Saxophonist Andre Delano, an accomplished musician with a distinctive, original sound, releases his highly anticipated second album “My So Fine” on August 19th, distributed through Nu Groove Records. Delano once again commands attention of his fans with 14 original songs that include guest appearances by bassist Byron Miller (Luther Vandross, George Duke), Smooth Jazz pianist Kevin Toney (The Blackbyrds), trumpeter Greg Adams and guitarist Michael Ripoll (Babyface, James Brown, Usher). From the opening note, the Latin-flavored first single ‘Sista Caliente, ‘ which means ‘hot sista’ in Spanish, sets the tone for “My So Fine.” The new single is available for preview by visiting Delano’s websites: http://www.andredelano.com or http://www.myspace.com/andredelano.
Delano’s music is described as Smooth Soul, a new genre encompassing an appeal to Smooth Jazz, R&B, and Urban AC. Inspired by Junior Walker, Delano continues his tradition as an instrumentalist and vocalist, effortlessly mixing both successfully. “Junior Walker began as a prolific writer and instrumentalist and it was not until the release of ‘What Does It Take’ did Walker start believing in his vocal skills and singing on more records, ” states Delano. “‘The Da Da Song’ is my Smooth Soul reincarnation of the style of music Walker would make.”
