Pro2Call – First Fruit

Formed in 2000, this collection of industry veterans is ready to take the new millennium by storm. Brought together by a common love for skillfully executed modern sounds, Pro2Call blends the best of smooth, electric and gospel jazz into fresh new directions.

Combining the earthly grooves of soul jazz with laid back mellow harmonies and uptempo hard hitting rhythms, their music takes listeners on a journey that inspires and uplifts.

As Christians, the band’s ultimate goal is to take the same love they have for spiritual worship out onto the concert stage, offering the audience a glimpse of that type of powerful encounter, perhaps the most distinguishing characteristic that separates the group from other artists in the genre. Even through instrumental music one can feel the invisible presence and power of the Spirit.

What can one expect from a live Pro2Call performance? Up-tempo energetic sounds that are cutting edge, where listeners not only see, but engage the true heart of the band. Pro2Call aspires to inspire, as well as entertain. Members of the group have performed with/written for/or produced such luminaries as Eric Benet, Will Smith, Kenny Loggins & Jim Messina, Brandon Fields, Special EFX, Wilton Felder, Kebmo, Dave Koz, Louis Johnson, Donald Byrd, Alvin Bautiste, Justo Almario, Jimmy Smith, as well as recent “Best New Smooth Jazz Artist” nominees JANGO & The Lao Tizer Band.

After spending the last 2 decades lending their talents to other artists Pro2Call is breaking out and helping to reshape the face of contemporary smooth jazz.
