Soul Cycle brings an infectious blend of jazz, funk, and world music to Mosaic, their eagerly awaited third release. Featuring guest vocals from Rogiérs (Alicia Keys, Platinum Pied Pipers), as well as the core lineup of keyboardist Jesse Fischer (Laura Izibor), saxophonist Brian Hogans (Sean Jones), bassist Josh David (Q-Tip), drummer Corey Rawls (Kenny Garrett), and percussionist Shawn Banks, Mosaic presents seven fresh compositions by bandmembers, as well as captivating renditions of the jazz standard “Blue in Green” and Al Green’s classic “Simply Beautiful.”

“Soul Cycle is a group of talented and eclectic musicians who know how to think outside of the box. The integrity and honesty of the music is always of the utmost importance.” ” Onaje Allan Gumbs, veteran jazz pianist and composer

“Very refreshing and innovative look at urban grooves steeped in fusion jazz” ” Ronald Jackson, JazzReview.com

“Hard-hitting jazz with a twist of funk... Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters with a modern feel.” ” Brandon Pope, 4DaSoul.com

“One of the hippest contemporary soul combos we’ve ever heard... with a sensibility that almost takes us back to the most soulful fusion of Prestige and Fantasy Records in the mid 70s, but with a slightly more contemporary feel overall.” ” DustyGroove.com

“Only a month into 2008, Urban Organics may be the year’s first must-have project. Every song is excellent and the production is astonishing... Highly recommended.” ” Christopher Whaley, SoulTracks.com

“Well-played ass-shaking, toe-tapping, groove-inducing music which is equally appropriate on a jazz or rock show. Play!” ” Emanuel Ferritis, WPRB-FM
