From everything I have written, there is a song that has become very relevant in these times. It is ‘I will go on’, which I created as a tribute to a dear friend who passed away many years ago. I want you to listen to it with me. To conmemorate those who have left us, and to promise them we’ll keep living and celebrating the life of those who have survived the disease and those who keep taking all the necessary precautions for the virus not to spread further.

You might think you have never heard of Maceo Parker before, but you probably know his work with James Brown back in the sixties. They were a fantastic team, but Mr. Parker’s career goes well beyond that!
Let’s wrap up the subject of the Electronic Press Kit with this episode. What else do you have to keep in mind when making it? What are the true essentials you just cannot let pass?

On January 2019, my sax rendition of ‘Take Me To The King’ reached N.1 in the BWIST chart. Just last month, April 2020, the reggae version of ‘Just The Way You Are’ that we did with Sandii McCalla got to the same position in Stevie J’s chart. It is always an honour and a pleasure to see these songs in which I have poured all my knowledge and love towards music up there, in the highest point. Thank you for making it possible!
Last week, DJ Kevin Stew had Gary as a guest on his show. They talked at length about all things music, including the production of our Billy Joel’s ‘Just The Way You Are’ cover with Sandii McCalla and yours truly.
This is the third and final stop in the delightful trip across Nat King Cole’s legacy, that I have been doing in this blog since some weeks ago. ‘Unforgettable’ is suave, full of sentiment, a slow song that prompts you to dream, and it is an excellent piece to version with the saxophone (now, which song by Nat King Cole isn’t?).
The Facebook Live session I had on March 27th was a lovely evening, and I am happy to revisit it from time to time. If you want to do so or you missed the stream, now you can watch the video on Facebook or my official YouTube channel.
Things did a 180° turn since the last time I shared Nat King Cole, didn’t they? However, his music continues to be a source of inspiration and I am still working on adding more of his songs to my repertoire. Enjoy today the classic hit L.O.V.E, and let it make you smile 🙂
