Alvin Clayton Pope feat. Nils – Paraiso

Categories: Featured Music

Composer, keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist Alvin Clayton Pope named his 2008 independently released debut CD Rise of the Phoenix but that was just the start of an exciting solo career which reaches even greater creative heights on his upcoming release Soul of Man. Unlike many urban contemporary jazz artists who stick with the same dynamics from track to track, Pope draws from a wide array of influences throughout the ten tracks, including old school R&B, soul ballads, funk and Brazilian music. While he showcases the keyboard as his primary instrument when he does live performances, the multi-talented performer also plays alto sax on the opening track “You Remind Me” and “At The End of the Day” and handles lead vocals on a cover version of Bobby Womack’s “A Woman’s Gotta Have It.” He also plays guitar on “Inside My Love”.
