Kenny Shanker, Beautiful Things (Wise Cat Records)

Next on the horizon is the latest release from saxophonist Kenny Shanker titled “Beautiful Things.” It features a dozen new track, beginning with the swinging melody of “Cool Things” and the up-tempo, energetic blast of “Prestissimo,” before slowing down for the mellow jazz of Rodgers & Hart’s “It Never Entered My Mind.” The tempo picks back up with the back and forth of “Orange And Gray” with Mike Eckroth on piano and Kenny Shanker on sax, as the two waltz around your speakers in a dance of power and grace. Next, Kenny delivers the feel-good sounds of the classic “Without A Song,” which has been performed by a number of artists including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Perry Como just to name a few, but here Kenny adds his own touches to make it his own. The album finishes with the swift-moving melody of “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise” and the gentle, flowing sounds of “Beautiful Things.” To find out more about Kenny Shanker and his latest release “Beautiful Things.”

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
