New Music from Jade ElementJanuary 11, 2012 Having worked together in multiple bands and venues, award-winning pianist Anthony Molinaro, soul/funk/rock innovator Alfred Howard and sultry, neo-soul lead singer Rebecca Jade created an exceptional cool and smooth synergy with The Jade Element.
“The results are a fascinating mix of neo-soul, gospel, jazz, pop and rock rolled up in a sonically infused package.”- Urban Music Scene
The Jade Element is spiced with a taste of funk, soul and a tad of gospel, combining Jade’s tender, sensual vocals, Molinaro’s electronic and bass backdrops, and Howard’s bluesy, emotional lyrics.
Love exists infinitely within Abyss’ lounge-style smooth bass line, jazzy-flute and flamenco guitar. Bring its cool, sleek lines to your next Indie film or commercial. Or if you need a funkier note, The Jade Element begs you to give him a second chance with Raggae and Nu Soul grooves in an uncertain, sensual Back and Forth. Lyrics and melody both lend that undecided air with a steady R&B beat that urges you to make a choice!
More light-hearted Full Eclipse speaks of a steadier, more relaxed experience of love.
We can’t resist a catchy chorus, especially when teamed with soulful organ, horns, and strings in fresh, spirited River Runs Deep. This delicious syncopated track brings gospel uptown with its funky R&B soul. Compare it to “Saxy Seducer” from the album Light and Jazzy.
Also check out the driving, upbeat Drum&Bass groove of Time Never Met. Romantic and sensual it speaks through acoustic bass and guitar, as well as piano and vocals, of the uncertainty of love. Despite the subject, this manages to convince that it’s just part of the process, and everything will turn out OK in the end.
Groovin’ track Tomorrow winds up this album, and its exotic, atmospheric strains would work well to finish out a film, or over the credits. Featuring sitar, ethnic flute, shimmering vocals, and synthesizer with a heavy pulsating beat promising “tomorrow is a new day.” Amen!
The Jade Element is a gorgeous blend of three uber-talented musicians. It’s intriguing twists on the traditional musical genres of soul, jazz, and gospel are the perfect counterpoint to your most sophisticated, impactful projects.
