Gemini Soul will be performing material from their third cyber jazz CD titled, Live : The Liquid Soul Tour," which features the music from their early 2007 release Liquid Soul" and Ajamu Akinyele's critically acclaimed double jazz/fusion CD Black Magic The Cyber Jazz Experience," inspired by Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock.
This isn't your typical jazz, this is Cyber Jazz! Live : The Liquid Soul Tour" captures Gemini Soul over several shows doing what they do best; performing live. Ajamu Akinyele's bass playing is in the style of Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller and Me'Shell Ndegeocello - a sight to be seen. Jon O'Bergh's keyboard stylings capture the elements of 70's funk, reminiscent of Herbie Hancock. Andrew Foster's percussion adds a satin groove, keeping the music smooth and sexy; while Alex Marks' drum stylings take you back to the pop funk fusion of Miles Davis.
Gemini Soul's performances are sexy, exciting and displays musicianship at its best. Their performances are compared to the smooth sounds of Sade, the funk fusion of bassists Marcus Miller and Me'Shell Ndegeocello, the pop/funk/jazz fusion of Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock.
