While known to the music world and artists who may live and work here, such as Michael McDonald, Vanessa Williams, Kenny Loggins, Larry Carlton, and Victor Wooten, these session players have mainly flown under the radar to the national and international audience.
No more. Producer, keyboardist, and Creative Soul Jazz president Eric Copeland brings together the top names in Nashville’s studio session world like bassist Gary Lunn, guitarist Mark Baldwin, and drummers John Hammond and Brian Fullen, (as well as over a dozen more players) showing the world the jazzy side of their amazing talents.
Player A’s first CD “Our Own Devices” was released nationally in May of 2011, with a national radio and promotional campaign of the single “Coming On” marching directly into the Top 30 of the Smooth Jazz chart.
Their newest EP "Devices, Techniques, & Mechanisms" is a six-song set of new tunes and remixes of some from "Our Own Devices". Featuring not only the Nashville pros of Player A, but also contemporary jazz names like saxophonists Jeff Kashiwa and Marcus Anderson.
