It’s always wise to listen to the soul experts when they tout a must hear blast of urban jazz. Esteemed R&B biographer David Ritz calls “Hi Ya Bye Ya,” the latest single by all-star ensemble Jazz Holdouts featuring legendary bassist Nathan East, “seductive, designed to simultaneously stimulate and soothe. . .with grooves tailored to tame a nervous nation.” Fueled by the peppy, high octane rolling funk stirred up by core members Louis Cortelizzi (sax), Alan Palanker (keyboards) and Michael Thompson (guitar), the speedy paced track is the perfect top down, breeze in your face, late summer anthem. The single, from the band’s upcoming album titled HOLDING ON, is being released to radio in several mixes, sure to offer something to everyone!
