Washington, D.C., March 30, 2010--
If you have yet to hear Manhattan Nights, the latest release from the explosively funky-sweet saxophonist Jaared, one taste of his effortless alto, soaring soprano, and haunting tenor will make you want to be the first to grab this awesome CD when it is released on March 30th, 2010. An international entertainer based in Washington, D.C., Jaared has played worldwide at festivals and venues all over Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, the United States, and more.
Manhattan Nights, Jaared’s fourth CD, is packed with 14 songs, each one better than the last. The first single, "Always Together," is a sax and guitar combination that has a happy pop feel. Already receiving regular play on stations worldwide, it is only one of many great tunes that will delight music lovers.
Jaared’s sound is unmistakable and undeniable. A virtuoso musician and an incredibly exciting performer, his heartfelt instrumentation and vocals show a depth and musical understanding that go straight to the heart.
A sophisticated follow up to his Addiction CD, Manhattan Nights was produced by Grammy Award Winner Michael Broening. Although Jaared is mainly an instrumentalist, Michael B. suggested that Jaared cover the Bee Gee’s song "How Deep Is Your Love." The result, showcasing Jaared’s deeply sensual vocals, makes hearts flutter, and shows why Michael B. is a Grammy winner.
Jaared’s control over his instrument’s tone is at a level that few master, but he has not forgotten that, in music, silence is as important as sound. While known for his mind-melting sax solos, Jaared is still a master of the ballad. The stunningly beautiful, "Song for Dianne," a tribute to a friend who died tragically, is getting unexpected attention for the raw emotion of Jaared’s playing.
However, this CD is not just ballads. The distinctly Latin-flavored "No Nachos For Puppies" is a crisp, bouncy tune that will have you humming and wanting to learn the Salsa. "Dancing With You," romantic and filled with sexy energy, brings thoughts of starlight and seaside balconies, island breezes, and being in the arms of someone special.
Jaared’s fans will delight in the upbeat and the funky "Coolsville"; a wonderful counterpoint to the sensual sounds of "Love You All Night Long." It is a rare occurrence in the music world, but every track on Manhattan Nights shows a different aspect of his artistry and the love that he has for his art. It is truly the best work that he has ever done, but this "Work of Heart" cannot be missed. It is the one that you will play over and over. Manhattan Nights will delight his loyal fans, and amaze new fans who will be amazed by this CD.
Jaared will be performing around the world promoting Manhattan Nights. His live performances are an experience and are universally lauded for their energy and beauty. He is true to the music, and always has a surprise or two for his fans. He never fails to bring the crowd to its feet.
