Brian Simpson: "2013 is a banner year for Smooth Jazz keyboardist Brian Simpson. Highlights from Just What You Need include a percolating “D’Groove” featuring sax icon Gerald Albright, the romantic “In The Rain” featuring Marc Antoine, a brilliant guest performance by Dave Koz on the Jobim classic “Girl From Ipanema,” and much more! Brian is a perennial favorite at the Smooth Jazz radio format – in fact his first single release went to #1 and stayed in the top 5 for 5 months!"
Phil Perry: "A former member of the Montclairs, Phil Perry later teamed with Richard Sanlin in a duo that had a short stay at Capitol in 1980. Their first single stalled at number 81 and the album fizzled. They continued as songwriters and freelance producers. Perry issued his first LP, The Heart of the Man, for Capitol in 1991, but it didn't chart either, but its single, a cover of Aretha Franklin's version of "Call Me," hit the top spot on the R&B chart. Despite the hard knocks, he was undaunted. Perry established himself as a "go-to" session vocalist. He has worked with Lee Ritenour, the Rippingtons, Patti LaBelle, Anita Baker, Peabo Bryson, George Duke, Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand, Boz Scaggs, Sergio Mendes, Bill Withers, Johnny Mathis & more".
Eric Darius released his latest album and Shanachie Entertainment debut, On A Mission, in the summer of 2010. Danny Weiss, VP of Jazz A&R for Shanachie states, “If you think of jazz as a wonderful tree whose trunk is its great tradition and whose branches are the never ending innovations of its young disciples, then Eric Darius is the newest branch of that tree. He can swing like the masters and funk like a hip-hopper; truly the blossoming of tomorrow's jazz.”
