Andre Cavor - Cool Jazz
Over the past two decades, urban jazz icons Kirk Whalum and Jonathan Butler have paved the way for emerging artists to take a bolder approach to blending their passions for instrumental pop, jazz and soul and gospel music. While those two artists were well established before they began recording gospel and worship albums – and rarely blend the two styles on a single project – saxophonist Andre Cavor is unabashedly sharing his lifelong love for both styles of music from the get go.
True to its title, the Cleveland based performer’s independent debut album Road Trip chronicles his multi-faceted journey – starting with playing the sax in church and, over the past decade, founding and leading The Cavor Project, an 11 piece ensemble renowned as one of the most diverse bands in the city. Andre found the perfect producer to take his artistry to the next level in Darren Rahn, a saxophonist and artist who has worked his studio magic for Whalum and Butler in addition to genre greats Dave Koz, Wayman Tisdale, Najee, Eric Darius, Jeffrey Osborne and Jeff Lorber.
Andre Cavor comments his new album: “Mixing contemporary jazz and gospel songs on Road Trip felt like a natural extension of my many live performances over the years. Road Trip will bring balance to your listening ears.”
