About the Reviewer - Sheila E Ross

As a smooth jazz journalist, I sincerely support the smooth jazz genre, as I adore the sound and recognize the diligence and hard work artists and musicians place into their craft.

  sheila e ross

As an educator, I enjoy working with youth as an English teacher of eight years and see daily the strong embrace students have for music as well.

For this reason, I expose them further to the artistry.  Some students share sincere interests in musical careers so we dive deeper into the life and times of both current and late artists. Like literature, music is personal and shared from the human condition, so there is much to acquire.

Speaking right from the heart of an east coast girl that immediately fell in love with the west coast sound of the early 21st century indisputably grew to love that cool, crisp, inviting, heart-tugging, heart-warming California sound. Honestly speaking, it wasn’t until this west coast vibe reached eastward in the early 2000’s that she began to memorize music for the frit time ever. Today, that same ‘California’ sound (“Play”) continues to echo east, reverberating from the cool-spirited west coast attractive sound of guitarist, Nils Jiptner.

Originally inspired from both rhythm players and funk, this Paul Jackson, Jr. Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple inspired mastermind releases his new CD, simply titled, “Play” on March 16, 2018. Fondly known as Nils, and originally from Munich Germany, he motivates us ‘Straight Down the Line’! It’s fun! It’s inspirational! It’s cool with a Norman Brown ‘West Coast Coolin’ sound. It’s Nil’s Guitar breathing life outward, stimulating us into anther productive day! This is easy! All we have to do is, “just walk the line” (‘Straight Down the Line’). ‘Coast to Coast’ and ‘We Got Love’ launches the twelve track CD with a total of ten tracks written by Nils himself.

Immediately, you hear the sound of Nil’s singing guitar and Gail Johnson’s piano accompaniment which absorbs our attention, picks us up and takes us on a musical journey, ALL YOU CAN DO IS ‘Sway’ with the string section of Dov and the Lovestart Strings. The sound swells soothing, appealing, uplifting, and commands our attention. The absolute perfect vocal trio provides the celebration-sound of newfound love through the voices of Johnny Britt, Eddie Brown and Clydene Jackson. This impeccable trio yields joy, liveliness and illuminates a happy component here, a vocal love-collaboration that comes through crystal clear accompanied by Nil’s guitar!

‘So Get On Up’ and amplify your groove with J-J Horns and Johnny Britt on trumpet, together the two with Nil’s guitar collaborate with accuracy and a beautiful alliance that works! Nil’s singing guitar takes us California-home with ‘Fire of My Heart’, a heart-warming, sweet, tug-on-your-heart tune with the beautiful spirited vocals of Johnny Britt, Clydene Jackson, Kathryn Bostic, Eddie Brown, Emily K and Nils himself, “take me higher’ and “give me your love,” “your my fire, my heart’s desire, give me your love, take me higher.” ^
