The idea of Skip Martin’s first solo jazz project was pure and simple - "it was just time".
With a total of 26 album releases as lead vocalist with Dazz Band, Kool & the Gang and his own solo projects, Skip wanted to record a project where he did his ’singing’ through his trumpet. "I’ve recorded on both groups in the horn section but never as a solo instrument" stated Skip.
The result is ’Miles High’ filled with hip, cool, funky, smooth jazz grooves. "You’ll definitely come away ... with ... a sense of what Miles might be doing musically if he were still with us." (Scott O’Brien for https://www.tradebit.com).
’Are You Ready’ the debut single, which features Skip on trumpet and vocals is "...a laid back blend of classic styles. If Freddie Hubbard and Donald Byrd were in the same band they would open their set with this tune..." (Gene Harris, Jr., MBA and Cat Lee for https://www.tradebit.com).
Ronnie Laws appears on sax on the ’Smooth Sailing’ track in a beautiful trumpet and sax duet - ranging from sultry grooves to profound narratives.
’Miles High’, the title cut, a tribute to Miles Davis written the night Miles died, clearly shows an insightful range of diverse influences from the modern jazz era known as the Miles Years. "... jazz that can appeal to the novice and seasoned listener..." (Enorman for https://www.tradebit.com radio).
The album also includes the first recordings of spoken word poet Bronze Paragon on the tracks ’Are You Ready’ (Spoken Word) and ’Apropos’ (Spoken Word) - which just make you sit up and listen .
"I’m very excited about this project" admits Skip Martin. "It took 2 years in the making with a few starts and stops but the journey was well worth the time".
