Guitarist Dan Haedicke To Release In All The Ways On June 24

Kwality Records is set to release In All the Ways by guitarist Dan Haedicke on June 24th. The album is available now for pre-order on iTunes and Google Play and includes the instant gratification track "In All the Ways" featuring Tondrae Kemp. The official album release show will take place on Friday, June 24th at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3 at 8:30pm.

Dan Haedicke is a superior guitarist whose melodic brand of jazz, which is both creative and accessible, is well featured on his debut recording as a leader, In All the Ways. Two years ago, the guitarist formed the DH4, a group that also includes trumpeter Indofunk Satish, bassist Everett Boyd and drummer Doron Lev. For their first CD In All the Ways, the DH4 is joined by keyboardist Robert Knowles, Sean Schulich on flute, and singers Sun Singleton and Tondrae Kemp with a guest spot for altoist Lakecia Benjamin.

Of the new CD, Dan says, "I wanted to write songs for the album that had melodies that listeners would take away with them." His seven originals on In All the Ways contain many hummable melodies, concise and memorable solos from Dan, Satish, Knowles and Schulich, and an inventive use of the singers on several of the selections. While at times a little reminiscent of the classic CTI recordings of George Benson and Hubert Laws, Dan Haedicke's brand of melodic grooving Latin and Brazilian jazz is very much his own. The melodies of "Aquamarino, " "Dajo, " "If the Stars" will stay in one's mind long after the music is over. The groove-oriented "In All the Ways, " the funky strut "October, " the bluish "Nola Shout" and the rockish "Fenix" are among the many highlights of this highly enjoyable CD.
