Rich Chorn All Stars
Rich's latest venture, his third CD, is a cooperative with former gospel diva Nadine Rae, who the Chesapeake Music Guide calls "a guaranteed show stopper",and an all star lineup of Rich's favorite musicians and friends, thus forming the Rich Chorné All Stars. Along with the gospel tinted vocals of Nadine Rae is an assortment of R & B styles, funk, and rock. Mid-Atlantic favorite, Tommy Lepson, added his soulful vocals, keyboard styling, production skills, and relentless encouragement to make this CD possible. Jeff Muller also contributed far beyond the good bass lines as overall co-producer. Annapolis vocalist Meg Murray makes a vocal guest appearance along with harpist Choo Choo Charlie Williams. Keyboardist and Persuaders bandleader, Jimmy Orr also provides a cameo while Cesar Venegas rounds out the percussion on congas. Let's not forget Jay Turner's bass on Don't Leave Me Hangin'. Drummers - Gary Crockett and Reinhardt Schmidt round out the All Star Line up. Here is the track info: 1. Thinking About It (Rae/Chorné) 2. Calling On Me (Carter) 3. Love Power (Chorné/Muller) 4.
