What do Michael Lington, Fleetwood Mac, Santana and The Grateful Dead have in common? The answer is mega-Platinum producer, Keith Olsen.

Keith has produced three tracks for the new Michael Lington release, Heat, on nuGroove Records. Keith has produced over 120 albums and more than one in four are gold, platinum, or multi-platinum sellers. Sales of these smash hits exceed 110 million units at retail, equaling more than a billion dollars in revenue!

Danish born saxophonist Michael Lington has demonstrated his contemporary saxophone chops with a steady stream of chart-toppers since his debut album in 1997. Soon after relocating to the US, Lington began playing with greats Little Richard, Randy Crawford & Bobby Caldwell and eventually segued into a distinguished recording career of his own. Five albums & 10 R&R hits later, Lington is a global touring force, most recently performing as part of the sold out, coast to coast Barry Manilow tour. “Michael Lington is one hell of a sax player! He absolutely brought down the house every night on my arena tour," said Barry Manilow.

“With his ultra-sleek look, hip, edgy “now" attitude and charm and charisma to burn, Michael Lington has defined the contemporary urban jazz experience Beyond his trademark mix of cool and explosive instrumentals, the Copenhagen native is crossing over into the mainstream pop/adult contemporary realm with two key vocal collaborations [Aaron Neville and Ace Young]" - Jonathan Widran, SmoothJazzMonthly.com

Michael Lington News:

Michael and Ace Young (American Idol) recently helped the Muscular Dystrophy Association raise a record $65 million dollars on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon over Labor Day with a stellar performance of “Baker Street" from the Heat album. Shortly after the performance, Jerry Lewis said, “"Beautiful music, great talent...and we're lucky we got them tonight. Beautiful Michael!"

Michael will continue to be on a nationwide tour to support Heat into the fourth quarter.

Michael's new album on nuGroove entitled Heat, features performances by such mega stars as Aaron Neville, Ace Young (American Idol) and Torcuato Mariano, and will take Lington to new heights!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
