Rhett Mays Creatures of the Night Album is Exceptional Rock Music Release

Some musical stories are more interesting than others. The story of an Englishman born in Calcutta, enlivened by the sounds of classic sixties music, transplanted to Australia by the dawn of the seventies, and then shut out of the musical ambitions he held so dear for thirty plus years before triumphantly reconnecting with that first love is the sort of tale one often finds in the movies,” said Joshua Stryde (of indiemusicreviews.net) when describing Rhett May and his incredible journey with music.

Rhett May’s newest album “Creatures of the Night” is truly one of the most exceptional albums to hit the music scene in recent years. Although undeniably a rock album, the music incorporates elements of pop, jazz, funk and psychedelic. It was absolutely May’s diverse and international life that lead him to create such a versatile and impressive album. He showcases his mastery of the guitar as well as the sitar, an instrument rarely used in rock music. In addition to creating such a phenomenal album, Rhett went the extra mile and shot a creative and gripping video to go with the title song. You can watch the video on his YouTube channel.

To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.

Dave Bargeron and Geoff Alpert Bring Trombones Back to Popular Music

Trombones have long been under-utilized in music today. However, with dedicated players like Geoff Alpert and Dave Bargeron becoming more well known, the trombone may yet come back to the foreground. Geoff Alpert’s smooth jazz music has come from a long path of struggle. He lost his wife to cancer in 2002 after a long hiatus from music and, after this horrible event, found his way back to the musical community. The support he received from Darryl Williams and Gail Johnson allowed him to output his emotion and passion into smooth jazz music. He blended this with his love for the martial art Ken-Ka-Kung Fu and found a truly inspired fusion in his music.

The incredible way that Geoff works smooth jazz into R&B, pop, latin and funk grooves is remarkable and that he does this all with the trombone in the forefront of the sound is even more impressive. If you haven’t yet, you can listen to the album on iTunes, CD Baby  and Amazon.

Geoff Alpert’s Smooth Jazz Fusion Album Open Your Heart Impacts Music Scene

It is truly rare to find the kind of dedication and emotional investment in music that Geoff Alpert displays with every note he plays.  After a 30 year hiatus from music when Geoff dedicated himself as a husband and a father, he has returned to the scene and brought with him a groovy smooth jazz based sound that features the trombone and that is making a huge impact on the smooth jazz scene.  Although Geoff’s music contains some very smooth jazz-oriented grooves, he pushes himself to incorporate other genres such as R&B, which results in a beautiful fusion of genres.

Geoff lost his wife to cancer in 2002 and, after soul searching, was motivated to re-join the musical community.  He took the emotion and passion from this loss and, after meeting director Gail Johnson and bassist Darryl Williams, was lead to create a musical statement and image that closely ties to his life story.  Geoff’s passion for the spiritual Eastern Martial Arts discipline is also an integral part of his music and inspiration.

You can listen to the album on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.

Be sure to keep up with Geoff on Facebook, Twitter, Reverbnation and his official website www.GeoffAlpert.com for any updates.
