The key attribute of any truly successful artist is the ability to consistently write music of the quality that can shape a career. This doesn’t always come easy but in the case of writer, producer and keyboard player Jonathan Fritzén he makes it appear to be the most natural thing in the world.

His latest album, the delightfully accessible ‘Diamonds’, is a case in point. Released in June 2010, and described as his most personal project yet, he has composed all ten tracks, produced throughout and engaged the services of some really outstanding guest artists. Both Alex Al and Mel Brown contribute on bass while sax duties are shared between Koh (aka Mr. Saxman), the ubiquitous Darren Rahn and rising smooth jazz starlet Jessy J. Indeed her performance on the sultry ‘Fly Away’ is something to savor while a special mention must go to the soul drenched ‘You’ll Be Mine’ where not for the first time vocalist Laila Adéle steals the show. Rahn, who also mixed the album, provides an input to the mid tempo ‘This Way That Way’ which is sure to make it a favorite of the airwaves but that said the first single to be serviced to radio is ‘Dance With Me’. Finding Fritzén at his rhythmic best, the track has powered its way to an extended stay at #1 on the Billboard Charts and in so doing helped ‘Diamonds’ become a #1 smooth jazz best seller on Amazon.com...

Shiny, sexy and captivating… Jonathan Fritzén’s new release DIAMONDS is all that and more! The Swedish writer, producer and keyboardist is already on his third solo release since 2008 and he’s still in his twenties! Jonathan describes DIAMONDS as his most personal project yet… he has composed each track himself and produced the entire release. Like his last album VIP, JF recruited some shining saxophone stars for this one including saxophonists Darren Rahn, Jessy J and Koh Mr. Saxman. In addition, you’ll find a very solid support team with Mel Brown on bass, Lalia Adele on vocals and Alex Crown on guitar. DIAMONDS feels good from the moment you hit play… it’s Smooth Jazz with notes of soul, chill and R&B featuring delectable melodies and sweet keyboard work similar to Bob James and Brian Culbertson. The first single, “Dance With Me” is sure to sashay its way up the charts. Ice yourself with DIAMONDS and enjoy the smooth bling! ~SANDY SHORE
