Edwards, a visually challenged pianist and composer, has been a Newark resident for most of his life. He has performed in a number of venues over the last several years as a solo musician with occasional group performances with other locally based musicians. Edwards does not stop at just playing jazz. He is quick to say that he likes all kinds of music and he usually adds a taste of different styles in his performances. You might hear a classical tune, a Michael Jackson tune or even a gospel tune at any given time.
Recently, Edwards has teamed up with two great energetic and talented musicians that have greatly enhanced his musical career. With the help and support of Vision Ventures, L.L.C., Edwards has been able to recruit the talents of Jacob Webb as his bassist and brother Nathan Webb as his drummer. Jacob and Nathan are natives of Newton Kansas. Both are impressive performers and professional in every way.
Recorded before a live audience at the Riverview Studios in New Jersey on April 10, 2010.
Produced by Vision Ventures in collaboration with Front Row Seat Studios.
The entire recording will be release in late June 2010 as a tribute to the musical styles of Erroll Garner.
