Soulful Twang (from the album Country Soulful Jazzy)
Musically, there is a lot going on inside Soulful Twang. The title to their recent release, Country Soulful Jazzy, turns the wheel a sampling of the musical styles found on the album. Musical genres are a moving target for the recording, the common ground being the dance floor as Soulful Twang switch up mood and melody like light refracting off the mirrored ball spinning above Country Soulful Jazzy. The album heads south of the border on a Mexicali horn and percussion in “The Soul of Country (The Soulful Groove Mix)”, kicks open honky tonk doors with “Back Porch Swing (Fiddle Mix)”, mellows in low-light rhythms for “Wrapped in Your Arms”, and lets a church piano lead the way into “I’ll See You Again in Heaven”.
Saxophone, trumpet, fiddle, mandolin, guitars, and piano are part of the backing band for Soulful Twang, creatively led by founder Misz (The Groove Producer). It was a mission that propelled Misz, who felt that ‘I wanted to do something musically, where I could introduce the world to music that was country, soulful and jazzy all on the same project. I wanted the name of the band to represent the music and the performances of what we do, which is a little country, a little soul and a little jazz. And when you put all those things together, you have a country soulful jazzy vibe. I call it soulful twang’. Country Soulful Jazzy fulfills all the musical wishes the band had going in to the studio. The album steps high, moving uptown for a “Saturday Night Stroll” and tenderly offers its hand as sax riffs turn slowly for “May I Have This Dance for a Lifetime” as Soulful Twang spice up “Good Times on the Bayou” with a hint of Zydeco, pound out a beat that translates into “I’m Ready for Anything”, and fire up the fiddle to announce “Welcome to the Party”.
