For more than 10 years now, standing room-only crowds have been lining up to hear the band FINGERPRINTS at clubs and music festivals throughout the southwest. Since the 1991 release of their self-titled CD, FINGERPRINTS, the Dallas based sextet has expanded its range, garnering regular airplay on jazz and NAC radio stations from Dallas to San Francisco to New York City. This increased exposure has earned FINGERPRINTS critical raves and many thousands of loyal fans across the country. "People have called in to find out more about the music and are very excited when FINGERPRINTS comes to town," says Jeff Redding of Oklahoma City's Smooth Jazz 97.9 KTNT-FM.
Their debut independent CD sold more than 10,000 copies. FINGERPRINTS second release ,Summertime Music, has since surpassed that number and reached top twenty status in both Radio and Records and the Gavin Report. The opening track, Whisper,on this disc continues to be a favorite of many programmers across the country and abroad. It features long time friend and saxophonist Marion Meadows. The bands third release Reunion Live proves to be a definitive statement in the evolution of their musical growth and popularity. They can also be heard on This is Texas Smooth Jazz CD sampler, released in fall 1996. The bands 4th CD, DNA was released in the fall of 2001.
FINGERPRINTS has performed at major festivals in Dallas, Houston, Memphis, and Washington, DC. They have also performed or recorded with artists such as Ronnie Laws, Art Porter, Marion Meadows, Bobby Lyle, Thom Browne, and Freddie Ravel.
FINGERPRINTS was founded in 1986 by guitarist Roy Machado and bassist Frederick Nichelson. At the time both men were students at the prestigious University of North Texas. Nichelson is originally from Memphis, where he grew up in the shadow of many STAX legends and their contemporaries such as The Memphis Horns, Kirk Whalum and pianist James Williams. Drummer Kennan Wylie, from Austin, Texas, earned a Master's degree in Music from UNT. When not on stage he serves as an educator where he and his groups have won various awards at the international conferences for the Percussive Arts Society (P.A.S.). Saxophonist Claud Hardrick hails from Wichita, Kansas. His sultry, intelligent play epitomizes Fingerprints' musical philosophy: striving for the cutting edge, while retaining respect for tradition. In addition to the core group, FINGERPRINTS frequently features guest vocalists. Recently, singers have included Ardina Lockhart (featured on the band's debut release, DNA) and Tim Jones, a versatile stylist and dynamic live performer.
Finally, the rest of the world is discovering what the south has secretly enjoyed for years! It's no wonder that FINGERPRINTS is grabbing the attention of listeners craving more than formulaic commercial jazz.
