Album Notes
Grammy nominated writer/producer Brandon Barnes once again blends his talent with smooth jazz Flugelhorn artist Michael Fair to produce their fourth project together titled "Funk In The Trunk." This CD features a wide variety of music with hard driving funk tunes like the title cut "Funk In The Trunk" to beautiful haunting ballads like "Tell Me Why" and "Smiles From Heaven." "Danza Del Verano" has an infectious upbeat Latin groove and "Good To Be With You" has a contemporary pop vibe guaranteed to instantly brighten the listener's mood. This CD also covers the Jimmy Webb classic "Wichita Lineman" which has to be one of the most beautiful melodies ever written. You'll hear superb production with passionate attention to detail on every track of this, the latest offering by the writing and recording team of Michael Fair and Brandon Barnes. This is a CD with something for everyone. As the title implies, it's a fun collection that we know will put a smile on your face and most of all it will put some "Funk In Your Trunk."

Funk in the Trunk - Michael Fair
Recently Fair and Barnes combined their talents once again for the cd Funk in the Trunk, now their 4th joint effort. As with the previous releases, this project is produced impeccably while presenting a mix of funky jazz styles. With influences ranging from Herb Alpert and Chuck Mangione to Chet Baker, Fair's tone is always full and rich - it's now a pleasure to nudge Fair and Funk in the Trunk into Café Jazz spotlight found at http://www.jazzlynx.net/cafejazzradio_audio.html. To begin the feature, there's a haunting ballad entitled Tell Me Why. Come Back to Me hits us up at the start of hour 2 with a groove that's relaxing and smooth. While in the end, we take time to reminisce with the feel-good nostalgia of I Remember When! Changes over the past few years have seen a lot of the air let out of smooth jazz - thankfully artists like Michael Fair and cds like Funk in the Trunk are breathing some much needed life into the genre!
