Lou Marini
On March 23, 2010, “The Blue Lou and Misha Project - Highly Classified" was released by saxophonist Lou Marini and pianist / composer Misha Segal. The CD was recorded in Los Angeles, California and in New York City. This CD is the first collaborative recording by Marini and Segal.

Lou Marini is best known as a member of several noted bands, including Blood, Sweat and Tears, Steely Dan, the Woody Herman Orchestra, the Buddy Rich Band, The Maureen McGovern Band, the James Taylor Band, the Saturday Night Live Band and the Blues Brothers Band. Misha Segal is a well known Emmy Award winning Israeli keyboardist, arranger and composer with over a hundred film scores to his credit. Segal worked as a producer with Luther Vandross early in Vandross' career.

The album was produced by Misha Segal and Lou Marini, and co-produced by John Tropea. California based composer and producer Gary Michaels served as executive producer for the project.

All of the arrangements on this CD were written by Misha Segal and Lou Marini, and all the compositions are original, except for one cut. Stylistically, this album mixes many diverse influences, including contemporary jazz, fusion, rock, straight-ahead jazz, rap and hip-hop.

The musicians on the CD include such notables as bassist Will Lee (The Brecker Brothers and David Letterman Show), percussionist Luis Conte (James Taylor Band), guitarist John Tropea (Deodato and The Blues Brothers) and L A session bassist Neil Stubenhaus.

This is one of the coolest contemporary jazz CDs in recent years!
