Project Grand Slam - The Queens Carnival - Flyah Review




Project Grand Slam is an acclaimed jazz rock fusion band, led by bassist/leader/composer Robert Miller, combining the power and beat of rock with the complexity and improvisation of jazz, with a jam band sensibility. The band plays Robert’s original compositions plus selected unique covers of classic rock songs that Robert has re-imagined

Listening to this album brought me into a very relaxed state.  The perfect blend of instruments makes this one intriguing and it has a impact from the very first song.  I love albums that start off with a bang and the drum roll on Beyond Forever gives me exactly what Im looking for.  The first four bars on this song lets you know that you are definitely in for a nice ride.  This aura fits title perfectly and the guitars shows off the vibrant mood set with ease.  I love the way it reminds of riding with my Uncle Vernon in a old crown Victoria on the way to grandma's.  During these days my uncle would play songs like Green Onions by Booker T and The MGs and its nothing like the good old times. 

On the second song The Rescue, Project Grand Slam brings a more upbeat feel.  Its starts off with some funk guitar riffs and then moves into a jazzy sensation.  The Saxophone player Mario Castro takes the lead and puts you in a dancing groove like no other.  This song also brings back good memories for me.  My Grandfather and Grandmother are still living and was born in the 30's.  I know for sure that if they were to hear this music they will swing the night away.  I really love how Project Grand Slam has a mixture of genres and can transition from one to the other without a problem. 

The Next song You Really Got Me is surely a hit record if you ask me.  The vocals from Lucy Woodward are smooth and Modulated.  Even though this a more jazzy funk song,  listening to this song make me want to hear some of The Roots albums.  The guitar player Yasser Tejeda, plays a vital part in bringing the house down with the screaming strings through out this love ballet.  I really enjoy this album for its substance and consistence.   Im a hip hop artist with a ear for great music and this project  is surely a Grand Slam in my book..  The Cd entitled song The Queen Carnival brings a island feel and gives me chills from the jump.  I feel like I have been invited to a big party where everyones a star.  I love the way they clap all through the song and yell for joy.  

The last song is no slouch either.  Gorrilla has a rock n roll beach boys type thing going on, that makes me want to ride in my car with the sun roof open.  I love the way it breaks down and mellows out mid flight and then cranks right back up for a epic ending.  Over all this album deserves my praise and much more.  If I had to rate this short EP I would give it a 5 out of 5 stars for being so well rounded, fun and entertaining.  I pray this band lives for many years and continue to prosper in a way that would change the world

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
