The soulful and infectious piano-driven tune, which eases from a sensual laid back opening into a lively, grooving and free-flowing jam is Written, Arranged and Performed by Carol and Co-produced by Carol with Producer/Keyboardist Trammell Starks. “Chasing Waterfalls” features the dynamic ensemble of saxophonist Sam Skelton, guitarist Chris Blackwell (whose spirited acoustic solo is a highlight), bassist Joseph Patrick Moore, drummer Wayne Viar and Brazilian percussionist Rafael Pereira. It was engineered, mixed and mastered by Starks.
The Single “Fly Away Butterfly” from the Album entered 2018 with the envied Top 5 Billboard Smooth Jazz Chart Position and remained on Billboard for 18 weeks. Other Charts include Smooth Jazz Top 20 at #2, Groove Jazz Chart at #1 for 3 weeks, RadioWave Monitor at #1 Position for 3 weeks, MediaBase, and SmoothJazz.com. The Single “One Way” from the Album was Carol's Debut Billboard Entry at #29 and Charted on all major Smooth Jazz Charts in 2017. Carol Albert’s release “Mas Que Nada” from “Fly Away Butterfly” hit Smooth Jazz Radio with a welcome reception from audiences across the globe and was embraced by SiriusXM Watercolors and other major Radio stations. “Mas Que Nada” hit all the Smooth Jazz Charts with enviable charting positions and remained on Smooth Jazz Charts for six months after release.
"While Carol has made her mark in numerous musical worlds throughout her multi-faceted career – from the educational realm to new age to TV theme composing – she has rapidly found a niche as an insightful, globally conscious groove and melody-centric contemporary jazz pianist and composer. While not featuring vocals as some of her previous songs have, her latest single, the wistful and spirited “Chasing Waterfalls” captures the essence of the way we go after dreams in a life of challenges, and the way we rise when the world conspires to make us fall. Its movement from contemplative, easily rhythmic verses to explosive, free-spirited choruses reflects the dynamic ebb and flow of life itself – from uncertainty and “testing the water” to full immersion on the path to achieving goals that make life worthwhile. Like her previous single Fly Away Butterfly” it’s a heartfelt song that’s perfect for this moment in time – and another exciting Single from her best full length album yet in “Fly Away Butterfly”.
