"Soul Groove" by Kyle Wolverton (Jazz Artist from Los Angeles, California(CA))

RadioIndy is pleased to present Kyle Wolverton with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Soul Groove"
"Soul Groove" is the saxophone led contemporary smooth jazz solo debut from Kyle Wolverton. Primarily an instrumental album, Wolverton drives this record with his outstanding sax skills and creates a unique sound by combining the smooth jazz sound with the heavy influence of the R&B and gospel genres. "Soul Groove" is filled with saxophone led melodies that show Wolverton's mastery and control of all three genres. Four of the songs include vocal stylings which feature various Los Angeles based artists. These songs are crafted in a smooth R&B style and are reminiscent of Keith Sweat and Luther Vandross. The album is well-produced and gives each song that polished quality smooth jazz albums typically require. The title track, "Soul Groove," fuses together R&B and smooth jazz and gives a flush song that brings about the likeness of Marvin Gay and Kenny G. "On The Brink" departs from the saxophone sound and incorporates acoustic guitar, drums, and hand claps in its stead, resulting in a strong, gospel-inspired vocal performance from Wolverton. Overall, "Soul Groove" is an impressive solo debut from Wolverton that shows his vocal and musical talents, as well as his ability to creatively control the sound. Fans of R&B and saxophone-driven smooth jazz should check out this album.
