Hollywood, CA, January 2017 – Jazz recording artist Kari Kirkland has teamed up with four-time Grammy nominee Shelly Berg and multi-Grammy winner and 2010 “Producer of the Year” Gregg Field to cut a new LP at the iconic United Recording in Hollywood. Kirkland, Field and Berg were joined by guitarist Dean Parks and bassist Kevin Axt for the new album, which will be released early summer.
“Kari is a very unique singer coming from a ‘jazz’ background,” explained Field. “She is embracing very contemporary material from artists such as Ludacris and is bringing the material into the Adult Contemporary world. The musicians on the album are Phil Ramone’s rhythm section and it’s always great to come together on a really unique project like this!”
