Jazz encompasses so many different sounds and the instruments used to create these sounds are all distinctive. However, there is nothing like the sound of a well-played saxophone. Saxappeal has the sound that will melt the brick wall of discomfort and make your day pleasant; as in "Time to Unwind". Listening to a jam session of Saxappeal reminds me of the Gerald Albrights and Kenny Gs I've grown up listening to. His rips are very deep, nodding my head anticipating the next note, wondering how he just put that string of notes down; as in "Time Flies". This is just what I've been looking for, "It's You", "Time Flies" and "Through The Pains" to add to my musical palette. He has a seasoned style of play that makes his music rare. He not only has a bond with his saxophone but a connection to his audience. He’s not one of these get on stage and simply play the music artist. He’s a get on stage, transform the music to feelings, and leave the audience as if they have just witnessed a dramatic play type of artist. I've been captivated by his sound and the way he speaks to his audience with his sax and unique band Collective Peace. If there are any artists that are up and hot... Saxappeal is that artist. Stay tuned for more of Saxappeal. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of him in concert venues around the nation and of course on the pages of “Sounds of The D”.
