New Music For June 6, 2019

Denver, CO born Skellenger has learned and honed his craft exclusively on the electric bass. He earned a B. A. in Music from Metropolitan State College in Denver and has also attended numerous electric bass workshops such as “Bass At The Beach” and “Bass Nature Camps.” Stylistically, he has covered many varying genres that include jazz, rock, folk, blues and pop. In addition to writing and producing music, he is also a teacher at Swallow Hill Music School. In his latest release, “Vitality,” Skellenger added new instrumentation consisting of trumpet, cornet and flugelhorn. These instruments round out an already interesting release of a combination of jazz and rock. For the most part, the nine tracks are pretty upbeat and have a toe tapping groove. There are, however, a few more mellow tunes as well. Skellenger also gets to showcase his considerable skill on the electric bass and manages to do so in an unobtrusive manner. On my system, I thought the recording was excellent and had superb imaging.

Overall:  8/10 Sonics:  8.5/10

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.
