Hollywood, CA (PressExposure) October 29, 2008 -- Project Grand Slam promises to hit plenty of homeruns with the October 28 release of their debut album Play.â With five of its thirteen tracks and the band having already been prominently featured on the hit NBC Series âLipstick Jungle,â the eclectic contemporary jazz band is savoring the fruits of early success. But thereâs plenty more where that came from: loaded to the brim with smooth musicianship and joyful jamming. Acid Jazz Magazine states, âProject Grand Slam is a spectacular mix of jazz, fusion and rock that combines melody, groove and great improvisation.
Headlining Project Grand Slamâs first foray is the current radio track âThe Captain of Her Heart,â a cover of Doubleâs 1986 chart-topper. Aided by noted vocalist Judie Tzuke, the songâs cool vibes and velvety aura allow Play to hit its stride early. That momentum continues thanks to the steady hands of Project Grand Slamâs players, who composed most of the albumâs tracks. With Robert Miller on bass, Haim Cotton on keyboards, Ron Thaler on drums, and Gilad Ronen on sax, true jazz fans will know theyâre in store for a special ride. Up-tempo grooves like âStudio Oneâ and âBecause She Said Soâ start things off right, while slower numbers like âBaal HaSulamâ and âShades of Memoriesâ demonstrate the quartetâs versatility. As producer Frank Filipetti says, âGorgeous tunes, great beats. This record is a home run.â Audiences everywhere will undoubtedly agree.
Project Grand Slam is the collaboration of four accomplished contemporary jazz leaders who count Return To Forever, Bela Fleck, and Bruce Hornsby among their influences. They have performed with many notable artists, including Sarah McLachlan, Rob Thomas, Alicia Keys, and Herbie Hancock.
