Atlanta / LaGrange Georgia Cooper Tisdale & Friends Live in Atlanta (JAM-0627-CD) will hit the retail racks and digital download sites over the coming days and weeks. Tisdale’s third project delivers a stellar live set of contemporary rock/jazz fusion. Cooper offers up all original material chocked full of thoughtful melodies and a powerful performance by his bandmates. In addition to Cooper Tisdale on guitar and select vocal tracks, this line-up of & Friends features David Savage (keys), Joe Reda (bass), Jason LaMarca (drums) and Juan Bonini (percussion) with guest appearances by Michael Merideth (vocal) and Rafael Pereira (pandeiro).
"We are very excited to be working with Cooper", comments Pat Patten, Jammates Managing Partner. "Paul [Hammock], Coe [Cloud] and I first heard him about a year ago and were knocked out with his memorable guitar playing. But more importantly, as we’ve gotten to know him, he continues to impress us with his no-compromise, professional approach to everything that he does."
"I think it’s the right time to do a live project", adds Tisdale, "I had been laying low from performing with an original band, but when this opportunity presented itself, it seemed like a good fit. It was exciting to offer up a fresh perspective on some of my original tunes from the two previous studio recordings, plus I was able to present a few new ones too. Over the coming months I’ll continue playing with old and new friends throughout the southeast to support the record."
Patten adds, "We look forward to continuing our work together as we rollout Cooper Tisdale & Friends Live in Atlanta. We’ll globally promote the record via MySpace, a RadioDirectX radio rollout, through the IODA/Jammates worldwide digital distribution network and niche retail sectors like AbstractLogix.com and HittinTheNote.com."
