Despite the increasing difficulty that new artists face in finding an outlet, one player to really strike gold is saxophonist Hulon. His fresh perspective on old-school style has been recognized by none other than Jeff Kashiwa who, between his responsibilities to super-group The Sax Pack and the demands of a successful solo career, has now produced Hulon’s debut CD.
‘First Impressions’, which is described as a mixture of hot grooves and romantic charm, is scheduled for release in early 2010. When asked about this exciting new project Kashiwa commented that "It is every producer's dream to come across an artist who has three qualities: drive to develop a unique voice, enthusiasm for creating music and a passion to perform; Hulon posses all three”.
The music of ‘First Impressions’ reflects many moods. From the retro soul of War's ‘Cisco Kid’ to the romantic ‘Follow Me’ Hulon shows he has the stuff to captivate a whole new audience. Check back here soon for a complete review of ‘First Impressions’.
