The pair Smith and Hay release their full-length album titled Jazz that features several multi-platinum musicians. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Jerome “Bigfoot” Brailey, who co-wrote “Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker)” with George Clinton, plays on many songs on the LP Jazz.
One of the first singles from the project is titled “Maybe (The Jazz Prequel)” with newcomers Iliana Eve, Antik and Raphael. The other single “Andy Cohen” is a collaboration with Grammy Award winner Jerry Hey, who recently appeared on John Mayer’s The Search for Everything. Jerry Hey is most known for his extensive work with Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones including his contributions to Thriller, the biggest selling album of all-time.
15-year-old singer Iliana Eve steals the show with her rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love” with timeless sounding saxophone playing from Benny Reid from Concord Music Group.
