in Houston, Texas, now a South Florida resident
multi-instrumentalist Randy McGill covers a broad range of
styles. Inspired by artists such as Robert Glasper and
Snarky Puppy, he is a musician always pushing for greatness.
His debut album is the EP Eclectic, released in
November, 2017. Randy has written and mixed all songs and
invited an elite circle of top musicians to his project.
Neeeooooohhhhhhh follows a completely different
approach to traditional smooth jazz. Instead of a sonic
melody, McGill chooses a collage of voice messages (Martin
Luther King Jr.'s speeches), sound
sequences, and gospel-like vocal chords.
That it also works differently, he demonstrates with the
following Your Eyes. Extraordinary in the length of
fascinating solos on piano and keyboards evolves from a
very groovy piece. Responsible for this musical listening
pleasure is blessed pianist Randy McGill and Dre Synth, who
played the outstanding synth solo.
Funktastic is an ecstatic wild ride through the
realms of Funk. Up-tempo to the max the involved musicians
reach their borders and perform far beyond. Nakupenda
Wewe means in Swahili I Love You. After a folkloristic

Kansas City Shuffle dives into blues, jazz funk,
jazz fusion rooms going in and out never closing the door.
Keyboardist Mitch Towne interferes a straight melody with
piano lines who squirm like musical snakes. The Hammond B3
solo gives true meaning to the word virtuoso. The final
Neeeooooohhhhhhh reveals some more exquisite McGill
Randy McGill presents on his album Eclectic musical
artistry and effervescently inventive, multi-color and
enthralling instrumental eccentricities. A musician
who enjoys his freedom of creativity.
