Yvonne Coleman, Smooth Jazz 103.1 WLOQ March 2008
This rising star has performed with and been the opening act for superstars like Phil Perry, Glenn Jones, Howard Hewitt, the Rippingtons, Spyro Gyro and many more. NOW it’s Erly’s time to take center stage. “My Life” serves up a nice blend of Smooth Jazz mixed with a twist of R & B and sprinkled with infectious Latin rhythms. With the release of his newest CD you are taken a musical journey that wets your appetite right from the start. You’ll have to take a pause after hearing the first two tracks “Free” and “Mura de Cozumel”, so that you can call your friends to tell them there is some new music that they definitely have got to check out. Light the candles and let “Turn Off The Lights” make an unforgettable night. This 12 track release lets you experience some nice interpretations of great cover tunes like “Fantasy” and “Wishing on A Star” and “Lost Without U”. If you’re looking for a smooth ride, “E-Class” puts you on cruise control for a trip that you won’t forget. Hat’s off to the band and vocalists that make this release well worth listening to. Enjoy all that “My Life” has to offer from an artist who is a wonderful person dedicated not only to his music, but his family and friends as well.
