Jared Wilson a spirited Tenor Saxophonist who trades quick linear lines for a soulful warm big bodied sound releases his debut CD. The pleasure is all yours as you get to listen to a true master of the Organ, Gene Ludwig. So enjoy The Vibe
Feel good jazz is what we have here. That kind of laid back sound that wafts through the air on a Sunday morning… like the smell of a good brew of coffee and fresh baked goods, Jared Wilson’s jazz is strongly appealing. Easy, joyful jazz is the focus here on WORRY NO MORE. According to the artist, “Music is something that should make you feel good. It has the power to transform one’s mood from gloomy to feelings of jubilation.” A driven young talent from Pittsburgh, PA, Jared Wilson originally gravitated toward the trumpet before perusing the saxophone. But by the age of 13, he discovered the tenor sax and the rest, as they say, is history. Inspired by the greats: Grover Washington, Jr., Michael Brecker and Bob Mintzer… Jared Wilson & The Vibe have been laying down good feelings for more than a decade. The release of their debut CD WORRY NO MORE guarantees this musical offering will be received way outside of Pittsburgh as our global community of jazz enthusiasts discovers it here on SmoothJazz.com. In addition to the Vibe, the project features legendary organist Gene Ludwig throughout. The compositions range from straight-ahead jazz to funk to R&B. From the relaxing title track to a cool cover of “Cold Duck Time,” to the lovely and soulful ballad Jared wrote for his wife “Gia” with a similar feel to Coltrane’s “Naima,” to the SmoothJazz.com hit “Vibe Vamp,” WORRY NO MORE feels good from start to finish. ~SANDY SHORE

Refreshingly soothing and relaxing, “Worry No More” does just that – takes the listener on a journey away from stresses of everyday life and into the utopia of jazz heaven.
