ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark Drummond is a Southern California-based guitarist and producer with a funky, soulful approach to smooth jazz and R&B. He spent years honing his style in Mid-South show bands before relocating to Southern California to pursue a career in broadcast radio.

The lure of performing too strong, he joined a country-influenced original R&B group called "Cowboy Soul", as a sideman on lead guitar. It was with this band that Drummond's Southern blues-rock roots were best heard, on several tracks he wrote and produced for the band's CDs.

During this time, Mark also hit his production stride, partnering with a successful Nigerian record company for a string of successful remixes that fused the energy of itinerant Nigerian performers with digital production techniques into genre-bending dance and AfroPop compositions. With lifelong songwriting partner Aljay Boyd, Drummond composed and produced the soundtrack to the film short "Bringing Up BayBay" for Soleil Films.
Mark also contributed production skills and guitar to gospel jazz pianist Daniel A. Nelson's CD "Just A Touch". This collaboration yielded such a pleasing result that the two musicians teamed up for a smooth jazz CD, "2 Smoov 4 Words", to be released in early 2009.

After giving so much of himself to so many successful projects, the next natural next step is for Mark Drummond to offer his own musical vision on the CD "Six Strings One Love". With an eclectic track listing variously described as "R&B", "Funk", and "smooth jazz", SSOL is at once all and none of the above. It is an aural representation of one guitarist's influences, ranging from echoes of Wes montgomery's octave melodies drifting through the leadoff track, "Flow", to the all-out finger-licking funk of Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner's (of the Ohio Players) iconic "Fire" motif installed into the ridiculously funky "P.R.G.".

Six Strings, One Love manages to touch on several subgenres of R&B, but everything is glued together by Drummond's guitar: tasteful, textured, and always rhythmically in the pocket. SSOL is available at www.cdbaby.com/cd/mdrum or by digital download at www.markdrummondcreative.com.

Mark still resides in Southern California with wife Della and sons Ian and Adam. He's currently wrapping up production on the forthcoming release with Daniel A. Nelson and performing to promote SSOL.

IN THE POCKET
HEY ... when a musician can give you a track that you'll always listen to ... thats a very-good musician!!! Jingle Jazz is a real good reading of a classic, and it's my favorite from this album ...
Prg, Grooveometri, and SkinTight are my riding-in-the-car, crosstowntraffic songs ... and I'll keep this album in my car ...

Mark has shown some wonderful musicianship with this outing, good chops, arranging concepts, good production skills, and timing for the songs...

As a guitarist he has studied the tradition of the great funksters and smoothies ... from Wes ... Al McKay, Larry Carlton, to Jimmy Nolen ... and incorporates his playing into the total Song concept ...
