Bob Funk, Uptown Horns trombonist and producer, is proud to announce Jazz My Soul by The Jazz Explorers, released by Rhythm Dynamics.

This extraordinary project features great performances by a unique gathering of jazz legends, including George Cables, Dave Liebman, Carmen Lundy, Billy Hart, Sonny Fortune, Victor Lewis and Cecil McBee and a strong supporting cast.

The Jazz Explorers collective workshop performing the soulful original music of composer and band leader Tim Duffy move contemporary mainstream jazz forward with power and subtlety.

Produced by Bob Funk and Tim Duffy, Jazz My Soul features two shimmering vocals, “We're Only Human" and “Autumn", both with deep under currents, exquisitely interpreted by the great Carmen Lundy.

The instrumental tracks of Jazz My Soul convey a broad range of emotions from the hard driving post-bop “International Ballistic Soul Kiss" with a burning solo by Dave Liebman to the profound piano of George Cables on “Our Father", “Mystique" and “Moroccan" culminating with the heartfelt tribute, “In Memorium, Elvin Jones" delivered by former band mate, Sonny Fortune.

From atmospheric to inspiring, Jazz My Soul is the real deal.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
