When you have a bass talent like Charles “Chuck” Moorer, you don’t keep it a secret! That might sound a bit corny, but it’s the reason you’re receiving this music from a Gospel artist for a smooth jazz campaign. By teaming up with smooth jazz mainstays Nils on guitar and production, along with Najee doing what he does best on the sax, Chuck sets out to wow audiences and industry folks and expand his reach into new markets for his music, which benefits various charities and food banks he works with as a Pastor in Indiana.
Smooth jazz programmers will light up the minute they hear the instrumental version of “Think of Your Soul,” which begins with a colorful exotic twist, with African tinged vocals, before powering into a funky, freewheeling dance between Chuck’s hard slapping bass and Grammy nominated sax superstar Najee’s dreamy, sensual soprano. The grooving track backs its snappy, hypnotic bass melody with soaring atmospheres shaded with lush sax harmony before getting into a bass/horn conversation that includes a few bars where the instruments blend together effortlessly. Guests also include: Johnny Britt (horns, vocals), Mitchel Foreman (piano), Michael Parlett (flute), Gorden Campbell (drums), Oliver C. Brown (percussion, vocals), and Clydene Jackson (vocals).
