Elliott Caine has this to say about his new CD Blues from Mars, that will be released on June 27th.
I feel it is our best release yet. It consists of 9 original compositions and one standard, I Thought About You"."Besides myself on trumpet and flugelhorn, I feel blessed to have recorded with some true artists: Carl Randall on tenor sax, John Rangel on piano, Bill Markus on bass, Kenny Elliott on drums. We were supplemented on certain tracks with the great talents of Justo Almario on tenor sax, Mike Rose on bari sax, Munyungo Jackson, Inocente Alvarez, Cayito Dearborn on percussion, DJ Bonebrake on vibes, and Probyn Gregory on theremin.
These musicians have played and or recorded extensively with Freddie Hubbard, Natalie Cole, Miles Davis, Lou Rawls, Orquesta Aragon, Brian Wilson, X, et al., and most of them will be performing at the Bakery for the CD release party."
Please join us for a memorable musical experience and a great party!
