Open Your Heart by Geoff Alpert is a Work of Passion and Dedication
Artist reviewed by:
Geoff Alpert is truly one of the most remarkable musicians in the smooth jazz scene today. He took a 30 year hiatus from music to be an amazing father and husband and found his way back after the untimely death of his wife. His music gained a deep emotional tone and has culminated with his debut album, “Open Your Heart.” It is a beautiful collection of songs that highlights tones of smooth jazz, Latin, R&B, funk and even hints of pop. The genre fusion creates a highly accessible work that anybody can appreciate.
It also highlights the often-overlooked trombone. It’s great to see the smooth jazz trombone in the foreground and exciting to hear that solo lines Alpert has written. One highlight of the album is the song “Thinking About You,” which is a musical memento dedicated to his departed mother and wife. It is well worth your time to take a listen.
You can listen to the album on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.
