Secret Garden Snippet - Jason Parra - Two Reasons...
Two Reasons, the debut CD from smooth jazz trumpeter Jason Parra and his band the X Factor is one of the freshest new releases you will hear this year and its Boise that they call home and where they often perform.
A talented studio musician and songwriter, Jason has also found time to tour with Natalie Cole, Ray Charles, Arturo Sandoval, Lionel Hampton, The James Brown Band and Gene Harris.The second cut, the tight and funky ‘Agumala' with Parra's classy muted trumpet to the fore, is just as good and ‘Wish You Were Here' is quite simply the best track on the album....
Jason Parra's album Two Reasons has certainly more than just two reasons to buy it.It offers a large range of diverse styles for a broad audience; I know this will make the album tremendously popular.Review by HBH of www.smooth-jazz.de Germany's #1 jazz destination.
