New release features legendary funk and jazz sax player Jacque Harenberg
Online PR News – 28-April-2019 – Dayton, Ohio – Midwest bassist, guitarist, session artist and performer Jay D Luis joins forces with legendary funk and jazz sax player Jacque Harenberg to release his latest album "Musical Density." For two musicians, Jay and Jacque create a lot of music in this 3-song CD, weaving a wide range of world music, genres, rhythms and melodies.
"I've been wanting to create an acoustic guitar-based album with saxophone for a long time," says Jay D Luis. "I met Jacque a number of years back in a studio session and we discussed the idea of collaborating on a project one day. I originally composed the rhythmic ideas and movements for the songs on Musical Density and soon realized I needed saxophone as the melodic voice to the music. The rest is history. My collaboration with Jacque created a fusion of smooth jazz, gypsy jazz, flamenco, blues, progressive rock, funk and world music. I hope you enjoy this CD and the Musical Density experience."
