazing what music can do.
February found Fourplay back together in the studio to record their 25th Anniversary album, Silver, at the place where it all began…Sunset Sound.
Fourplay would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
The future is shaped by us all, so let’s make 2015 a truly amazing year.
Peace & Love…
