Herb Partlow – Next Level

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Herb Partlow has been a radio personality, producer and artist, manager, recording and mastering engineer. This music industry veteran is excited to have released his fourth contemporary jazz project. NEXT LEVEL is the title track from his same-titled album.

Playing keyboards, piano, bass, and drums, he lays a dynamic foundation with a groove intensive flow. Saxophonist DeLon Charley and guitarist Ricardo Love take Partlow’s vision and vibe into the urban jazz fusion stratosphere! He incorporates elements of jazz, funk and hip-hop to create jazz music with a slightly harder edge. It is very smooth and jazzy music, but it also knocks with 808 kicks and drum rhythms that will appeal to the younger generation, as well as the traditional smooth jazz consumers. This is “jazz music for a new generation.”
