We do what we do best. What comes without effort and flows naturally. We make great music and eloquently integrate it with technology everyone can enjoy! Our musical and artistic legacy is one of creativity, innovation, and associations with great musicians, vocalists and artists. These associations produced great music and products; it’s time to continue.
Guitarist, Composer and producer JUEWETT BOSTICK proudly presents SHADES OF BLU.
We started with the purity of soulful music, added the rhythm and blues of life, true expressions from our soul to arrive at SHADES OF BLU.
SOB is the natural evolution of multiple converging forces. The times we’re in, the technology at our disposal and a life long associations with dedicated musicians, passionate signers and great artists. It's an innovative new direction in Jazz! The projects genesis is Soul Jazz . This is the time when Jazz musicians were dipping into R&B, but firmly attached to Be Bop. Some artist who made this happen, Art Blakely and The Jazz Messengers, Jimmy Smith, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, Grant Green, Bobby Timmons and Stanley Turrentine. Bostick’s objective was to cleanly integrate the music and the spirit from this era into today’s creative mix.
So, compositions from Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley and Thelonious Monk have been reimagined for the consumer with an appetite for music with depth, passion and creative substance.
Let’s dip deeper into this. On Guitar, through guitar, with guitar you will have to play the blues. On SHADES OF BLU Bostick has done the blues with integrity, with class, keeping its sprit intact. It’s funny, its funky, and its sexy.
One featured track is a brilliant reimagining of an obscure piece from the pen of James Marshall Hendrix. My Friend, the original, is an entertaining, lyrical frolic done in the setting of a bar. It’s reincarnation, for SHADES OF BLU, is true to that spirit but creatively twisted and tweaked to pay respect to its writer, Jimi Hendrix.
Prelude, Main, Aftermath, this is a unique idea and specific to this project. What Bostick did was extract the original ideas integrated into the reimagined works, YAMA, by Lee Morgan and HIGH MODES, by Hank Mobley and construct original pieces. These new pieces are compacted compositions with commercial radio in mind. The three Preludes can be considered the introduction to the main track but customized for commercial consumption. The ‘Main’ is the reimagined version of the original composition that keeps the melody in tact along with Bostick’s harmonic and melodic contributions. The Aftermath is a reflection of the reimagined ‘main’ track but extended to give the musicians and vocalist a blank canvas for creative expression.
SOB features live performances from an exceptional tribe of musicians, vocalists, talented artists creating great art, and design and original multimedia. We proudly present SHADES OF BLU, from JUEWETT BOSTICK.
