Mo Louis To The Maxx WestCoast Sax Records

Euge Groove’s official credits on emerging saxophonist Mo Louis’ sexy and swaying, emotionally hard-hitting 4th single “To the Maxx” are mixing and mastering. Beyond that, Louis credits Euge – after buying a horn from him - for helping make his dream of becoming a Smooth Jazz artist a reality by hooking him up with composer/producer Jeff Carruthers. It’s a dream that began with the artist's childhood love for David Sanborn and Grover Washington, Jr. and found its way to fruition after years of touring with pop, R&B and blues groups. Testament to Mo's increasing renown among the genre elite, this super fire, horn-centric track, is Louis’ latest co-write with Jeff Carruthers, and it features explosive interaction with and a sparkling piano solo by Jeff Lorber! Mo may be short for Maurice, but it also refers to what's to come from this artist, as in MORE. Watch this space!

Bob Coate Love Like That bobcoate.com

The first thing you'll see on the website of the keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist Bob Coate is the phrase “Smooth Jazz and Beyond.” More than just clever branding, the slogan captures the stylistically freewheeling artist’s ever-evolving vibe. Easing away from the laid back beachy cool of his earlier singles, his previous two were a festive Latin excursion and an in the pocket, light funk romp with producer Sonix. Continuing not only to move but obliterate the needle of previous expectations, Coate’s upbeat, frolicsome latest single “Love Like That,” finds him blending lighthearted, jazzy piano magic with bluesy organ harmonies over a contemporary, irrepressible groove. In addition to featuring the energetic warm tones of Hungarian saxophonist Peter Herold, the track was produced by Peet Ferencz (Peet Project) and Sandy Shore (SmoothJazz.com) – a remarkable duo that has also produced an ongoing series of star-studded SmoothJazz.com “Songles" and is opening their studios to artist works!

The title of Nils’ 2020 album CAUGHT IN THE GROOVE says it all about the multi-talented guitarist/composer’s dominance of the Smooth Jazz charts as both an artist and producer since his mid-2000s breakthrough with his first #1 hit “Pacific Coast Highway.” The ever-prolific, always innovative Nils gears up for his upcoming album FEELIN’ GOOD with a fresh, shimmering twist on the classic Earth, Wind & Fire smash “That’s The Way of the World.” Nils has created numerous pop re-imaginings over the years, but this is the first he’s dropped as a single. The compelling track has all the classic Nils trademarks – compelling rhythm guitar, a bright electric guitar melody, sophisticated horn accents (courtesy of Johnny Britt), soulful caressing atmospheres and a seductive rhythm that will invite you to get caught in the groove!

Continuing his mission to spread love and harmony across the globe through music, the multi-talented artist and label owner (Nucleus Entertainment, Inc.) nicknamed “The Mad Scientist” sets the stage for LOVE CRUSADE 2.0 with this buoyant, high energy, synth and piano driven funk and fury of its lead single “Victory.” With soaring atmospheres swirling around Sonix’s ultra-catchy melody, it’s a sweeping anthem and rallying cry paying homage to the ever-resilient spirits of those who have endured life’s toughest trials, overcome obstacles and emerged as champions!
