Ridin' the Beat

by Steve Lipman

Jazz and the Great American Standards! Brent Black from Critical Jazz says , "Lipman's gift is his passionate interpretation and immediate connectivity with the listener. Old school vocal jazz fans tired of the more commercial fare that is circling the sonic drain that is currently part of the industry should flock to this release. Pure entertainment. Style and substance is a rare mix but Lipman pulls it off with relative ease.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
RIDIN’ THE BEAT
Ridin’ The Beat is Steve Lipman’s second release. Despite the fact that his first album, There’s a Song in my Heart, received numerous favorable critics’ reviews, and radio airplay across the globe, Steve will always consider it his proverbial “first”. “Man that was my initial go at it in the studio and I was green as the grass that grows. It was no time for egos; truly I had a lot to learn! Kind of like being in grade school all over again. I was fortunate to be surrounded by a group of superbly talented individuals, notably engineer/producer Rod Warner and arranger/musician Dan Prindle. Both men helped me immeasurably, in finding my soul in this business and honing my craft.”

On Ridin’ The Beat, Steve Lipman, took all that he learned in his first effort and reached for the stars. From its inception, Steve desired an album in the truest sense. Instead of simply laying down a string of unrelated and disconnected tracks so common in many of today’s pop projects, Steve Lipman wanted Ridin’ The Beat to be different. He wanted Ridin’ The Beat to have a soul. It needed to communicate that elemental human essence, the inner drive and emotions that define exactly who we are. It needed to be subtle and caress the thoughts, to allow each listener to creatively extract a personal understanding.

To achieve this goal, Steve carefully selected each great American classic. Notable composers including Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart and Cole Porter, are represented here. Through the strong arrangements by Dan Prindle, and the terrific jazz talent of Stephen Page, Josh Evans, Bryan Kelly, Doug Lang and Rene Gonzalez, the music becomes alive and contemporary. It gives Lipman something truly special to sink his teeth into. Yes, some of these tunes ring comfortably familiar, yet others awaken the listener to something truly unique and groundbreaking. All of this, combined with the musical genius of producer and engineer Rod Warner, makes Ridin’ The Beat truly a fulfillment of Steve Lipman’s goal. Without a doubt, Ridin’ The Beat has a soul, it’s a tale all so human, filled with a comfortable familiarity.

So go ahead, pour yourself something nice. Imagine yourself seated in some swank jazz club, the anticipation growing as the show is about to start. The lights dim and they take the stage as a hush encompasses the room. Now you’re ready. Sit back and enjoy, Ridin’ The Beat!


Review by Brent Black from Critical Jazz

Steve Lipman Ridin' The Beat Locomotion Records 2012

When it comes to multi-tasking, no one beats a musician. Gene Autry took a radio and television career as a spring board to becoming perhaps the second most influential figure in country music next to Jimmy Rodgers. Michael Pedicin at 64 years young has a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology while maintaining his status as a premier straight ahead solo artist and ace session player.

So why not a singing dentist?

Vocalist Steve Lipman has a distinct passion much like those previously mentioned. Lipman's passion is The Great American Songbook. The subtly of timeless classics where the music transcends the emotional boundaries of daily life and takes the listener on a journey. Lipman describes his connection to this genre as one of human connectivity with another individual. Much in the same fashion as helping a patient in distress there is a similar sense of satisfaction or musical "high" that comes from the creativity of song.

Steve Lipman is an old school throwback and while he owns a successful dental practise, music is his dream and his passion. With classics such as "Teach Me Tonight" and "That Old Black Magic" Lipman finds a musical happy place some where between crooner and cabaret singer while letting the songs take care of themselves. Fueled by passion, Lipman is surrounded with some gifted musicians that blend well for a unique interpretation of standards that avoids the mundane or predictable. Lipman hand picked these tunes and while some are iconic there are others that are wonderful forgotten memories from composers ranging from Harold Arlen to Johnny Mercer.

Lipman's gift is his passionate interpretation and immediate connectivity with the audience or listener to allow them the chance to experience the same emotional highs and lows we all feel and are saved forever in these classics.

Old school vocal jazz fans tired of the more commercial fare that is circling the sonic drain that is currently part of the industry should flock to this release. Pure entertainment. Style and substance is a rare mix but Lipman pulls it off with relative ease.
