Nia: Purpose

The Steven McGill Project

Afro-Cuban Jazz/World Beat Jazz

New improvisational music from from the East Los Angels band. While continuing to rework jazz standards the band offers some new directions with the songs "Lost One" (based on John Coltrane's A Love Supreme) and "Give A Little More Love" both of which could be considered "protest" songs as they deal with some of our society's problems, which is not common for a jazz band to do, but is something that is needed if we are to make jazz viable again. If you are looking for something "NEW" this is it!!!!! From the first note until the last this is a journey you don't want to miss. If you like Afro-Cuban drumming, jazz, rock guitar, vocals, reeds and keys this CD is for you!!!!!
