Nothing Else Feels So Right
Blending a wide variety of musical influences, (to include Jazz, R&B, Rock and Latin genres), Carlos writes and performs his own original music as an American singer/songwriter living in Japan. "Nothing Else Feels So Right" contains 10 original songs that were written and composed by Carlos. And while this debut effort reflects his talent, skill and versatility as a Songwriter, Lyricist, and Composer, it also provides Carlos an opportunity to further develop his talents as a Vocalist. You'll find some great Jazz, R&B, Pop, Rock & Latin-based tunes to fit every musical taste, along with support from some of the BEST professional session artists out of Tokyo, Japan, to include Hirofumi Tokutake on Guitar (Dr. K Project); Akio Suzuki on Saxophone (Misia; Steely Dan; Yoshihiro Kai; George Yanagi & Rainy Wood); 'Pecker' on Latin Percussion (Minami Yoshitaka; Orquesta Del Sol; Bob Marley & The Wailers); and Naoya Hamada on Drums (Dreams Come True; Kinki-Kids; Hi-Fi Set; Garp; and Junichi Inagaki). If you get your hands on this CD and listen to it very closely, I'm sure you'll understand why so many people view Carlos' music as a tasteful resurrection of the classic format found in the late 70's and early 80's from such artists as Marvin Gaye, Michael Franks, Carlos Santana, and Steely Dan. So pick up a copy today, then sit back, crank up your stereo and relax to the smooth, infectious grooves of Carlos J. Saldaña!
