Jerry De Villiers' music released

Postby beat hit » Fri Jun 07, 2013 12:47 pm

Two significant Jerry De Villiers Jr. albums have just been officially released on I-Tunes and Amazon, check out the samples. About time someone cracked the code and opened the vault... :D
Fusion fans familiar with Jerry's significant contributions with Alain Caron, James Gelfand... have been waiting for this for a while. Me being one of them... Jerry's band "Turning Point" was very hot in the Montreal jazz scene in the late 80's, early 90's... They used to play at "L'Air Du Temps" a lot... It no longer exists but that venue was THE place to go if you wanted to see world class level musicianship and/or see well known jazz greats perform.

Electric Soul - Live '94

This one is the overview of the Studio album... Great arrangements, soloing, high quality production.

Virgil Donati's keyboard player Alex Argento is a huge fan as well, he promoted it on his facebook page!!

A rare live video of Jerry's Turning Point in Trio format. Mid 90s Montreal Drum Fest... The dude burns starting at 6:45.. Magella's solid in this context too...
