Sky Canyon – ‘Bluesalicious’
Boulder-based musician Sky Canyon has released the incredible single ‘Bluesalicious’. It is a must-hear release this April 2022.
A wonderful and inviting opening greets the listener with dancing melodies and stoic backing instrumentation. We adore the bass and piano that dance around each other, complementing one another beautifully.
As the drums enter, the track is in full flow. It is a piece filled with vivid colours that fill the sonic spectrum. The instrumentation knows when to go hard and when to pull back and leave space.
In addition, the mix, production and master of ‘Bluesalicious’ are simply divine. Every part of the varied and intricate instrumentation has its own space in the mix and shines bright. ‘Bluesalicious’ is jazz at its finest.
Sky Canyon says about the release. “I’m a professional musician for 40+ years, now releasing jazz singles, mostly originals, playing the vibraphone (and other instruments on some of the tunes).” He continues, “This tune, ‘Bluesalicious’, is my an original in the classic jazz/blues flavor with a quartet of A-list musicians.”
Previously, Sky Canyon has been a principal percussionist in symphony orchestras, and he also studied with jazz vibraphone master Terry Gibbs. In addition, he has also produced best-selling albums in the new age genre with Watercourse Media.
You can hear Sky Canyon’s heart and soul when listening to ‘Bluesalicious’. He is a musician who connects to the music and injects the piece with his personality and essence.
In addition, Canyon is an intelligent composer and arranger who makes sophisticated jazz that stands out from the crowd. With over 50 years in the music business behind him, we can not wait to check out Sky Canyon’s back catalogue too.
So make sure you add ‘Bluesalicious’ to your new music playlist this week. Sky Canyon is a cultivated talent that needs to be heard to be fully appreciated.
