Welcome To The Soul-Patrol Newsletter

INTRODUCING JAYE Q (he's a whole new thang)

JayeQ Jaye Q is a new artist that we are proud to introduce to you here on Soul-Patrol. He is extremeley talented, driven, proffesional and likable. This renders him as quite an anomaly in the overal landcape of artists here in the year 2010.

I first met Jaye Q about 6 months ago here online and since that time, he has quite literally overwhelmed me with fantastic music, videos and more. For example, in this issue of the Soul-Patrol Newsletter we are focusing on Jaye Q's brand new double album called "From My Soul."

This is a two CD album with one is a Jazz & the other a Soul/Funk album. There are 26 GREAT songs on one album. Modern conventional wisdom says that most people don't have time to check out 26 songs, regardless of how good they are.

Jaye Q doesn't care about the "conventional wisdom" and in fact says that he is out to chage it. He thinks that Black music has been "dumbed down" for long enough and he doesn't want to become a contributor to that problem. Jaye Q is so determined to become the solution to the problem of "dumbed down black music" that he is going to release two more albums in 2011.

To say that Jaye Q a prolific multi-instrumentalist/vocalist would be an understatement. To say that his music is great, is something that you can decide for yourself, by going over to his website to take a listen at: Jaye Q's website http://www.jayeqmusic.com or his YouTube Video Channel: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=jayeqmusic#g/u

However to say that Jaye Q is an artist worth becoming a fan of is without question for me on a personal level. I have become a fan of Jaye Q not only because I dig his music so much, it is also because of his approach. He wants to become a part of the solution rather than making the problem worse. And he doesn't mind opposing "the conventional wisdom" in doing so. My feeling is that Black music needs a whole lot more artists like Jaye Q if we are ever gonna get things turned around. I suspect that I will continue to be a fan of Jaye Q for a long time to come. Go check him out and let me know if you think that I am wrong?

Scroll down to read my review of Jaye Q - "From My Soul" and to read our press release on him. Then go and check out his website http://www.jayeqmusic.com or his YouTube Video Channel: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=jayeqmusic#g/u

Let me know what cha think?

Quickie Album Review - Jaye Q - "From My Soul"
(Soul/Funk/Jazz)


Quickie Album Review - Jaye Q - From My Soul"BEST; superlative of good, excelling all others.." -- Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

Have you ever heard of this artist? His name has been plastered all over the Soul-Patrol.com website for the past few months, yet I have said very little about him (until today)

In the role that I am supposed to play here online, there is an expectation that I am supposed to inform people about what "the best" is.

Those of you, who know me well, also know that this is a role that I have a serious conflict about. In fact it is a serious enough conflict that I will often go for months at a time without publishing a review. The reason for my conflict is that I really don't think that my opinion (and remember that is all a review is) isn't any more or less valid than anyone else. In 2010, that assumption is even more true. It is very easy for anyone to go online, listen to a body of music and then decide for themselves if they like it or not. Given the truth that pretty much all music is freely available for anyone to "review," then what is the point of having a separate person playing the "role" of something called a "music reviewer?"

Just when I am about to get comfortable with that notion, an album like Jaye Q - "From My Soul" comes along, to completely destroy any intellectual ambivalence that I may have towards the process of writing music reviews.

This album is an anomaly in today's "fast food like music consumption model of 2010." It is the polar opposite of what all of the music experts say is the correct way to make music in 2010:

1. It's a double CD, giving you two full albums for the price of one

2. One album is a cold blooded funk masterpiece, seemingly inspired by Prince/Time/ZAPP (a category that doesn't exist on radio or in record stores)

3. The second album is a jazz album that is neither smooth or straight no chaser, that feels like it exists in the same universe as a CTI or GRP album, filled with both great instrumental and vocal performances

4. Both albums are full of great songs, with both lyrical & instrumental substance, reflecting deep thought on the part of the artist, yet still comprised of enough entertainment value & fun that people will actually listen to the complete album all of the way through

5. The albums are professionally recorded

6. Jaye Q & his band are just as good live as they are on record

The first time I listened to Jaye Q - "From My Soul," it made me remember immediately the reason why I started writing album reviews. This double CD set is a full bodied artistic expression of music that even the casual fan of the musical styles represented here will immediately find compelling.

Here is what I wrote about a week later:

"Jaye Q's new double album currently occupies a permanent spot very close to the CD player in my car. Usually when someone says they have a "Jazz/Funk album" a certain picture emerges in our mind. The first disc reminds me of a Marvin Gaye + Prince + ZAPP album. The second disc reminds me of a Herbie Hancock + David Sanborn + Lonnie Liston Smith album. So In this case it really is a "Jazz/Funk album." Anyhow, I'm not really supposed to be reviewing the album here, so I'll stop now, so that yall can read the actual press release. and then go to Jaye Q's website http://www.jayeqmusic.com so that you can take a listen"

That was about all that I wrote about this album, I figured that to say more might actually defeat the purpose. I figured that the best thing I could do was to let people here it. And I figured that the best way to do that was to simply direct people to Jaye Q's website (http://www.jayeqmusic.com). I figured that rather than expound & expound on paper about how great this album is, just go on over to Jaye Q's website, where he has done a pretty good job of having it available to listen. There a person can listen/review for themselves.

Lo & behold, (true to the 2010 model) many thousands of people have gone over to Jaye Q's website and taken a listen. And after taking a listen, they have made dozens of postings on Facebook informing their friends about Jaye Q - "From My Soul."

So now Jaye Q's got a ton of traffic bouncing back & forth between his website and Soul-Patrol and Facebook. And if that wasn't enough, then Jaye Q released several video's and posted them on the "Jaye Q YouTube channel." Some of these music video's are straight live performance and some are 1980's eMpTVy style "mini movies" and there is one that is a video profile of Jaye Q himself. Now he's got traffic bouncing back and forth between his website, YouTube, Facebook and Soul-Patrol.

My point here (and I realize that this may no longer even be a review) is that in all of this, the only thing that truly matters is the quality of the music. If its really good and you allow people to hear it, then they will not only dig your music, but they will also tell others about it.

If you prefer your Black music served up "fast food style," then you should look elsewhere. However if you prefer your Black music served up "Thanksgiving style" (with all of the trimmings, including homemade biscuits & gravy,) then you can find what you are looking for at; http://www.jayeqmusic.com It is superior music, done the "old fashioned way," available to you 2010 style.

And it's the best album that I have heard thus far in 2010. I guess that would also mean that it's the best album I have heard this decade (so far)

(so maybe this is a review after all?)

Jaye Q. is proud to release a new double CD album entitled "From My Soul." Soul-Funk and Soul-Jazz combined will prove to be one of the groundbreaking albums of 2010.

Produced, arranged, composed, and performed by Jaye Q., his new double CD "From My Soul," captures the essence of true musicianship revealing his vivid imagination through song.

Los Angeles, CA, February 28, 2010: Jaye Q. is releasing "From My Soul" out of his own Q-Ball Studios in Los Angeles. This project is long overdue, but certainly not the first for Jaye Q. His previous projects include:

As a teenager he performed as a percussionist on Aretha Franklin's album titled, "Aretha."

In 1996 he started his own label and put out his debut album entitled, "Sensual Thoughts," which was produced, arranged, composed, and performed by him.

In 2001 he joined an R&B group called "Shakespeare Jones" which later became "Forbidden". While with the group he toured Japan as a drummer and back-up singer leading to a signed deal with Priority records.

In 2004 he teamed up with Michael Kreple, Joe Drock, and Patrick L. LaTouche, forming the "JQ Band." They released their debut album "Funky World Order," performing at the following venues: Viper Room, Key Club, House of Blues, and BB Kings. The JQ Band opened up for Shanice Wilson and Jon B. at the Rumba Room where they were asked to perform on a regular basis.

Jaye Q brings his diverse talents and experiences together to make "From My Soul" an immersive experience for the listener. His album cover has a quote that accurately points out that "What's missing in today's music is Diversified Soul-Jazz funkster Jaye Q."
