While pursuing a degree at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina, Rodney continues to develop his gift of music. Unwearingly in his work ethic, the young Rodney Shelton started touring the east coast with the show band “Time Square” and only after a few years of touring, Rodney moved into his calling as a songwriter/producer creating hundreds of songs for signed artist.


In the early 90’s after meeting with the Legendary Music promoter/manager “Howard Rosen”, that Rosen encounter lead to another encounter with the Legendary producer Stewart Levine and Jolie Jones (daughter of Quincy Jones) in king a production deal.


With the legends at work, shopping “the demo” to top record labels, the band “Curio” signed a deal with Motown records. During the recording of their album, the band unique sound, the band performed in the HIT movie “Another 48 hours” featuring Eddie Murphy, doing three songs on the movie soundtrack.


While signed to Motown, Rodney met R&B singer “Keith Washington” and along with Marsha Jenkins wrote the NOW platinum record “Kissing You”, which after 20 years is still rocking the airwaves!

Dwan Bosman’s Birthday Bash sets the tone for the evening as he displays a collage of Jazz forces, flirting with Hard Bop, Bebop, Funk and Free Jazz with attributes of a Straight-Ahead Jazz performance. 

Dwan Bosman

LISTEN


WEBSITE 
Dwan Bosman began courting the saxophone at the age of 15, inspired by a deep rooted tutelage reaching back to his grandfather.


Initially playing the clarinet & bass clarinet at the age of 12, his interest was to be classically trained, but at the age of 15, listened to “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane and became infatuated with straight ahead Jazz.


Charlie Parker, Lloyd Smith, Sonny Stitt, The Bosman Twins, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, Grover Washington Jr, Miles Davis, Kenny Garrett, David Sanborn and GiGi Gryce have been his most poignant influences molding the vivid sound he produces.


This infatuation turned love affair with straight ahead Jazz continues, nevertheless he is limitless and versatile in his talent with an eclectic mix of genres played. His album “Sax Attack” released in 2013 exhibits his versatility and his single “For Eternity” released in 2015 is an “unsung” allegiance to love and the union of two people for a lifetime.        


​Dwan Bosman is the embodiment of live performance, having done so for 25+ years across the nation and abroad, performing is like breathing to this soulful saxophonist and his showmanship is remarkable. Performing regularly at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for a program entitled “The Sounds of Southern Hospitality” his passion resonates to everyone he serenades whether a disgruntled infant, all the way through to the most mature of crowds.


With his exceptional ability to play and entertain any gender, age group, race and nationality, he has established himself as a benchmark in the city of Atlanta as a premier saxophonist.


Whether functioning as part of the cast of a corporate band, performing with a headliner, or being the headliner himself, he has traveled all paths of the musician walk. Dwan Bosman will take you on a musical excursion not to be forgotten.

Initially playing the clarinet & bass clarinet at the age of 12, his interest was to be classically trained, but at the age of 15, listened to “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane and became infatuated with straight ahead Jazz.


Charlie Parker, Lloyd Smith, Sonny Stitt, The Bosman Twins, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, Grover Washington Jr, Miles Davis, Kenny Garrett, David Sanborn and GiGi Gryce have been his most poignant influences molding the vivid sound he produces.


This infatuation turned love affair with straight ahead Jazz continues, nevertheless he is limitless and versatile in his talent with an eclectic mix of genres played. His album “Sax Attack” released in 2013 exhibits his versatility and his single “For Eternity” released in 2015 is an “unsung” allegiance to love and the union of two people for a lifetime.        


​Dwan Bosman is the embodiment of live performance, having done so for 25+ years across the nation and abroad, performing is like breathing to this soulful saxophonist and his showmanship is remarkable. Performing regularly at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for a program entitled “The Sounds of Southern Hospitality” his passion resonates to everyone he serenades whether a disgruntled infant, all the way through to the most mature of crowds.


With his exceptional ability to play and entertain any gender, age group, race and nationality, he has established himself as a benchmark in the city of Atlanta as a premier saxophonist.


Whether functioning as part of the cast of a corporate band, performing with a headliner, or being the headliner himself, he has traveled all paths of the musician walk. Dwan Bosman will take you on a musical excursion not to be forgotten.

Jeff Lorber Trio

By the late 1970s, trailblazing keyboardist/composer/producer Jeff Lorber had become a prominent figure in the new movement known as jazz fusion – a marriage of traditional jazz with elements of rock, R&B, funk and other electrified sounds. Lorber and his band, the Jeff Lorber Fusion, first honed their craft in the Portland, Oregon, club scene and rapidly expanded their reach to a national and international audience via a combination of complex harmonies, unconventional time signatures and compelling rhythms.


In subsequent years, Lorber dropped the term “fusion” from his billing as the movement evolved into what is currently known as contemporary jazz. Still, he continued to explore the innovative, improvisational potential of grafting other musical forms to the jazz idiom.


More than three decades after his earliest recordings, Lorber has come full circle. His new recording,


Hacienda, set for release August 27, 2013, on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group, ®


revisits a sound he helped pioneer. The album takes the experiment that he started with his GRAMMY - nominated CD, Now is the Time, and his 2012 album, Galaxy, up a notch with 11 exciting and energetic new compositions performed by some of the biggest names in jazz today. Co-produced by Lorber and bassist/composer Jimmy Haslip, Hacienda also features saxophonist Eric Marienthal, a longtime collaborator with Lorber and his collective. Other guests include premier jazz-rock violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Dave Weckl, and an impressive cadre of other stellar players.


Lorber’s music reaches a new level by crystallizing jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms with some killer melodies that will certainly translate to live performance. Obviously, time spent touring together has made Lorber, Haslip and Marienthal into a tight unit, which is evident from this latest recording.


Stretching the envelope has been Lorber’s strategy from the very beginning. Born in Philadelphia in 1952, Lorber began playing piano when he was just four years old. By his teen years, he had hooked up with several local R&B bands, but his tastes trended more toward jazz when he studied at Berklee College of Music.
