Album Notes
Raised in the city that created Go-Go music, Washington, DC, Strong undoubtedly carries an affinity for dance music of all disciplines. Many of his influences can be heard on his debut album Love-Strong, set to be released at the top of the year. Love-Strong is a "feel good" record for people who just like to feel good. This album traverses through various moods and colors of
Strong's life experiences and is sure to capture the ear of unassuming listeners who may not usually listen to what is commonly called, jazz music. The listener who is well adept to improvisation and the blues will certainly be in for a treat as well, as they will find quite a few moments when the musicians on this album tell stories of struggle, triumph, mystery, and LOVE. This body of work has been several years in the making, as Strong balances his adjunct teaching responsibilities at North Carolina Central University, as well as festivals, shows, and summer jazz camps with his non-profit organization, The Art of Cool Project.
The goal for creating an album such as Love-Strong is to positively contribute to the body of work that already exist in the realm of music by so many other well-versed and well-traveled artists. These artists have paved the way for him and many others, believing in their musical connection with the creator and mankind. In addition to having the pleasure of performing for artists such as Branford Marsalis and Aretha Franklin, you can hear Al Strong's sound on a number of other projects available for distribution. These artists include Yazarah, Soul Understated featuring Mavis "Swan" Poole, and The Foreign Exchange.
