Tom Randles, Destination Music City

Tom Randles -][- Destination Music CityMP3– [Flyjazz Music, 2012]

Contemporary jazz guitarist Tom Randles gets down to business and back to his soul roots with his fourth CD, DESTINATION MUSIC CITY. Randles, an award winning multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, recorded his latest project in Nashville Tennessee, home to some of the finest musicians and sound recording engineers on the planet, creating an aural landscape you’ll want to explore again and again. Check out Randles’ jazzy version of famous R&B cover tune, PEOPLE MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND! Fine solo saxophone work by Kenny Anderson (Gloria Estefan, Tom Jones, Larry Carlton, Arturo Sandoval, Bobby Caldwell) and master trumpet player Jim Williamson (Aretha Franklin, Michael McDonald, B.B. King, The Temptations, Randy Brecker) take this project to a whole new level. “I really wanted to work with some great players and I tried to make the most of that opportunity.

Producing this CD was an amazing process and the other musicians and vocalists knew just where to take it. I am extremely grateful to all of them, including singer Tiffany Johnson featured on I’M ALRIGHT and rap artist Roy Kelly, featured on MINOR REQUEST. I used several local studios and rooms to record all 14 tracks and a few of those sessions went into the wee hours of the next morning. There are many terrific recording facilities in Nashville. Mark Thompson (Sweetbriar Studios) and mastering engineer Dave Shipley (Foxwood Mastering) are two of the finest and most helpful pros in the business. Everyone who had a hand in this recording really challenged me to produce music I hope you’ll enjoy for years to come.”

In addition to guitar, Randles played piano solo on Ivory And Lace and also played a mean bass guitar solo on Raw Bottom. So whether you just want to kick back and relax, or wake up your senses… make your DESTINATION MUSIC CITY.
