Oli Silk – All We Need

Keyboardist Oli Silk is best known by the albums Fact or Friction (2000) and Duality (2002), which he released with Danny Sugar. During his relative short solo career he already published the albums So Many Ways (2006), and The Limit’s The Sky (2008). I recommend to visit his new-look website, a piece of impressive artwork, where you can find more information about this upcoming smooth jazz star in a few days.

Born in London, UK he is frequently touring with The Sax Pack, Jackiem Joyner and Cindy Bradley. During the concerts in venues such as Pizza Express and Jazz Café, London he often supports artists like Peter White, Marc Antoine, Richard Elliot, Jaared and Rick Braun.

His new album All We Need (2010) will certainly stimulate the interest for this musician, who is destined for higher merits. Oli is joined by Joe Becket (percussion), Oscar Seaton (drums), Mark Jaimes (guitar, bass), Shannon Pearson (vocals), Dwayne Smith (bass), Gary Honor (sax, flute), Cindy Bradley (flugelhorn, trumpet), Rebeca Vega Felipe (vocals), Carl Stanley (sax) and Marc Antoine (guitar).

Oli welcomes us with the sultry title song All We Need. He has already adapted the elegant piano style of popular artists like George Duke or Alex Bugnon. His sense for melody and arrangment is clean and tidy.

Oli Silk – All We Need

International Artist of the Year Nominee producer/keyboardist Oli Silk steps back into the fray and elevates the bar with  All We Need marking his third and most auspicious musical offerings to date. The old adage ‘third time’s a charm’ comes to mind as Silk ramps up the fun and the funk with this infectious assemblage of sparkling originals that truly showcase his burgeoning talent.

Silk lays the grooves fat and funky on tracks like ‘LA to London (The Return Journey)’ sets a strong hook on ‘Get Out Claws’ a piece that boasts the classic Bob James Rhodes sound and sure to be a hit. ‘Latin Haze’ smokes up guitar licks supplied by Marc Anotine, the track ‘Tokyo’ brings trumpeter and label mate, Cindy Bradley out front and center for a fun and infectious romp and rounding out the set Shannon Pearson wraps her silky smooth voice around the R&B gem ‘Didn’t Know About Love,’ which could very well find a home at Urban AC. Pure pleasure from across the pond!!

Having established himself as a fixture on the American Smooth Jazz radio and touring scene with his prior Trippin N’ Rhythm projects, Silk may well want to begin speaking with a real estate agent as ‘All We Need’ will surely elevate the demands for his time and talents here on American soil.
