Album Notes
What do Friends, ER, The West Wing, Girlfriends and Eve have in common? They have all been graced by the sweet sounds of the Cross Hart Jazz Experience. Along with these noted television appearances, this dynamic young ensemble has just been selected to perform at the 2006 Playboy Jazz Festival at The Rose Bowl on May 28th at 3:00p.m.

Cross Hart Jazz Experience is a powerful trio expanded to include some of the hottest jazz vocalists and instrumentalists in the world. The group is led by bassist/composer Ryan Cross and drummer Lorca Hart (son of legendary drummer Billy Hart). Josh Nelson is the resident piano player of the group.

After being the backbone of many bands in Los Angeles such as Larry Nash Jazz Symphonics, Phil Ranelin Tribe Renaissance, and Ralph Moore Quartet, Ryan and Lorca decided to create a group with a fresh approach to jazz music. Cross Hart began to take jazz standards and create high-energy arrangements with swing, hip-hop, Latin, and hybrid grooves. The group utilizes the writing skills of Ryan Cross who composed a score for Crossover, a Showtime movie executive produced by Magic Johnson and Penny Marshall. He has also written and arranged for Greg Porée’s new album Vertical Motion.

Cross Hart performs at The Bel Age Hotel in West Hollywood every Monday night. Over the last year and a half, they have featured some of the most legendary singers and instrumentalists including performances by Stevie Wonder, Billy Childs, Bobby Brown, Spanky Wilson, Wycliffe Gordon, Herman Riley, Maurice Brown and many more.

The Cross Hart Jazz Experience has just finished their first self-titled album with jazz standards and Ryan Cross originals. The CD features two amazing saxophonists: latin jazz legend Justo Almario and fiery Zane Musa. On piano, there are three rising stars: Danny Grissett, Donald Vega and Josh Nelson. The vocalists, Patrice Quinn, Cynthia Felton and Toni Peete, bring a special magic to the album that is sublime.

We invite you to experience the band that James Janise (Program host, KKJZ) says “has created a mood that is all their own.”

The new record by L.A.’s Cross Hart Jazz Experience, though, renders time fram
“Traditional” jazz — ow, what a word. How can younger players pronounce it, with the music needing leafy branches, and too many trees turned to paper? The new record by L.A.’s Cross Hart Jazz Experience, though, renders time frame irrelevant; it’s fresh, whole, satisfying. No surprise: Bassist-composer Ryan Cross studied with Ray Brown; drummer Lorca Hart is the son of Billy Hart (Stan Getz, Charles Lloyd); and they’ve backed local vets such as Larry Nash, Phil Ranelin and Ralph Moore. With Cross’ deep downness applying exquisite tension to the edges of Hart’s beat, the two show a special flair for Latin flavors, tonight augmented by pianist Josh Nelson and vocalist Nayanna Holley. (Guests, too, from Stevie Wonder to Bobby Brown, frequently gatecrash.) At the Bel Age Hotel, 1020 San Vicente Blvd., W. Hlywd.; every Mon., 7 p.m.-mid.; $10 min.

CD Baby

This spicy, thumping jazz combo redefines modern jazz for the spirited listener who doesn't want to sacrifice intelligence and integrity for accessibility and groove. With equal amounts of smarts and personality, color and rhythm, sophistication and spunk, the Cross Hart Jazz Experience is a well-named group: an experience more than a combo.

Gail Y. Cousins

This version of this CD is breathtaking to listen and crisp on the rhythmic beat
I am truly very impressive when I listen to this CD for the first time!! It is so breathtaking and stimulating to listen to when you want to relax and unwind from a busy day or just listen to it all day!!

Big Time Records

Jazz is forever interesting. given that it is played by good muscians. It is a nice change to keep playing this album and find something you hadn't heard before. Keep up the good work guys!

Pamela Burton

Like a breath of fresh air, first class,
This was my first taste of the Cross Hart Experience and what an experience it was, from the start all the way through. The sound was crisp, clear, precise, but full of emotion and drive. It filled the room with feeling. I'd love to experience a live performance.
