resident saxophonist Elan Trotman brings the sunshine into smooth jazz
with his albums Memories - The Debut (2001), Letís Have A Good Old Time (2005), A
Reggae Christmas (2007), This Time Around (2009),
Love and Sax (2011) and Tropicality (2013). His
newest album Incomparable is released
June 22, 2018 on Island Muzik Productions, Elan's own company.
I Am Africa is Elan's
confession to his origin. Originally hailing from the Caribbean island
Barbados Elan's heart still beats for his mother continent. The
African reflection is more in the beat than in the saxophone
interpretation. This irresistible Hip Hop beat Elan excellently
upgrades to Incomparable.
Carnival Fever is the first single of the new album heavily
rotating on smooth jazz radio stations and already promoted by Elan's
video on YouTube.
Canon In C has the Caribbean flavor that runs like a thread
through the entire album. Elan treats the sax with great verve and
humor. The term Canon is not to understand in a classic way,
this is simply fascinating.
Dreaming Of... has the same rhythmical flow like its
predecessors. In the course of this Elan uses turntable moves as a
rhythmic component. The tune shines with captivating melody and sonic
elements. 24 Hrs To Jakarta is inspired by Elan's travel to
the Java Festival 2018 in Jakarta, where he performed together with
Jeff Lorber and Michael Manson.
T&T continues the musical flow but also the basic rhythmical
parts of the previous song. Cape Cod, MA is a touristic
attraction in the southeastern corner of Massachusetts. Elan presents
a tribute in his very own style. Tiny Dancer and Mirage also share the
programmed hip-hop rhythm that haunts us throughout the album.
Music is all about enjoyment and entertainment. When it comes to it, we
are in good company with Elan Trotman's album Incomparable.
