Summer Breeze - A New Album from Curtis Haywood
On his latest album, saxophonist Curtis has broadened his signature ballad sound with Urban Contemporary rhythms from his R&B Funk roots, thanks to production partner and longtime friend Ainsley Taylor and the early work of Witnel Paul. “Wherever The Chips Fall" (featuring Nathaniel Mitchell on keyboards) and the inspirational "Promise Me” are the lead singles. Curtis exuberates his passion on The Stylistics’ classic "You Are Everything", displays his versatility with steelpan on the Caribbean-flavored rendition of the Seals & Crafts classic title track "Summer Breeze”, and invites flutist Ragan Whiteside to join the fun on "Let it Go”.
I had an amazing time arranging and recording this amazing song, but I had even more fun shooting it with my wife DeAna!. Kick back and Enjoy the infectious vibe of this classic by Seals and Croft.
