"Since you've been around", first LP by NYC band Soul'd Out NYC. Led by pianist/composer Olivier Court and featuring singer Aliah Sheffield ("Earth is Ghetto" she sang), bassist Louis de Mieulle, saxophonist Gabriel Richards, among others.
Recorded at Dreamland studios upstate NY (Jerry Marotta's).
Soul'd Out was formed around 2012 in New York City, where we became a regular act at the famed SHRINE and ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL.
Olivier, a specialist of American Soul music, and Aliah, a hidden gem from Savannah Georgia, have written a collection of modern soul classics.
Memorable hooks, classy horn arrangements, rich and unusual compositions... I took unequaled pleasure in playing for that band. Learning the Soul tradition - one of America's few jewels.
