Jason Jackson
April 26,2021

Saxophonist Jason Jackson has a lot to be excited about – not only is his debut EP, Movin’ On (produced by Adam Hawley) due to release May 14th – but his first radio single, “All The Way” featuring bassist extraordinaire Julian Vaughn will be up for adds at stations all over the country on April 26th.

Jason grew up in Wilmington, NC and at a young age, started to study music with long time James Brown saxophonist – Leroy Harper Jr.. While still in high school, Jason landed a gig working as a member of the house band at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC where he performed as the opening act for artists such as: Brian McKnight, Morris Day and the Time, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Michael McDonald.

Jason went on to study music at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where he earned a degree in jazz performance. After college, he continued to perform in many local and regional bands and was a regular in the wedding, corporate, and nightclub entertainment scene.

In 2011, Jason enlisted in the Navy as a musician where he was able to play for audiences all over the world including: China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Australia. During his first tour, he was awarded the Colonel Finley R. Hamilton Outstanding Military Musician Award and a few months later, he was relocated to the Seventh Fleet Band in Yokosuka, Japan where he lived for over 3 years. During this time, Jason was able to play at some of the most prestigious venues in the area as well as volunteer in several local community bands where he was able to interact one on one with young local musicians. It was during this time that Jason learned that music was truly “the universal language”.

After his military service ended in early 2021, Jason teamed up with contemporary jazz star Adam Hawley to create his first offering as a solo artist. Movin’ On is not only produced by Hawley, but includes him as a featured artist along with Julian Vaughn and Tim Bowman.

Carol Albert
March 12, 2021

If there’s anything positive we’ve learned over this challenging, anxiety ridden past year, it’s the importance of loving more deeply, being grateful for what we have and living, as the title of Carol Albert’s new single reminds us, “For The Moment.”

The Billboard charting pianist/composer may have written the soulful and lilting instrumental ballad pre-pandemic, but its sense of cool, free-flowing joy taps powerfully and insightfully into our collective need for hope and optimism amidst the trauma during this anxious age of COVID-19. Produced by Carol, the track features guitarist Paul Brown so prominently that as it grooves along, it feels like a spirited melody and harmony dance/duet between the two smooth jazz hit makers. It also includes the powerhouse rhythm section of bassist Joseph Patrick Moore, drummer Jay Williams and percussionist Curtis McCain. Brown, who produced five tracks on the album, also mixed “For the Moment.”

“Tying in with the overall theme of Stronger Now, the song reminds of being free and having the strength to not only endure but to express that freedom and love of life to the fullest,” says Carol. “When I wrote it, there was no way I could have predicted anything like this past year, but as a reminder about living and embracing the present, ‘For the Moment’ feels very relevant to what we’re all living through. “Perhaps more than ever before,” she adds, “with all the uncertainties and upheavals, we’ve had to face, we have learned about the fragility of our lives and the reality that we only have and can count on the present – so we best embrace it. Though I wrote it from a deeply emotional place as I was coming out of a tragic personal loss, I’m grateful that it can be appreciated and perhaps offer a sense of hope on a more universal level now.”

Last February, guitarist Richard Smith was in a battle for his life. Before the doctors and nurses administered the experimental infusions that he hoped would strangle the stage 3 cancer gripping his throat, his daily response to their inquiries asking if he was ready for the four-hour process that he went through for 45 consecutive days became an affirmation: “Let’s roll.” A year later and now cancer free, Smith is set to drop his first US single in 5 years, “Let’s Roll,” which he wrote with Billboard chart-topping guitarist Adam Hawley, who produced the uplifting track featuring saxophonist-flutist Jeff Kashiwa.

Shortly before Smith’s diagnosis, the former chair of the contemporary guitar department at the Thornton School of Music at USC’s former student, Hawley, sent a demo track of the single that goes for playlist adds on March 29 from Chillharmonic Media. “Let’s Roll” was to become Smith’s daily Mantra before infusions.

“The clinical trial drug I volunteered for was a daily 4 hours of intravenous infusion, as well as radiation and chemo therapy that drained my mojo to zombie levels every day. Fortunately, the drug is now in production and is a game changer” said Smith, who lost 40 pounds during treatment and has an 8 inch scar on his neck from the surgery.

The world's most famous animated movie director Hayao Miyazaki released 'Kazeno Tanino Naushika' in 1984, which has now been reevaluated in Japan.

This is the first film that Hayao Miyazaki wrote and directed. The story that predicts the confusion in COVID-19 and the lifestyle of Naushika, the main character, are popular among young Japanese.

The movie's symbolic theme song is also in the news.

The title is 'Kazeno Tanino Naushika' which has the same name as the movie. It is the debut song of Narumi Yasuda who is currently active as an actress in Japan.

The song is written words by City Pop originator Takashi Matsumoto and composed by Yellow Magic Orchestra's Harry Hosono. This is an exotic pop song with a mysterious power that you won't forget once you listen to it. It was not used in plays, but is used to promote movies. Although it is suitable for a popular single record, the melody is very sophisticated and it is very difficult to sing.

In November 2020, Japanese pop music artist Ayane Yamazaki covered 'Kazeno Tanino Naushika'. This is a new pop music that cannot be classified into genres, and is now attracting attention in the indie/alternative music scene in Japan.

Ayane Yamazaki appeared in the 2016 FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL at the age of 17. Last year, her album 'LIFE' debuted on AWAL, a UK label, in distribution all over the world. It was featured in the media around the world and became a hot topic among young indie music listeners, and on November 25 of this year, they released a new album 'Yobikakerarete'.
