Back in the Day

by Bobby Wells

Smooth, like a great cup of Java, yet exhilarating, foot tapping, neck will remain in a groove-lockdown-motion. Bobby's best CD ever and it features Grammy Nominated artist you'll know. An instrumental record with vocals makes it a superb blend. Enjoy

Album Notes
The beautiful thing about being a songwriter is that the canvas is ready for whatever sounds, instruments or melodies that pop in my head. For instance, the melody for “My Sweet Butterfly” came while I was painting a wall in our home. I don’t know why I thought that was important to say, but…there you have it. I would surely love to go into detail about how I came up with each of these songs but I’d have to make the font type smaller. Most song melodies just come. So, with that said, all songs on this CD were written and sounds performed by Bobby Wells (BW or B-Dub) except for some instruments listed below:

She's Playful: BW, Michael O'Neill - guitars, BW-vox
End Of Summer: BW, Darren Rahn-sax, Dr. Isidro Aybar Jr.-guitar
Back In The Day: BW, Yvonne Brown-Asian style hum.
Tee It Up: BW, Gerald Albright-bass guitar
Count It All Joy: BW, Yvonne Brown & BW vox
My Sweet Butterfly: BW, Bob Rebholz-flutes, Michael O'Neill-guitars, BW & Yvonne vox
Bella's Pier: BW, Gerald Albright-lead bass guitar, BW-bottom bass
Oooh Baby: BW, Freddie Fox-guitars, Brandy & Bobby-vox
Deep Blue: BW, Humpback Whale-himself
End Of Summer (Reprise) Dr. Isidro Aybar Jr. guitar, BW all other sounds
Vantage point: BW

I’m accompanied by some of the most amazing National/International Grammy Nominated artist and musicians. Feel free to visit their Homepage’s for a lot more information. The “Back In The Day” recording project is smooth, yet exhilarating, foot tapping, neck will remain in a groove-lockdown-motion whether your coming or going.

I’m a “giggler” so allow me to define in my own way: Whenever someone plays an instrument and kills it…I giggle. And I can assure you that there was a lot of giggling going on while producing this project. My man guitarist/composer Michael O’Neill, most of you have heard him with George Benson, the (late) Natalie Cole and countless others. Michael is an amazing artist/writer and producer himself, do check out his music. He always knows just what a song needs. He played on my “Bayside” CD and I couldn't imagine doing another project without him. Incomparable in his guitar stylings and imagination, he drops a pocket of bass & solo guitar as he turns up the heat on “She’s Playful, Bella's Pier and My Sweet Butterfly." Well done Mike.

Gerald Albright (I call him G.)…doesn’t just play sax, he knows his way around a bass. He’s playing lead bass on “Bella’s Pier” and bottom on “Tee It Up” (yep, we love golf). G. is Internationally renowned, he has numerous #1 Hits, TV appearances and is a Grammy Nominated Artist many times for his great music and sax playing. His credits go way beyond what I could list here. Thanks G. for kickin the bass man…awesome!

My good friend and gifted guitarist Dr. Isidro Aybar Jr., played on my first CD on a song titled “Sailing.” After cutting a beautiful and amazing solo on “End Of Summer” Isidro began playing a light rendition of the song, I loved it, so it became the reprise. Also featured on this track, playing sax is Producer/Songwriter Darren Rahn whom I have known for many years and have had the pleasure of working on my “Pastel Horizon and Bayside” CD projects. He has numerous #1 Radio Hits to his credit. Darren’s ear is impeccable and I appreciated the fine job he did in mastering this project. Thanks Bro.

Flautist/Saxophonist Bob Rebholz is one of America’s gems. I love working with Bob, he and I worked together on my very first album titled “Wait A Minute.” I’m glad to have him on “My Sweet Butterfly.” playing flute. This is a funny guy!

Freddie Fox joinied me on “Oooh Baby.” Its a great pleasure working with this guitar-smith. You’ll hear Freddie on a lot of Grammy awarded songs by other artist and I’m also glad to be contributing a few tunes to his up and coming new CD Project. Brandy (contributes some background vocals on “Oooh Baby”) she's my little sweetheart (daughter). Her voice is like a Meadow Lark singing in the sunshine. She loves singing background the most. I remember many days, driving in the van, I’d have the kids do vocal runs, hit high notes and go “down in the basement.” that’s the low notes ya’ll, and Brandy would hang on.

My sista Yvonne Brown, we’ve worked together many, many years and it’s always my pleasure working with her…ask her to sing Amazing Grace and you’ll see what I mean. She’s singing on “Count It All Joy.”

To my listeners, I hope this record brings you lots of joy, happiness, reflection, relaxation and highway cruising time when and wherever you play it. Thanks so much for your support!!!

May God bless you all.

SmoothJazz.com Review
A mainstay on the Colorado contemporary jazz scene since the 90’s, critically acclaimed producer, songwriter and keyboardist Bobby Wells creates the ultimate, urban-flavored jazzy experience. He balances the super-melodic, smooth and swaying vibes on his latest project BACK IN THE DAY with exhilarating, toe tapping groove lockdowns. Working with guest guitarists, Michael O’Neill and Freddie Fox and sax greats Gerald Albright and Darren Rahn, Wells mixes his ‘in the pocket’ Smooth Jazz with Gospel, tropical spices, and keeping true to its title, the feel good kind of R&B that we loved BACK IN THE DAY! ~ Jonathan Widran
