Smooth Jazz Virtuoso Andre Delano Releases Second Album "MY SO FINE" August 19, 2008

Inks Distribution Deal With Nu Groove Records Through RED/Sony Distribution

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2008) - Saxophonist Andre Delano, an accomplished musician with a distinctive, original sound, releases his highly anticipated second album "MY SO FINE" on August 19th, distributed through Nu Groove Records. Delano once again commands attention of his fans with 14 original songs that include guest appearances by bassist Byron Miller (Luther Vandross, George Duke), Smooth Jazz pianist Kevin Toney (The Blackbyrds), trumpeter Greg Adams and guitarist Michael Ripoll (Babyface, James Brown, Usher). From the opening note, the Latin-flavored first single 'Sista Caliente,' which means 'hot sista' in Spanish, sets the tone for "My So Fine." The new single is available for preview by visiting Delano's websites: or

Delano's music is described as Smooth Soul, a new genre encompassing an appeal to Smooth Jazz, R&B, and Urban AC. Inspired by Junior Walker, Delano continues his tradition as an instrumentalist and vocalist, effortlessly mixing both successfully. "Junior Walker began as a prolific writer and instrumentalist and it was not until the release of 'What Does It Take' did Walker start believing in his vocal skills and singing on more records," states Delano. "'The Da Da Song' is my Smooth Soul reincarnation of the style of music Walker would make."

Nu Groove Records, re-launched in 2006 by original founder David Chackler in conjunction with RED/Sony Distribution, is set to take Delano's music and career to the next level. "We love Delano's brand of soulful, passion-filled jazz," said Chackler. Nu Groove is proud to bring his music to the masses and introduce him to a new generation of smooth jazz fans."

Darren Strothers, president of 7th Note Entertainment, states, "Andre Delano is the preeminent jazz artist of our generation. With his supreme skills on the saxophone, and one-of-a-kind voice, his talents have to be heard and seen to be believed." Strothers continues, "I am very pleased that Nu Groove believes in his artistry and this project as much as we do."
