A Dream Come True Hi Everyone. I want to thank you for visiting the website and checking out my Contemporary Jazz and Latin music project – “Dreams To Reality.” It is the result of a very personal journey and a dream come true. For many years, I carried the inner desire to create music that would represent what was playing in my head, although I was never able to fully document or express that music until this CD. So as a result of many pieces of the puzzle falling into place along with several miracles, I am happy to present to you, the listener, my CD of original compositions. The Early Years These songs represent glimpses into my past and are the cumulative effect of the music I heard early on in my life

THREE WISE MONKEYS

A WORD FROM THE WISE... Ten years in and still chasing that “sound”. That elusive gold that floats in the ether, waiting for that moment when the alchemist can summon the mystic power of creativity and shape the vibrations into form. Our latest interpretation of the grand intelligence into a musical unified theory is manifested on the ISOLATION EP. Recorded pristinely in isolation at 196kHz on a state of the art AVID desk. The transparent production bathes the listener in the frequency, capturing instinct vs intelligence. An elegant document tracing the endeavour and the pursuit of that elusive “sound”. Kypo, Alex & Brendon

Velocity

Velocity is a quartet based out of Tacoma, Washington that siphons off of a variety of musical styles including jazz, funk and fusion. The music combines hard-hitting grooves and hook melodies with open improvisation. The energetic original compositions are largely written by keyboardist Peter Adams, and arranged by Peter Adams and Brian Smith. Common time is uncommon with Velocity. Melodies are twisted and warped around each other. Solos are aggressive, yet bind the compositions to a set of defined rules and formulas. The sounds that you expect are not the sounds you get. And that’s just the way we like it. Peter Adams / Keyboard Cliff Colón / Saxophone Brian Smith / Drums Rob Hutchinson / Bass

The Beat Freaks

It was at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries that the first mentions of the „Difference Engine” - the progenitor of today's computers - appeared. No one had thought then that almost 200 years later it would fascinate four young artists from Szczecin (Poland), who would draw inspiration from the rich current of Steampunk culture.  Progressive visions straight from the era of steam engine and engineering development combined with musical sensitivity and lyricism create a mixture as surprising as it is thrilling. The rhythm that is the basis of existence and progress has become the starting point for the world of melodious stories and unbridled improvisations, to which the musicians of The Beat Freaks invite. The band was formed in 2014

Scott Detweiler

Scott Detweiler is an American artist, born and raised in the Uptown neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Over the course of his 30 (thirty) year career, his catalog of albums has chronicled his evolution into a highly unique composer/performer, blending the styles of funk, jazz, blues, gospel & soul. His lyrics tell imaginatively woven stories that follow in the grand tradition of southern writers and classic lyricists. He is a true son of the rich musical climate and one-of-a-kind culture that is the Crescent City. It is these influences that are in the soul of his creations and evident in his live performances, whether solo, in chamber group or backed by his New Orleans Jazz Funksemble. Detweiler is a charismatic entertainer with a unique ability to touch his audience, whether it be in the intimate setting of a small jazz club, through the lens of a camera or on the concert stage of an arena

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
