Julian Vaughn – Supreme

Hailing from Kansas City bass player Julian Vaughn has reached after The Purpose Project(2010), Breakthrough (2012), Limitless (2015) and Bona Fide (2017) with Supreme (2019) number 5 of his solo projects. Not just a handful but a 5 stars career.

Julian Vaughn plays on the new album bass. He is supported on selected tracks by Darren Rahn, Elan Trotman, Marcus Anderson, Donald Hayes (sax), Adam Hawley, Mike Hart, Andrew Freeman (guitar), Mel Brown (bass), Jeremy Nixon, Jeremy Thomas, Greg Manning, Lew Laing (keyboards), Nicholas Cole, Oli Silk (piano) and Anthony Saunders (vocals).

With Flash Back Friday as opening track Julian continues the glorious times of the 80’s music. The bass in the lead sharing the melody with Darren Rahn on sax is a good way to get to the hit parade. The title Black Dynamite spontaneously reminds me of the original film Shaft with the film music by Isaac Hayes. Is it a coincidence that the saxophonist’s name is Donald Hayes?

Julian Vaughn – Supreme

A dynamic lead bass player from Kansas City, bassist Julian Vaughn has made a international name for himself since 2010 as a bassist in the smooth jazz which is dominated by artist who play sax. Although the bass is often associated with funk, Vaughn likes to play with more of a finesse style as well as some funk.  As an artist, he debut on the scene in 2010 with his CD titled The Purpose Project an album that would later pave the way to his 2012 album Breakthrough. It followed Limitless in 2015. In 2017 Vaughn released his 4th record titled Bona Fide. This year his new album is Supreme, released on Trippin’n Rhythm.

Vaughn takes pride in being able to write and produce most of his music. “I want to be known as a great writer and producer just as much as I am an artist”. As Vaughn’s recording catalog continues to grow he still wants to continue to redefine the lead bassist role in the smooth jazz genre.
