Renowned composer/arranger Richard Niles (Paul McCartney, Pat Metheny, Randy Brecker, Ray Charles) has led his infamous jazz orchestra, Bandzilla, since 1987, and released many acclaimed albums as a guitarist. His new album Niles Smiles is a groove-driven, infectiously funky expression of Niles’ trademark imagination and humor, a unique blend of dazzling brass, a killer rhythm section and supersonic multi-tracked vocals. Pat Metheny called him “one of the best composer/arrangers and a truly exciting musical force.” “NILES SMILES is insane – part Brecker Brothers, part Manhattan Transfer, with a little Steely Dan thrown in! Seriously hip!” Grammy Winner, Dave Koz
