First Impressions Creates Inspirational Experience for Saxophonist Hulon

A new saxophonist is on the rise in contemporary jazz. Hulon, who brings a fresh perspective on jazz with old-school style, will be releasing his debut CD, First Impressions, in February 2010. Produced by Jeff Kashiwa, this CD promises to be a delightful experience with hot grooves and romantic charm.

The first single to go to radio will be the delightful “Sax on the Beach.” A resident of Florida , “Sax on the Beach” is a fun tune written by Jeff Kashiwa for Hulon. Working Kashiwa on the CD was a natural choice for Hulon. “Initially, I hired Jeff to write one song. I was so impressed that I hired him to produce the entire album and write many of the songs. The making of this record was pure joy for me. Working with Jeff Kashiwa was an incredible experience. His knowledge and talent are definitely an inspiration for me,” said Hulon.

When asked about this new CD and artist, Jeff Kashiwa said, “It's every producer's dream to come across an artist who has 3 qualities: drive to develop their unique voice, enthusiasm for creating music and passion to perform. Hulon possesses all of these qualities. The music on his debut CD reflects many moods to showcase this emerging artist. From the retro soul of War's "Cisco Kid", to the romantic "Follow Me", to the funk of "Sax Machine", Hulon shows he has the stuff to keep you captivated. Enjoy Hulon's debut CD…”
