'Bridges' 'Music you can Feel' For those interested, the cut on this track that sounds like BARRY WHITE is #3('If you only Knew'). Warning: 'EXTREMELY' suggestive and seductive lyrics. Young Children should NOT be present when this song is played. Bridges is more than just a CD...It is a means to a higher understanding of achievement...In life we are all subject to the peaks and valleys that tend to hamper our journeys to inner prosperity( and that involves goals, personal relationships and self fulfillment). A bridge, whether physical, mental or spiritual, can grant us access to all the things once determined to be unreachable. This CD is a musical bridge for me to reach you and travel far deeper than just your ear....The music aims to touch your heart and soul without me being there physically. This CD embodies the notion that all songs on a CD can be of an entirely different nature and style yet still have a great impact on all who expect to categorize it. You are extended this invitation to check out any tune(s) you desire. This CD is not just meant to be heard....It is meant to be experienced and felt. Thank you for checking it out... Brett Jolly is a multi-talented songwriter/musician/vocalist. For those of you who think it is NOT humanly possible for any one man to actually hit vocally the highest note in Minnie Riperton's 'Loving you' and in that SAME phrase hit a note that is actually LOWER than Barry White, then you really need to check out this musical compilation. Jolly's vocal range is outright incredible, and as you listen to each tune you will find it hard to believe that he is actually the same singer for all of the tunes (except for 'Chiquita' which was sung by Tony Patrick, but written by Jolly). Also, each song is diverse in style, which means that there is something for everyone. 'Bridges' allows Jolly to cross over from the typical stereoytping of artists (in other words he will NOT be categorized): Music is expression, and expression comes in ALL forms...Take the journey, expand your mind, and prepare for a musical arthroscopy. Brett Jolly is a very accomplished musician who has performed with a plethora of notables in the music industry. Some of the vocalists include Melba Moore, Vesta Williams, Eddie Money, Tom Petty, Peabo Bryson, The Delphonics, The Stylistics, The Futures, The Ebony's, Lee Andrews and the Hearts, Bobby Rydell, The O'Jays, Dexter Wansel, Glen Jones, Kathy Sledge, Grover Washington Jr., Gerald Albright, Alexander O'Neal, Cherelle, The Sounds of Blackness, Jesse Powell, Solo, Da Youngsterz, Lords of the Underground, James Ingram, Angie Stone, Terry Ellis, Jean Carn, Norman Connors, McFadden and Whitehead, The Jones Girls, Dru Hill, Holly Robinson ( yes, she does sing), Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Billy Paul, Brian McKnight, Chaka Khan, Gerald Levert, Earth, Wind and Fire( yes, we know they already have a bass player), Teddy Pendergrass, Celine Dion and Usher. Bridges is a work of diversity, Here is a little info on some of the tunes: 'You're the One'-This is the ULTIMATE wedding song. Everyone who has heard this song has loved it, and it can arguably be labeled as the 'perfect' wedding tune. 'If You only Knew'-EXTREMELY suggestive and seductive lyrics....CAUTION: You may not want to play this song around young children. The words leave very little to the imagination and while there is NO profanity in it, it is VERY impressionable....If you loved the sounds of Barry White, then you should be truly intersted in this tune. 'Bridges to Peace'- A song written when there was a terrorist train bombing in Spain that was close to where Jolly was performing in France. Jolly was performing with Billy Paul at the time, and after the blast he decided to write a song for World Peace while he was still in France. This tune has a young groove with children singing the chorus. You must hear it. EXCELLENT tune for promoting Peace..... 'Juggernaut'- A highly powerful and driving Rock tune with heavy political overtones.... This tune comes on strong and hits you musically as well as lyrically. 'Chiquita'- A song written by Jolly (Brazilian style music), but sung by Tony Patrick, written about Jolly's experience when he performed in Brazil. If you have ever been to Brazil and seen it's beautiful resources, this song will surely take you back. 'Love Go Round'- Just a beautiful love song.... A ballad that will warm your heart when you hear it. 'Somethin'-VERY funky tune with high 'James Brown' pitches in it. If this song doesn't move you in some way, you are most likely dead. 'Reggae in the Snow'-A very simple reggae song that makes no sense whatsoever, but you will surely find yourself singing the chorus over and over throughout the day. 'Peace Angel'-A song about loss, a song from the heart...If you have ever lost anyone physically, spiritually or emotionally then this is the song to hear. I'll say a Little Prayer'-Gospel tune, simple but direct. 'Destiny'-Dance tune with jazz overtones. Funky with music quality.... 'Je t'aime Je t'aime'-A love song written while Jolly was in his hotel room in Bordeax, France...This song features only bass and vocal, but it is a marvelous production. Note from Brett Jolly: Thank you so much for checking out my 'musication'....So far the responses have been overwhelming and I am honored that you are willing to experience my musical story. I only ask that you listen from the heart....If my music/message can touch at least one person out there, then my work will not have been in vain. Peace and Love to you all...from the heart and soul of Brett Jolly....
