R&B Strings: Soulful Grooves
An album that was long in the making, The Braxton Brothers True Love album, released appropriately on Valentine’s Day, featured the Christian Howes string recording team heavily.
Says Christian: “I am always psyched whenever we can lay down strings on tracks that groove and go into an R&B vibe. The Braxton Brothers gave us plenty of room on this project to be creative. It’s a great addition to our portfolio for any prospective clients who might be considering going in this direction with their projects.”
Here is a compilation of some of the highlights of our performance on the album. Click here to listen:
From the True Love press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Braxton Brothers Bring Love into View with TRUE LOVE, just in times for Valentines Day
New album after 9 years features three radio-ready hits!
People have talked…
Session string recording isn’t usually this much fun…
It has been said of the Braxton Brothers that they “compose some of the most in-the-pocket smooth jazz melodies around…” Another praised “their ‘twin ESP’ and funky improvisations…”
What will you say?
The acclaimed jazz twins, Wayne and Nelson Braxton, a.k.a. the Braxton Brothers, are poised to release their latest collection of jazz, funk fusion in an album that celebrates the art and mysteries of love.
After nearly a decade, the twin princes of Jazz take audiences on a melodic trip through the layers of love. Where have they been all of this time? Says Wayne, “In the last 9 years, I’ve grown spiritually, musically and professionally. That growth has given me an understanding of my God-given purpose in life, which is making music that help people realize their own purpose.” Nelson says, “In the past nine years I’ve been around the world several times, learned to play the upright bass, played music with some great artists, moved to England, started a family, and learned many important lessons that are reflected in this music.”
The other thing that the Braxtons have done is bear witness to the electronic transformation of the music industry. Since their days as Windham Hill and Peak Records recording artists, the brothers have witnessed the power of going “viral,” which has become a daily occurrence with exciting projects that capture the imagination of the masses. The Braxtons, who are well equipped with a slew of online music outlets, are sure to reach and wow the music buying public that resides in cyberspace. Additionally, the Brothers are allowing the album to be streamed in its entirety on their SoundCloud.com page and will be posting video to YouTube.com describing the meaning behind each track, including standouts, Know You Better, True Love and Never Take Your Love Away.
