THURS AUG 16, 2007 7:30PM BIRCHMERE MUSIC HALL 3701 MT VERNON AVE, ALEXANDRIA, VA TICKETS: $35 Steve Cole’s solo career began in earnest after his first solo album, 1998’s “Stay Awhile” turned out to be a smooth jazz sensation, featuring a pair of #1 NAC smashes, “When I Think Of You,” and “Say It Again,” as well as the top 5 hit, “Where The Night Begins.” The success of this debut album culminated at the 2000 Oasis Smooth Jazz Awards where Steve was the recipient of the Prism Award for Best New Artist. Cole followed the record’s success by performing and recording frequently, both as band leader and featured guest, with such artists as Boz Scaggs, Junior Wells, Brian Culbertson, Waymon Tisdale, KMFDM, Rick Braun, Peter White, Larry Carlton, and Jeff Lorber. Steve Cole’s newest album, “TRUE,” is his fifth major label release. With plenty of funk, R&B, soul, and jazz influences, Cole effortlessly bridges the gap between instrumental virtuosity, seamless ensemble playing, and a high-caliber creative chemistry that runs the stylistic gamut in what’s regarded as his finest album yet.

Hey everyone! Found something really great, and wanted to talk about it. Chicago saxophonist Steve Cole recently released his 5th CD, “True” which I think is by far one of my favorites from his catalog. I’ve been listening to “Metro” and his new song that I just heard on the radio “Take Me” which are all fabulous examples of smooth jazz sax – Steve really brings back the funk in this new release!! You can hear a few tracks from his CD at: http://www.myspace.com/stevecole Anyone else here a sax/Steve Cole fan?
