Nataly’s Corner brings you music by contemporary & smooth jazz musician, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Brian Culbertson: I don’t know what took me so long to include Brian’s music on the Channel. I think I hampered myself by the fact of knowing that there are so many brilliant-made music videos of Brian’s music already out on Youtube. But what it really comes down to is that Brian Culbertson is a very dynamic jazz musician and any artist who can take a smooth R&B song, turn it into a sensual jazz piece and have Hewett do the vocals, gets my attention!
Brian Culbertson’s bio states that he was really “musically-skilled’ as a child, having learned to play the piano at 8, drums at 9, trombone at 10, and bass in 7th grade. No doubt his early childhood contributes to him classified as a skilled multi-instrumentalist. But it was in college where he really started focusing on his music and working on CDs. Brian was influenced by funk music and often worked as a composer and arranger with other musicians in R&B [Maurice White, Ledisi, Bootsy Collins, Faith Evans, and Kenny Lattimore, to name a few] and jazz [Boney James, Peter White, Jeff Lorber, and Richard Elliott, to name a few]. Over the years, Brian has written and produced over 25 #1 contemporary smooth singles on the R&R, Gavin and Billboard Radio charts; and has released 14 albums, with his most recent album, “Another Long Night Out”, released in Feb 2014. His awards & nomination credits are massive and include a 2012 NAACP Image Award nomination for Best Jazz Album; 2012 Soul Train Award nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Artist; Winning Six (6) 2011 Oasis Smooth Jazz Awards for Best Entertainer; 2010 Canadian Smooth Jazz Award for Best International Artist; and 2010 American Smooth Jazz Award for Best Keyboardist.
