The key to the charismatic saxophonist’s success? Beyond those instantly identifiable sax tones, infectious melodies, cutting edge production,and dynamic live performances, it’s one thing: Tenacity–the perfect title for his latest recording on PeakRecords (and 10 th overall).With the 20 th anniversary of his recording debut coming up next year, Taylorremains a fresh and vital, forward thinking force in contemporary urban jazz. Talent and vision are agiven, but sometimes those things fade. It’s his Tenacity that’s made the difference.Althea Renee was born December 25th in Detroit, Michigan and began her musical journey at the tenderage four. She studied classical music while attending Howard University in Washington D.C. and latergained further musical inspiration from the accomplishments of Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and herfather (one of Motown's original Funk Brothers) Dezie McCullers. She has since developed her own InApril 2017, Althea René, in collaboration with award winning producer Lew Laing, delivered anothersolid tour de force. “Gypsy Soul” is the first single release from her powerful, scorching hot CD“UNSTOPPABLE”. Althea Rene also launched her first book in June 2018 entitled "Becoming ChocolateBarbie - a guide for professional women in the music business."Jeanette Harris is the scintillating saxtress of smooth jazz. This lady understands that energetic andcaptivating performances matched with uplifting and inspiring vibrations in the music are the solidplatinum recipe for success. Fans already recognize her for her wonderful cover of Stevie Wonder’s “All IDo,” which hit Billboard’s smooth jazz singles chart from her previous album, Saxified. Classically trainedin both sax and piano, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, and the saxophonist forthe late, great Teena Marie’s final year of touring, Jeanette has weathered the fiercest challenges tobring the world her own brand of soulful healing vibes. That baptism awaits in her fourth CD, SummerRain, on which Jeanette had a hand in writing all of the selections except her lovely cover of the LutherVandross classic “Here and Now.” Its 11 sunny songs wrap the listener in the glow of fun love groovesand sweet romance.
