Ben Tankard – Rise!

American’s top Gospel/Jazz man proves why he is the “Quincy Jones of Gospel” with this stunning new Smooth Jazz CD full of collaborations. Starring super-guests: Marion Meadows, Kirk Whalum, Paul Jackson, Jr. as well as three new artists “on the rise”.

Ben Tankard’s newest Instrumental release Rise! provides a musical backdrop for the listener to dream, meditate, and ascend. Grammy-winning special guests include: Marion Meadows on sax with title track Rise ! (a remake of Herb Alpert’s smash hit from 1979), Kirk Whalum on sax with “It’s Working” (William Murphy remake ) and Paul Jackson, Jr. on guitar for “More Rain”. Tankard also presents featured performances by some young artists that are on the “Rise”: Dejuan Williams, 1LV, and Kyle Schroeder on their own tracks as well as two fun tracks with his ghost band (Unlisted Number) and alter ego.
