We have been digging Damien Escobar for a while now. When you look at the landscape of Smooth Jazz and Nu Jazz, you have the “regular instruments,” including Sax, Bass, Piano, Trumpet, Guitar, etc. If you have not heard of Mr. Escobar, he plays the violin to get his groove on! He considers himself “crossover violin” as his style encompasses Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop and Classical in addition to Jazz.
Escobar started out in a duo called Nuttin’ But Strings with his brother. They competed and took third place on the TV show America’s Got Talent. Damien had ventured out on his own, and he has been entertaining audiences ever since.
Check out this track from his latest album, Boundless. It is called Get Up And Dance:
Here are a couple of other tracks that I think you will like.
Good stuff, right?
Escobar will be on tour throughout 2018, so be sure to go out and see the show!
