JERMAINE LOCKHART - THE SUNSHINE ALBUM (SoulMusic Records/Warner X)

Jermaine Lockhart - The Sunshine Album

Gifted saxophonist, Jermaine Lockhart, debuts his artistic, authentic, true character, and creative self in this new project, which boasts cameo spots by esteemed musical talents, Ray Parker Jr.., Ellis Hall (of Tower Of Power fame) and Rob Mullins.  The vibe of the music is lively and broad-reaching and cleverly uses “sunshine” as its catalyst… something the world could use a lot more of especially during these uncertain times. 

The album has well-chosen, thematic “sunshine” cover songs including Donovan's "Sunshine Superman," Bill Withers' “Ain’t No Sunshine” and The Clark Sisters' "You Brought The Sunshine" along with original compositions such as “Emotion Explosion”, “Have It Anyway You Want It” and “Elizabeth," all in all a glowing collection of songs, with interludes sprinkled in-between.   

To quote George Benson, “Jermaine Lockhart is an artist that comes along only once in a while. When you hear him play, it’s something very striking - so that the next time you hear him, you’ll KNOW there is something very familiar about his sound.”
