BLAKE AARON Soul Stories Heading full-­throttle into his second decade as a recording artist and his seventh year as host of the popular syndicated “Blake Aaron Live w Tina Anderson,” the multi-­faceted guitarist, composer, producer and media personality – now releasing his highly anticipated 4th full length CD, and his first completely self-­produced solo project – has a lot of fresh and dynamic musical Soul Stories to tell. Once again drawing on a lifetime of diverse musical influences to create a masterful fusion of jazz, R&B, soul, rock, blues and Latin sounds, the Southern California based Aaron creates his most expansive, fully expressive collection yet, artfully alternating his lead voice between three of his favorite guitars: the D’Angelico hollow body, the Fender Stratocaster and the Cordoba Nylon string. His special guests, saxophonist/flutist Najee, vocalist Spencer Day, and vocalist Derek Bordeaux, are among the hundreds of guests that have appeared with Aaron and his co-­host Tina Anderson on his live music radio show. “The diversity on Soul Stories and previous albums comes from the fact that I’ve always played all kinds of different music throughout my life,” says Aaron, a veteran studio and touring sideman and TV/film score performer who released his debut album With Every Touch in 2001. “People are most familiar to me now as a contemporary jazz artist, but I’ve been in all kinds of different bands playing rock, funk, R&B and straight ahead jazz

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
