Product Description

Turn It Up ; is a collection of uptempo, high-energy instrumental songs produced by Nate Harasim, Landa Gherrá, and Vandell Andrew. For so long, smooth jazz has been labeled elevator music, music that is heard in every grocery store or dentist office. Turn It Up is a unique body of work that is meant to break all barriers of instrumental music. Forget being in the background, this music needs to be heard loud and clear! Now let's TURN IT UP!

Review

Raised in New Orleans and now based in Texas, sax-man Vandell Andrew first burst onto the smooth jazz scene in 2011 with his debut CD Years Later . This collection of all original music quickly grabbed the attention of those in the know and now he is back with the superb five-track EP, Turn It Up . Notable for its consistently accessible groove, Turn It Up also features three colossal collaborations with none other than Nate Harasim who as producer, co-writer and performer works his magic to sensational effect. This is particularly so with the zesty title cut that has everything required to be a radio smash and, whereas the mid-tempo Driven shows off a more thoughtful side of Vandell s musical persona, the opening Let s Ride has that edgy streetwise quality which is the hallmark of the very best in urban jazz. Landa Gherrá produces the two remaining tunes, both Vandell Andrew originals, and with the foot tapping vibe of On The Go checking all the right boxes it quickly establishes itself as being right up there with the best that Turn It Up has to offer. Yet, Just Dance (with the ability to make you do just that) is every bit as good and the fifth fabulous reason why you should add Turn It Up to your new music must haves for 2014. -Denis Poole --Smooth Jazz Therapy

In the mood for some movin , shakin I-like-that kind of smooth jazz? Saxophonist Vandell Andrew has it all right here for you in a neat little 5-track EP called Turn It Up EP. The grooves are Vandell Andrew CDcontagious, fluid, and melodic with great hooks. Having only 5 tracks, you are most likely inclined to mutter: Well, they should all be good. They are. Oh, they are. Andrew put as much muscle and character into these 5 tunes as one could put into 12. Maybe more. Needing no lengthy and flashy intro sound effects, this solid project leads off with the pumpin Let s Ride and doesn t stop that ride until it grinds to a halt after the last note of the last track the title track, by the way. Producer/keyboardist (and everything in between) Nate Harasim works with Andrew on three of the five tracks, co-writing and co-producing them, and his fingerprints are all over them. Make no mistake; this is get-your-groove-on dance music...with style and class. There is little time or room for sitting and simply listening. Don t worry, the vibe is very easy to absorb from the dance floor. Not a note of what Andrew offers will be missed while you re grooving on that floor because I guarantee that you will be listening. With hooks, rhythm, and energy like this, how could you not be listening? True, five tracks of this kind of energy and momentum may feel a little insufficient because you re still wound up after the album s finished, but you have to be very grateful for the groove that the saxman lays out there for that short time in musical bliss. Call it your 19-minute workout. Call it your momentary escape from your troubles. Call it what you want. What you won t call it is boring and uninspiring. Ronald Jackson --The Smooth Jazz Ride

Format: MP3 Music
A good high energy / up tempo jazz sax by Vandell. Also good rev - up high speed intro .It helps the iistener grasp an idea of where he's going from that part of the song.The supporting group's hand clapping /finger snapping technique times things up and makes the work even more enjoyable.
