Eric Daniel has not received any gifts yet
Hi, I'm Eric Daniel from Boston/Rome and many other places...
Hopefully this is where you become curious about my jazzy nu-soul project "Old Sax Nu Soul" and/or my curious little book "The Saxophone Survival Kit, A Guide for Aspiring Professional Saxophonists...or just anyone" (like you, perhaps)
So have a nice visit and if you have a good time here, remember to tell a friend and absolutely ...drop by often for updates! Have fun,
THE SHORT STORY
After 30 years of playing sax and flute all over the world with top artists
such as Natalie Cole, Paul Young, Zucchero "Sugar" Fornaciari,
Carl Anderson, Randy Crawford and many others, saxman Eric Daniel,
together with DJ/producer Luca Cucchetti and an All-Star line-up
of "Friends", is droppin some very cool, very sexy nu soul grooves in his first solo album: "Eric Daniel and Friends, Old Sax Nu Soul".
And it's about time!
It all started two years ago, at least the first session happened back then.
(It seems like only yesterday...)
In truth how can you say exactly when a project starts. All the people
involved move through their lives, meeting each other, becoming
friends and evolving individually until something happens that brings them all
together, a catalyst, this project. The mixture was right, a spark flashed and BOOM, you tell me.
Just Natures way I guess!
Each of the 16 tracks is a journey in itself, yet the best way to listen to it
is as a kind of Urban R&B/Nu Soul suite that progressively pulls you
deeper than deep, down to the place where the soul folks meet,
as Nigerian master story teller, Dr.Feelx so aptly describes the vibe
in his intro to the title track Old Sax, Nu Soul.
Soulful, soulful, soulful is what oh so fine and Divine Jenny B is
about on the title tracks lead vocal, not to mention veteran Orlando
Johnsons soul and gospel inspired backing vocals. New York bass
Tim Fritz keeps everything in the pocket as always.
Of course Eric is there too, in the role of Old Saxman in the story.
The Ghetto, a true urban soul odyssey into a free blowing soundscape,
is getting strong response from local radio airplay in the Eternal City.
Its been previewing in exclusive at Rome's leading Urban Black Music station Radio Centro Suono, 101.3fm).
The anticipation is building day by day...
The question on everyone's lips is "where can I buy it?"
