Master Musician Producer, Musical Director. Joel Gaines
Meet Joel Gaines. Listening to Joel's music is like tasting Gumbo for the very first time. There are so many delicious flavors happening all at once! A quarter cup of World music, blended with a pinch of Rock and a dash of Pop, and all held together with the main seasoning of Contemporary Jazz! The Japanese have a word that perfectly describes Joel's music and style. The word is Oishii, which means, "Delicious!"
The keyboard virtuosity of Joel Gaines will quickly become evident, but what will come as a most pleasant surprise is the fact that Joel also has a warm and inviting vocal style, often compared to that of vocalist like Al Jarreau and Bobby McFerrin.
Yes, Joel has toured around the world, accompanying musical giants such as Gladys Knight, Anita Baker, Ronnie Laws, Barry White, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, Tony Orlando and Dawn, Melba Moore, The Platters, Sister Sledge, Bobby Vinton, The Temptations, Jean Carn, Billy Paul, Vesta Williams, Ali Woodson (former lead vocalist of The Temptations), Michael Wycoff, The Coasters and Cheryl Lynn. Joel has also enjoyed great success working in the fields of Blues and Gospel, playing with the legendary Lowell Fulson, the inspirational and dynamic Winans and many, many more.
Joel currently plays keyboards for the legendary group known as The Jazz Crusaders but has made his rounds with world class jazz and smooth jazz artists such as Kenny G, Rick Braun, Brian Culberson, The Crusaders, Ronnie Laws, Jon Lucien, Bob Mamet, Eric Marienthal, Bryan Savage, Bennie Golson, Tootie Heath, Clifford Jordon, Bennie Maupin, Alphonse Mouson, Flora Purim, Karen Briggs, Eric Darius, and famed Jazz violinist, Noel Webb.
Joel describes himself first and foremost an innovative and creative Contemporary Jazz artist, who writes and performs engagingly melodic pieces that will still be dancing in your head, and in your heart, long after his performance has ended.
And, days later, when his vocals and melodies are still lingering in your mind, you will be happy that you have the latest Joel Gaines CD "Just the Way I'm Feeling" to take you right back to a wonderful night, and a wonderful performance.
