In the beginning of Alfonzo Blackwellâs career, the mission that he was on since his debut back in 1995 was to bridge the gap between Contemporary Smooth Jazz and soulful R&B/Hip Hop Funk. Alfonzo has always had his eyes on the pulse of whatâs Hot and whatâs Not, coming from the shedding ranks of jazz legends such as the late greats Miles Davis and John Coltrane. He was bread off these magnetic musicians/performers.
He ushered in a new music movement, âRhythm & Coolâ back with his debut hit CD, âLetâs Imagineâ¦â Well, he urged listeners to get out of their seats and dance and have fun and feel good inside with tracks like âCanât Stop The Funkâ , âUptownâ and a jazz/funk cover of Mary J Bligeâs classic âLove No Limitâ just to list a few. âThis is what music was meant to beâ¦it feels good and itâs good to feel itâ says Mr. Blackwell. âMy message through my music is my voice, calling attention to all and I want people to feel me and where Iâm at in my music journeyâ¦â. He also goes on to say, âThereâs no sleepy time at any of my performance shows, I want everyone to get up on that floor and dance, like the late great James Brown declared.â
