|ZO… (USA) - group |
Life Records recording artists, ZO… (dzo-ay') is comprised of six talented musicians from the Philadelphia/South Jersey area whose melodic compositions produce extraordinarily compelling music. Their smooth yet funky grooves have incredible energy that instantly connects them with audiences and gets them out of their seats! This lively group quickly became an integral part of the Philly jazz scene and recently headlined the Recording Academy's Philadelphia Chapter Spotlight event. ZO… has captivated audiences beyond the Philly/South Jersey area with their infectious rhythms and have opened for: Mindy Abair, Keb Mo, Phil Perry, Jeff Kashiwa and jazz flautist Sherry Winston. Members of ZO… include: saxophonist, Reggie Harris, keyboardist Cleveland Belin, Jr., guitarist Ronald Segers, drummer David Ferebee; bassist H. Maurice Fonville and percussionist/trumpeter Bolivar "Chico" Guadalupe - all of which contribute to the original songwriting and vocals. Their newly released third CD, aptly titled Let's Fly, is a high spirited project with instantly compelling melodies over tight rhythms. The smooth balance of lead instruments between Harrisí sizzling emotional sax and Segers' cool and crisp, yet often blistering electric guitar draws the listener in and keeps them engaged from start to finish.
