A Review of ShaShaty’s Brighter Day

On March 3, 2015, saxophonist ShaShaty will be celebrating the release of his sixth album, Brighter Day on the newly formed A.H.I. Records. The album features the talents of Steve Oliver, Will Donato, Spyro Gyra, and Taiwanese vocalist Usay Chu.

With eleven tracks ranging from the romantic ballads “My Heart Yours” and “I’m Always Near” to the Indian motif in “Mumbai” and the funky “Let’s Go!”, Brighter Day is ShaShaty’s first original release in several years.

Stand Out Tracks

“Brighter Day,” the title track from the album features an uplifting and spirited arrangement with ShaShaty on alto sax. The saxophonist didn’t stick to just one voice on the album, opting to record alto, soprano, and tenor and showcase his diversity as an instrumentalist.

“Dream Ride,” the single from the album, hit radio stations this past month. It opens with a catchy bass riff, guitar swells, and a horn section with ShaShaty easing listeners in with a few fills before settling into the verse.
