The superb Art Sherrod Jr has been on the Smooth Jazz Therapy radar since 2009 and the release of his highly regarded CD ‘Seasons’. Eight years on and it is wonderful to find that Art is still weaving his special brand of sax driven magic with his latest project, ‘Back 2 Business’, from which the excellent ‘Side Step’ is taken.
‘Back 2 Business’ is Art’s fourth studio release and, for him, marks a return to the Smooth Jazz genre. He is joined in the venture by none other than the iconic Chris "Big Dog" Davis on keys, Rohn Lawrence and Robert "WaWa" LeGrand on guitars, bass players Asa Livingston and Corey Baker with Salena Dunbar Gibbs, Anthony Buffy Burnett, Dawn Tallman, Lamone Andrews and Tiffany Tzelle handling background vocals.
