Dennis "Finger Roll" Nelson to Put a Jazz Vibe on Their #1 Hit Song "My Girl"
Bama Sweet Records (BSR) announced the release of their third CD project on the smooth jazz label featuring incredibly talented jazz guitarist, Dennis Nelson. The new CD, Back on Track's first single release is the remake of "My Girl" featuring Otis Williams and the Temptations putting a jazz spin on this legendary Motown hit.
Back on Track, the highly anticipated release by Finger Roll, featuring Dennis Nelson, presents fresh new original compositions such as Never a Dull Moment, Wishing You Were Here and Under The Radar and classic covers My Girl by The Temptations and Jose Feliciano's, Light My Fire which showcases Nelson's richly textured intonations and rapid-fire guitar fluidity. "Dennis Nelson plays the guitar the way Picasso stroked his canvas with a brush," said Otis Williams, the original founder of The Temptations.
"My Girl is synonymous with the grace, style and musical essence of Otis Williams and The Temptations so we wanted to give it new life with a jazz spin on it, said Mike Patterson, President of Bama Sweet Records. "When we combined this great song, featuring performances by the Temptations, with the laser production and jazz musical arrangement of Dennis Nelson - it was pure magic."
Affectionately known as "Finger Roll," Dennis Nelson is truly a one-of-kind musician. His strong Louisiana music roots, developed while he earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music at Southern University, have led him on a musical journey through R&B and a variety of Jazz and Afro-Cuban styles. Dennis' second CD, Still Rollin, was nominated as the Best Independent Jazz Record of the Year in 1998. Norman Connors, Jazz legend said, "The Finger Roll CD In The Zone, released in 1997, display some of the nicest arranging of traditional Jazz tracks combined with the hottest contemporary licks I have heard in a long time. He has such a unique sound."
His guitar fluency is in demand from coast to coast for concert tours, recording dates, clinics and personal appearances. Dennis is also a featured artist on the Hidden Beach "Unwrapped Vol II" along with jazz greats Patrice Rushen and Jeff Lober. A prolific songwriter and producer, his songs have been covered by Lakeside and the Temptations. During his 8-year writing and producing collaboration with Otis Williams, Dennis, along with other top producers, was instrumental in the Temptations' album Ear-resistible, winning a Grammy for Best R&B Traditional Vocal R&B Album in 2000. His accomplishments also include writing Hyperactive for Robert Palmer's Riptide CD which earn him a Platinum and Gold album.
