Ronald's newest release of 2006 is Love Prevails. It is a Nu Jazz oriented genre with a mixture of contemporary jazz mixed with hinted spices of R & B. It blends perfectly to match the moods when loves goes all right and when love goes all wrong. The instrumentality of the musicians is superb as is the songwriting. As a writer, Ronald is not afraid to reach out and grab true jazz chords by the horns. From there, he gently infuses these statuesque, bold, chords into a harmonic submission which makes for an earful of audible pleasures that delights the educated listener to the ecstasy of musical pleasures. There are no excuses to be made in the music where you need to be afraid. It's time for a change in this idiom, and this CD has totally made the change.
It's All About Love by Ronald Turner And The Fashion Statement is the 2003 Smoothie Award winner for being the 19th most played CD of independents on the Smoothjazz.com network.
Ronald Turner and The Fashion Statement Band is a professional, clean-cut group of musicians that give their musical best to put joy in the minds and hearts of our listeners through deeply felt creativity. Our group was established in 1990 as a jazz/funk ensemble. We consist of musically well-educated instrumentalists utilizing saxophones, keyboards, electric bass, and drums. We play a variety of music ranging from smooth jazz, contemporary/straight ahead jazz to funk and blues. Each player in the group is a multi-talented musician having played with world-renowned artists like Dizzy Gillespie to contemporary artist Maxwell.
The CD, It?s All About Love, is a sexy blend of smooth jazz and love songs, rhythm flavored Latin composites and influential overtones of funk spiced with R & B.
