The Yellow
Jackets, no doubt is among the best in making good music. And one of the
reasons for their tremendous success, is none other than legendary
bassist Jimmy Haslip.

Jimmy
releases his latest musical masterpiece NIGHTFALL. Collaborating with
the very talented Joe Vannelli, the artist hits another one straight out
of the park.    

The NIGHTFALL project is a treasured keepsake for your jazz collection. 

Having
written all compositions, Jimmy was enthusiastic on how the project had
gone from conception to maturity. When asked about working with Joe, he
stated, “working with Joe was absolutely a blast having known him since
1978.”

NIGHTFALL
delivers plenty of sunlight to warm the soul of any contemporary, modern
jazz, or Latin jazz enthusiast. Even though Jimmy would be well versed
in many styles of music- Rock R&B, Blues, and Jazz, it is
understandable how he has somewhat made Latin music a cornerstone of
many original compositions he composes today.

The first
track from NIGHTFALL “Empath,” opens with a powerful melody played by
Haslip and combines some shakers and solid sounds that would possess
anyone to move to its pulsating beats.

NIGHFALL
itself has the fingerprint of true romance. So, be-it sitting on the
sofa relaxing,  sipping tea,  or cruising along the highway with the top
dropped, this fine collection of works is without a doubt a winner.

Rich with
all vital ingredients, this CD has made a statement and rightfully so. 
If you haven’t already run out and grabbed it off the shelf, it would be
a wise decision to add this to your list of fine arts.The CD touches on
all aspects of composition, style and performance. Jimmy Haslip, whom
we’ll call the musical chef,  has seasoned this one just right! Bon
appetite!
