A new season approaches and new happenings are on the horizon.
The New Single “Sol Ipanema” from the Carol Albert “Magic Mirror” Album is gaining momentum going for Radio Adds September 4. Justin Rogers shot a great video, which is now available on CarolAlbertMusicOfficial UTube Page. We had a blast making it with Guitarist Stephon Williams and Dancers Leah & Tyler Winkler, LC & Keith Lynn, Angie & Josh Sarno, Joanne & John Rainone and other friends cheering us on with makeup artist Kimaris Jones supporting with her magic.
The Summer seems like it was short as it’s winding down now. I have always felt the most productive in the Fall for some reason. When I look back, even in my school years, Fall gave me a boost of energy to dive into new projects. Maybe it’s the cooling down of the weather or just that all the schools start again for the school year and it allows more time to focus. Regardless I find myself in a creative mood and writing new songs for my next album, new collaborations and possibly other artists as well. All things are possible.
Highlights of my Summer shows include Performing for a MS Bike Ride Event sponsored by State Farm Thomas Waters in Birmingham, Alabama. Great Southern hospitality can always be counted on with Thomas Waters & his Associates. Travelling to Elmira, New York was challenging with flight delays but once we were all there it was great fun performing for the Ferrario Elmira Jazz Festival, which uses proceeds to fund the Elmira Economic Opportunity. Mountain Brooke Jazz Festival in Tryon, North Carolina proved to be a great musical day. Bryson Promotions did a spectacular job with the Wine & Jazz Dinner, a well-organized Jazz Festival and making the Artists feel special. Closing out the Summer series will be a show at the Grayson Amphitheater September 9th, which is free to the public. Bring your chairs and blankets and hang out with a great band for the night starting at 7 p.m.
“Magic Mirror” Album has been submitted for Grammy Consideration to the “Best Contemporary Instrumental” Category. If you haven’t heard the full Album yet it can be listened to on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and all digital streaming outlets as well as purchase of the physical CD from my Web Store.
There are more upcoming shows October 27 Suwanee Dam Dinner, Suwanee, Georgia, Women in Jazz, Lyman Center for Performing Arts, New Haven, Connecticut and more so stay tuned to my website for new announcements.
