FREDA PAYNE PERFORMING AT HERB ALPERT’S VIBRATO GRILL JAZZ Tonight Thursday January 10, 2019 at 7:30pm
Though best known for her 1970 R&B crossover smash hit “Band of Gold,” Freda Payne has always first and foremost been a jazz singer. Now, as iconic in 2014 for her timeless beauty and stage appeal as she is for her artistic versatility, Freda Payne remains among music’s brightest-shining stars.
Her latest album, Come Back To Me Love, marks not only a return to the big band and strings-laden classics from her mid-’60s beginnings with Impulse! but also marks a return to her hometown of Detroit. That makes this 14-song album featuring Grammy® Award-winner Bill Cunliffe’s musical arrangements—from the vibes-kissed Kenny Rankin waltz “Haven’t We Met” to the lonely evening fireplace musings of “Lately”—a beautiful homecoming.
Starting her career with the Jimmy Wilkins Big Band at age 14, Payne went on to perform at the Apollo Theater in Harlem alongside Billy Eckstine, backed by Quincy Jones and His Orchestra, comedian Redd Foxx, and the dance team Coles & Atkins. She also graced the stage with Duke Ellington for two nights in Pittsburgh, after which he composed “Blue Piano” just for her. Asked if much has changed since those first 1963 jazz recordings, she marvels, “In ’63 I was nervous as hell—uptight and pushing too hard to be perfect. This time I felt like I was in heaven. I was in Capitol Records’ Studio A with 40 musicians, singing over impeccable arrangements. I was much more relaxed and secure within myself.” Freda Payne’s training and experience render her a rare vocal artist who is stylistically beyond category.

FREDA PAYNE “THE CLASSICS” (MOTOWN, R&B & JAZZ FAVORITES) AND SPECIAL GUESTS! Show at The Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood - Tonight Friday Oct 19th & Tomorrow Saturday Oct 20th at 8:30pm!
As iconic in 2014 for her timeless beauty and stage appeal as she is for her artistic versatility,Freda Payne remains among music’s and show business’ brightest shining star survivors. Her latest album, Come Back To Me Love (her first for the Artistry Music imprint) marks not only a return to the big band and strings-laden classics from her mid-`60s beginnings with Impulse! but also marks a return to her hometown of Detroit. That makes this 14-song album featuring Grammy® award-winner Bill Cunliffe’s musical arrangements—from the vibes-kissed Kenny Rankin waltz “Haven’t We Met” to the lonely evening fireplace musings of “Lately”—a beautiful homecoming.
“It’s a dream come true,” Payne enthuses with a smile, “Just like in 1968 when I was living in New York seeking my fame and fortune, and ran into Brian Holland of Holland-Dozier-Holland. He told me they had just left Motown and started their own company, Invictus. I flew back to Detroit, signed with them and a year later had a Top 5 record, ‘Band of Gold.’ So releasing this album on Mack Avenue’s Artistry Music imprint is truly serendipitous—a flashback to something really good happening for me at home in Detroit, my good luck charm.” Berry did write those three songs for me. However, they were never released. It was only a few years later she landed her first record deal in New York with ABC Paramont. Her first single was called Slightly Out Of Tune. A song made famous by jazz musician Stan Gretz. The company then put her on their jazz label, Impulse. Visit www.fredapayne.com for more event information.

Check out Coco Lala Records Video Released Debut of "Will You Ever Come Back To Me" - Laladee's House Me Rouge Mix & New Single Release!!!
"Will You Ever Come Back To Me?” was written by Coco Street for a melodic instrumental interlude on Terrence Parker’s 2017 Planet E Release, “God Loves Detroit.” The Lyrics sparked a frenzy of creativity for Coco and Lala. Coco first approached long time collaborator Gareth Dicks (House Of Praise UK). Together they created the drum n bass and dub mixes for this release under the name “Damaged Goods.”
Producer and DJ, Laladee took her version in an entirely different direction. With Coco’s vocals recorded at the Rattle Room in Burbank, CA, the Tech House track, entitled “House Me Rouge,” is an odyssey of layered soundscapes that takes the listener on a sonic journey in four distinct movements. Laladee then took her diverse talents to the forests of Albuquerque, New Mexico where she directed, filmed, and edited the project’s poignant lyric video.
Rounding out the project is Norwegian producer, Dalminjo, who brings his soulful chill vibe with a deep, subby house groove that is sure to pack out the dance floor with Steppers and Hustlers alike. Distributed By Symphonic Distribution - www.symphonicdistribution.com
