Up Close & Personal is excited to welcome back to the show trumpeteer Joey Sommerville. Hang with us as we catch up with Joey and talk about and listen to tracks from his brand new release "Overnight Sensation". Trumpeteer Joey Sommerville's musical essence lies in the Baptist church. ?When I was a teenager, I would judge the caliber of my playing by the number of people in the congregation who ‘got happy'. If you aren't touching the listener's soul, then you aren't really playing music. Soul communication is the key.? He has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including mega-rock group Phish. He was the featured instrumental soloist on the Cirque de Soleil's Grammy-nominated and Juno Award winning album, Alegria. In 2001, he scored a Gavin Top 20 Contemporary Jazz hit as a writer/producer with Bob Baldwin for the single ?Business Call?. In 2006, Joey took his turn as a featured soloist on Hidden Beach Recording's ?Unwrapped Volume 4?. He produced bassist/vocalist Rhonda Smith's ?RS2? which features Prince, Sheila E. and gospel great, Fred Hammond. The album made the 2007 Grammy Ballot and was voted one of the 10 best albums of the year by Music Magazine (Japan). In 2007, Joey started The Smooth Jazz After Dark Series at Sambuca Jazz Café in Atlanta. The Series featured Joey and his group performing with a special guest.
