ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jimi Hazel.Guitarist.Songwriter.Producer.Founding member of the groundbreaking,genre smashing black rock band,24-7 SPYZ.
And now,for the first time,a solo artist!!!But wait-Let's go back a minute-for a brief history lesson.(kinda brief!)
In 1989,a band emerged
out of the South Bronx bringing a new sound that combined
elements of Rock,Funk,Jazz,Reggae and Rap.This would become
the foundation many a band would stand on!!In the process,
they also helped to shatter the stereotypes and dispel the
myth that "Black Bands Don't Rock!!Following in the paths
laid down by Jimi Hendrix,P-Funk,Mandrill,Bad Brains and
countless others,how could they not?????After releasing
six cds:Harder Than You(1989),Gumbo Millennium(1990),This
is 24-7 SPYZ(1991),Strength In Numbers(1992),Temporarily
Disconnected(1994),"6"(1995-European Release)and Heavy
Metal Soul By The Pound(1996-U.S. Release)-much to the dismay of the fans worldwide-they disbanded in 1997.
Jimi needed to take a much needed rest:He produced all
six of the Spyz cds as well as being the primary songwriter
(along with bassist,Rick Skatore.)Not to mention,non-stop
touring around the world for almost 8 years!!!Well,vacation
time is over!!!This CD finds Jimi ready to rock as only he
can!!Jimi plays all the instruments on the CD:Guitar,Bass,
Drums,Keyboards and last,but not least,Vocals!With guest appearances from Turbo B of SNAP!,D.J.Rocking Rob and Renell"Ladybug" Richardson,the party is on and rocking! Jimi produced and released
this CD on his own label,"The Gumbo Recording Company,thus
opening a new chapter for a man who knows no boundaries!!
Like Jimi says,"ROCK WITHOUT SOUL,DON'T ROLL!!So true.
Listen to the audio clips and hear why this man is so well
loved and respected,all around the world!!

21stCenturySouthBronxRockStar??YES.HE IS.AND MORE!!!

NOTE:DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, MY SOLO DISC WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD DISC ONLY!!!! THE NEW SPYZ JOINT TITLED "FACE THE DAY" WILL BE AVAILABLE ON CD BABY SHORTLY AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD DISC AS WELL! THANKS TO ALL OF THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT REAL MUSIC!!!

Jimi Rocks Indeed!
jimi hazel is back baby, and with some super cool tunes! what else would you expect eh? i admit, the 24/7/spyz stuff does it more for me musically but not by much. after a good listen it is apparent that mr. hazel was responsible for a great deal of the spyz sound and direction, not to take away from those guys as they are some bad ass players! jimi baby....tour it man, tour it down south, let's have some rock, roll, and soul, in birmingham man!

Just another great CD from Jimi!
Just when I was getting sick of all the new music coming out I found this! This is as hard rocking as anything Jimi has done in the past. The lyrics and structure of songs like Waiting For The Sun and Saturday are what shows that this man is a musical genius. Jimi DIDN'T leave us stranded!

Harder than Hard, Stronger than Steel--Jimi's the man
Coming from a long-time 24-7 Spyz,"Jimi welcome back!!!!
Jimi's ability to combine heavy metal,funk,pop,soul, encapsulated in a shell of some of the heaviest damn groove you've ever heard is second to none.His soulful voice combined with his XXL riffing has created something.....beautiful.

I just hope he hits the road with this (crossing digits).

Funksoulmetaliconciousnesswith thump!
What an amazing CD! A brilliant kaleidoscope of tasty music. Jimi Hazel has taken so many beautiful colors, heavy sounds and street harmonized them so that the funk and rock is bountiful and fresh. My brother has balls of lead showing off his sensitive side, while keeping it crunchy and riffalicious. I don't know anyone else who could pull this off. Great music will challenge you, artists of this caliber are brave, yet naked prey, they are willing to go where nothing is safe and only true expression is real. 21stCenturyBronxRockStar dominates my CD player. It's as good an offering I've heard from anybody in this world in '02.

WOW
This guy knows how to rock. This is the best blend of various styles of music that I have ever heard on one CD. I can’t take this thing out of my CD player. The melodies are stuck in my head. The groves and vocal harmonies are great and the guitar playing is outstanding. I can’t wait for a new SPYZ CD. Keep the Soul.

Jimi serves up soulful rock like no other...... 5 Stars
Jimi continues to progress as a songwriter, singer and guitarist with the unique ability to meld 60's/70's funk, soul and rock with a heavy guitar tone. Although I miss a full band and the guitar solos were a little low in the mix, Jimi continues to impress and blaze an original path with his unique chord voicings, incredible multi-layered vocal tracks and a slamming attitude. Picks up right where Heavy Metal Soul By the Pound left off, a great disc for any 24-7 Spyz fan, I love this man!
