ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was excited when Blue Note Records offered me a contract in 2001. Blue Note Records released my CD “Melange” in August 2001 a month before 9-11. This was a difficult time for many artists around the world due to the overwhelming tragedies. The “Melange” CD sales did not go well during this time of grief, but this did not stop my dream of being a bandleader. My manger was Hitomi Kakuda. She arranged a two-week tour in Japan and a Rising Star tour in Germany. The tours were successful and my group became known to many in Japan and in Europe. I did not ask for assistance from Blue Note Records during these tours. I wanted to display what I was willing to do in order to present my music and my group. Everything seemed to be going well until Blue Note Records decided to discontinue my contract in 2002. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I was very pleased with the amazing musicians in my group and wanted to record a live CD with hope to gain another recording deal. My group for this CD consisted of many great musicians; Marcus Strickland, who was still in college attending The New York School of Music. Jeremy Pelt, I first heard him performing at Berklee College of Music while I was on tour with Cassandra Wilson. I heard wonderful things about George Colligan from Gary Thomas years ago. I contacted Nathaniel Townsley because my original drummer Lionel Cordew was not available. We had a startling sound.

I decided to record two live CDs, “Lonnie Plaxico Group Live At The Zinc Bar” in New York and “Lonnie Plaxico Live At The 5:01 Jazz Bar” in Columbus Ohio. I started my own record label, Plaxmusic after receiving letters of rejections from other labels. I released “Lonnie Plaxico Live At The 5:01 Jazz Bar” in August 2002. I also made a video of that performance and Village Records in Japan was impressed by it, and offered me a contract which resulted in two recordings. These recordings were “Lonnie Plaxico Group Live at the Jazz Standard” (2003) and “So Alive” (2004). Sirroco Records also saw the video of the “Lonnie Plaxico Live at the 5:01 Jazz Bar” performance and offered me a contract. I recorded one CD entitled, “Rhythm and Soul” in January 2003. The latest CD I released on Plaxmusic label was “Westside Stories” in April 2006. I decided to finally release “Lonnie Plaxico Group Live At The Zinc Bar” because I wanted to share with my first group. Jeremy and Marcus who are now leading their own bands. Jeremy is also recording on Max-Jazz label. Marcus and his brother E.J. have their own label, Strick Muzik. George performs with many bands in NYC and creating many CDs with his band.

I hope you enjoy the music as well as the musicians on this CD. We performed as a group for two years prior to the making of “Lonnie Plaxico Live at the Zinc Bar.” The song “To Young to Go Steady,” Marcus sounded mature as anyone that I’ve ever heard playing a ballade. Jeremy reminded me of the great trumpet masters, Lee Morgan & Freddie Hubbard on the song “Old Folks.” I cannot say enough about Nate and George. I love the way they performed on ”Squib Cakes” and through out the entire CD. Please enjoy “Lonnie Plaxico Live At The Zinc Bar” in New York.

Yours Truly,

Lonnie Plaxico March 24th 2007
