With a seamless flow of sounds from soulful R&B and contemporary jazz to neo-soul this album has it all! Deborah’s seasoned voice belts out effortlessly in the R&B songs “Movin On” and “Sneakin Around”. “Sneakin Around”, an original composition, filled with a funk filled playful vibe, “Dream on Dreamer” and “Ain’t No Sunshine” (a Bill Withers classic) display the mellow silky flavor of smooth jazz with some unexpected yet warmly welcomed surprise turns along the way. Bassist, Marcus Miller takes it to another level in Deborah’s rendition of, “Do I Do” (By Stevie Wonder).
There’s even a touch of some soft rock found in the Lenny Kravitz classic, “I Belong to You”. Adding a more mature vibe to the song list, Deborah sings in sultry elegance the jazz standard, “The Man I Love” featuring a stellar performance by Eric Marienthal on sax. Undoubtedly you will not be able to sit still during Deborah’s original song, “Move Your Body”, which evokes an urban funk sound that commands you to do just that!
Fantastic musicians: Keith Jacobson and Jason Weber on sax and the majorly talented Nathan Brown on Bass through out the cd....
Producer, Jeff McCullough, owner of Tree Hill Media, applies his creative soulful talent to every song. Jeff’s musical arrangements take the songs by storm! Each melody, each composition, takes you on another musical journey making this CD an experience of pure joy!
Deborah Flores, in her unique style and soulful vibe, provides something for everyone’s musical pallet.

Saw you on the Jazz Links group page. Really enjoying your music! Hope the shows at Catalina and Spag's went well. Is there a gig together in our future? I'll be playing at the Temecula Jazz Festival in May (not far from San Diego, yes?). Hope you're staying busy.
Why that's nice of u, it certainly would make a difference. Most of the clubs do have a performer guest list, as long as it's modest. After all they r in business to make $$ and so do u and the band. Tell u what, when u know for certain why don't u give me a jingle at 626-676-6574.
It has been a while since I've seen Kevin, Chad & John & will b good 2c them again & meet u "in person" as well.
I'd like to, but Catalinas can be so doggone expensive...LOL! I mean I m not the cheapest man in the world, but each time I have gone there (outside of workin') I've always felt like I spent too much. However, I have not been to this latest location, only the last one. I know almost your entire band...isn't that something?
Hello Deborah, glad to be your friend on TJN. I will try to come out and see you Wed. sounds great, and if your free, your invited to come out and see me Tuesday, the 17th, at Harvelle's on 1432 4th ST. in Santa Monica, at 9.30 pm. Give me a email, and I will get you on the guest list. Take care, Victor Orlando.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
