Beyond Words – Volume Three – Jazz Instrumentals
is the third in LocoBop’s series of instrumental music performed by some of the greatest musicians of the respective art forms featured in the series. In this case, the art form is Jazz!

Group DeVille - Carson Whitsett (organ), Jack Bruno (drums), Bill Cooley (guitar), and Scott Chambers (bass) – conjure up 007 as they perform the title track  from their LocoBop album The Bond. ● Memphis headliners Tom Lonardo (drums), Jim Spake (sax), and bassist Tim Goodwin are The Uptown Allstars, a trio also known as the Boyfriends when backing Memphis blues/piano legend Di Anne Price. They give us one of the best versions ever of Louis Prima’s “Sing Sing Sing”. When talking about vintage jazz credits, they don’t get much better than those of guitarist Wayne Boyd, who played with organ legend Jimmy McGriff for thirty years. Here Wayne contributes two outstanding tracks (“Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself” and “People Get ready”), from The New Orleans Sessions (Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop). ● Tenor sax maestro Chucky C. shines on the flute here, rendering a superb version of “Moon Dance” from the Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop album From New Orleans to the World. Japanese prodigy Makoto Kuriya is a highly successful composer, producer, and recording artist. “New Introduction” is from his first album, Always Your Friend (LocoBop). ● B-3 organ master Carson Whitsett’s “D-Tonal brings a little gritty funk from his LocoBop album Organic. ● Trombonist Eddie Boh Paris belongs to a younger generation of New Orleans jazz musicians, influenced by hometown tradition, as well as modern jazz and bebop. Eddie shows a sophisticated cool on both “Blue Bossa” and “Milestones” from his eponymous album on Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop. ● New Orleans native Selwyn Cooper shows his jazz chops on the self-penned “Europa” from the album Louisiana Swamp Blues (Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop).
