Brian Culbertson – The Trilogy, Part I – Red

RedJazz/R&B keyboardist Brian Culbertson is not only successful in the area of smooth jazz. But he unfolds his primordial power when he pushes into the fields of Funk. With Bringing Back The Funk, released in 2008 on GRP Records, and Funk! on his own label in 2016 he has already set two milestones. His next album XX, so named because it’s his twentieth album, extended the spectrum in the spirit of his diversity.

Further releases are Music From The Hang (2020) and Soundscapes (2021). His newest project is The Trilogy, Part 1 – Red (2021). The Trilogy consists of Part 1: red = passion (coming 9.24.21), Part 2: blue = melancholy (coming 1.14.22), and Part 3: white = hope (coming 5.6.22). All songs are written, arranged, and produced by Brian Culbertson.

Brian is performing on the new album Piano, Vocals, Keyboards, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Wah Clavinet, Hammond B3 Organ, Minimoog, Guitars (on Tracks 2 and 7), Synth Bass, Fender Jazz Bass (on Tracks 1, 2, 4, and 7), Hi-Hat, Cymbals, Snare Drum, Hand Claps, Drum Programming, Percussion, Sound Design, and Trombone. Further musicians are Isaiah Sharkey – Lead and Rhythm Guitars on Tracks 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6, Randy Bowland – Rhythm Guitars on Tracks 1 and 3, Darnell “Showcase” Taylor – Guitars on Tracks 9 and 10, Alex Al – Fender Precision Bass on Track 3, Rishon Odel – Fender Jazz Bass on Track 9, and Micaela Haley – Vocal FX on Track 5 and Vocals on Track 10.
