Following the stellar 2006 release of Window Shopping that hit the charts with a vengeance, Jack Prybylski is back with a sound that is sweeter than ever.

Jack has teamed up with the masters of the beat, Four80East, to produce a sexy musical dessert that is destined to be a favorite on your groove jazz menu. Set your volume to funk and hold on tight. This is going to be a wild ride.

“Ice Cream" is the first single from Prybylski's upcoming CD to be released later this year and is currently the #1 most added on the Groove Jazz charts in its first week. When asked how he chose “Ice Cream" for his single release and how he came to hook up with Four 80 East, Prybylski said, “Ice Cream was written by my friend Steve Dixon, who initially pitched the song to Najee. Lucky for me he passed on it. After hearing their En Route CD and finding out that they were from Toronto (which is only an hour and a half away) I became a fan of Four80East. I was really impressed by the sonic quality of their recordings and felt that they were taking contemporary jazz in a new and exciting direction. It's been a fantastic experience getting to know & working with Rob & Tony. I'm very exciting about completing the CD with them," said Prybylski.

Jack Prybylski is endorsed by Yamaha, Rico Reeds, Applied Microphone Technologies and Theo Wanne Mouthpieces.

More about the artist:
Over the years Jack has been fortunate enough to further study saxophone with renowned jazz players David Leibman, Tim Price, David Schaivone and, former Buffalo Philharmonic bass clarinetist/saxophonist Edward Yadzinski.

As a recording artist, he has released seven albums with Buffalo-based eclectic jazz group Them Jazzbeards, including the soundtrack for the motion picture Shadow Creature. As a performer, Jack has shared the stage with many of the top names in contemporary jazz including Richard Elliott, David Sanborn, The Rippingtons, and Spyro Gyra, and has performed with the prestigious Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Jack is an eight-time recipient of the Buffalo Music Awards top saxophonist award.

In 2001, Jack released his solo debut Soho Strut, which produced the Internet radio single Mandalay Bay. Smoothjazz.com President Sandy Shore hailed the CD as “Filling in the cracks between modern jazz and Smooth Jazz... Soho Strut is packed full with great compositions, sophisticated arrangements, creative improvisation, and stellar musicianship.

Window Shopping, released in early 2006, employed the talents of acclaimed contemporary jazz guitarist and producer Ken Navarro. A mutual friend was responsible for the creative pairing when she suggested Ken contact Jack for some ideas on Internet radio resources. A longtime admirer of Kens work, Jack was thrilled. The two had a real connection right away, and as Jack was beginning preliminary work on Window Shopping, he asked if Ken might be interested in contributing a song or making an appearance on the album. Ken was more than interested, and in addition to producing the CD, he provided all the guitar tracks as well as an original composition entitled “Bright Spot". It was great working with Ken on this project and drawing on his experience not only as a musician and producer, but also as a label owner and an icon in this genre for years, says Jack.

An unpredicted firestorm of accolades followed the release of Window Shopping. A 2006 top ten with Smooth Jazz News, Window Shopping would also find itself a favorite on several other year-end lists and reviewers.
