Editorial Reviews

With the release of Slam Dunk, Gerald Albright continues his reign supreme as the genre's most compelling and consistent artist. Fans will hear his searing and soulful sax lines on this twelve-track recording. And, they'll be in for a surprise, as Albright shows off his chops as a bassist, along with his ebullient tenor, baritone and soprano saxophone arrangements on his own compositions, and his super covers of classics by Phil Collins and James Brown, with special guest vocalist Peabo Bryson.

"This record is synonymous with my previous records, in that it has the direct influence of James Brown, the Philly International sound, and the Motown sound, Albright says. But what we wanted to do on this record was to take those instruments that are normally in the background bass, flute and horns and bring them up front. In terms of being a bassist, I was inspired by Louis Johnson [of the Brothers Johnson] back in college. A lot of people don t know that I play bass, flute and some of the other instruments...so we decided to make it - no pun intended - a slam dunk project, and bring all of those elements to the forefront."

Recorded in Denver, Colorado and Wallingford, Connecticut (hometown of co-producer/co-writer/keyboardist Chris "Big Dog" Davis), Albright is also supported on this CD by drummer Jerohn Garnett, guitarist Rick Watford, and his daughter, Selina Albright, on vocals.

The tunes are SLAM DUNK!! indeed. Gerald Albright creative and production prowess never cease to excite. On this album , he showed his dexterity on the Bass guitar while I love his tribute to the late George Duke. Great album, I love it!

This CD is one of the best CD's I've heard in a long time. This is a Man's World has to be the best jazz rendition I've ever heard. Every track is soo damn good. When music is great you simply smile while listening to it. I smiled through the entire CD. Get your jazz smile on too!!!
You will be totally satisfied!

Another good CD from Gerald Albright. This CD is a bit more relaxed than some of his previous efforts. If you are used to his more up tempo music, this may not be your cup of tea.

This has to be one of the better CD's that Mr Albright has put out in the past several years. I have been a fan of his since Bermuda Nights and this one is right up there with that one. A great CD.
