Mike Murray New Album Summer
Skillful song craftsman Mike Murray is an independent keyboardist, composer and producer from Montclair, New Jersey who artfully bridges the gap between urban Smooth Jazz and Chill-Out genres. Fans of Bob James/Fourplay, Paul Hardcastle, Alex Bugnon and Hiroshima will feel right at home with Mike’s expanding repertoire and unique musical “style.”
Mike released his first CD, Skyline in December, 2007. His eleventh and latest CD Summer, released June 20, 2016 transports listeners through sunny, relaxing, seductively funky grooves on a Joy Ride from In Belize to Near Calcutta to an Antigua Sunrise and Back to Natal feat Leah Whitehorse.
“I challenge myself to outdo myself each and every release so Summer, I think, is another milestone CD – thanks, in large part, to two new vocal contributors; KCentric and Leah Whitehorse. There is no better reward than hearing from listeners who’ve been transported by my work. “Music is the one great equalizer and elixir that everyone understands and experiences in their own way. “I hope to continue this musical journey hand in hand with anyone along for the ride.”
