Blair Bryant: Gold
Blair Bryant is a prodigious and young contemporary jazz artist currently signed up under the Innervision Records label. Creating his own music since he was 16, he started out as a bassist and drummer but he can now play over 14 different instruments, those skills in vivid and impressive display on his latest effort, Gold.

The love song "Just For You" has the potential to be a timeless hit. Aside from its catchy lyrics, the track also features a superb string work that definitely makes an impact on the song's overall charisma. The melody in this track is smooth, groovy, and mesmerizing. "Outstanding" is completely invigorating and emotionally uplifting. It has an electronic vibe that makes the song funky, upbeat, and exciting. Its sexy melody can seduce its listeners, make them fall under its sultry spell.

The scintillating title track is embedded with hypnotic hooks. Its rhythms are tightly structured yet flow freely, resulting in a sound that is naturally beautiful. There is a harmonious balance between the musical instruments as their individual sounds do not overpower each other. This is a statement song that perfectly captures the theme and identity of Bryant's album. The music that is versatile, thrilling, and captivating.

Bryant is an emerging artist who has created an album that is upbeat, explosive, and has a lot of flavors, providing a unique experience to its listeners. It's a great start to his young career, and most likely he will be in the industry for a long time.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
