Album Notes
From putting down his own words and sounds to developing other artists, Dar’rell Green represents the best of what is music and the music business. The smooth, strong sounds of his art embody not only his presence in this business but also in life.

Growing up in Indianapolis in a family with deep roots in the south – his father from New Orleans and his mother from Jackson, Mississippi – Dar’rell’s early sounds on the saxophone reflected those southern musical traditions and still influence his work. But growing up in the 1970’s in a house with a bass-guitar-playing-funk-master for a brother and a sister who played Classical piano, Dar’rell’s style soon integrated those musically diverse dimensions as well. Dar’rell’s older brother had an old school, R&B, funk band with a strong horn section. When Dar’rell was just little guy of 10 years old, he was invited to sit in and practice with them. By 14, Dar’rell grew a mustache, wore a hat and disguised himself with his dress, and started performing with the band at shows and clubs. Instructed not to speak but to just play his sax, that’s what he did.

By the age of 20, Dar’rell was in Dallas playing all the clubs. Returning to Indianapolis, Dar’rell got involved with a group called Double Vision which resulted in his first CD project, then a second on his own. His fourth and current CD – Marinate the Groove – was preceded by a “best of” CD. Marinate the Groove is like a good family BBQ – lots of ingredients and lots of love.

Ever faithful on this musical path, Dar’rell consistently performs across the county – opening for the Michigan Jazz Festival with headliner Ramsey Lewis and opening for Kim Waters – has written music for several short films with an independent production house, and produces music. Between mentoring his exceptionally talented son – helping him develop as a musician and a young man – and guiding new artists, Dar’rell continues to invest in the future of this business and the people who love it.

Outstanding R&B/Jazz Music

Diane and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team
The exceptionally talented artist, Dar’rell Green, releases an outstanding CD, “Marinate the Groove,” that is comprised of well crafted R&B/Jazz songs. You will hear Green’s fantastic efforts on the sax as he performs with a rich, strong, and polished style. This album not only features some excellent sax instrumentals but mixes it up with a few songs that have some wonderful vocals. The song, “Closer 2 U,” moves with a soulful and melodic flair as Green plays his sax with a rich musical tonality. A special treat on this album is the song, “Sunday Drive,” as it features superb female vocals that let Green embellish this song with some wonderful expressive riffs. The title track, “Marinate the Groove,” is fashioned with a slow and grooving Hip Hop style as the deep and velvety vocals impresses with its easy flowing rhymes. Fans of Contemporary R&B/Jazz music will thoroughly enjoy the exquisite collection of songs this album, “Marinate the Groove,” has to offer.
