Five people, alive or dead, I'd like to play music with.

1. Grover Washington Jr., who I consider the father of smooth jazz, is the first jazz artist that I have listened to continuously since I was in the ninth grade. He influenced my decision to have a career in music.

2. Kenny G., because of his unique and creative sounds while playing the saxophone. I have listened to Kenny G. for many years. He has had the most influence on me finding my own uniqueness as I play the soprano saxophone.

3. Najee inspired and inspires me to be creative. I like the way his personality is displayed through his music.

4. David Foster is the greatest in producing music, writing, and not to mention his keyboarding skills. He learned music in school just as I did. I relate well with David Foster's feeling about how important it is to have music taught in schools.

5. Walter Afanasieff is an exceptional songwriter, musician and record producer that I admire. I have followed and studied his career over the years.

With a wide range of musical influences that included Grover Washington, Jr., David Sanborn and Walter Afanasieff, Smooth Jazz Artist Aaron Bing's talent began to shine at an early age. By the time he was 15 years old, he was playing professionally and garnering rave reviews for his soulful soprano saxophone sound. Aaron began opening up for established national artists such as The Temptations, Lenny Williams, Gladys Knight, Jeffrey Osborne, Brian McKnight and Rachelle Ferrell - to name a few. His most notable national recognition was his appearance on 'The Late Show' with David Letterman, as part of a Guinness World Record event to challenge the World Record for the longest held musical note. He was able to hold a single note for over 39 minutes and 40 seconds. Since the release of his new CD titled 'Secret Place', Aaron's music is now being heard on over 40 Smooth Jazz Radio and Internet Stations across the country as reported by www.allthatjazz.com. Offering his own brand of Jazz, Aaron's sound will surely please audiences all over the world!! - www.smoothjazz.eu


Experience the long-winded, smooth and sensual sounds of jazz artist Aaron Bing,” reads his current press bio. That statement veers into unintentional hilarity after you’ve learned a little bit about the saxophonist. A few years ago, Bing scored a gig on Late Show With David Letterman, where he attempted to break the world record for a sustained single note. Notoriously long-winded saxophonist Kenny G held the record until one Vann Burchfield went all Guinness on him at 47 minutes and 6 seconds. Bing didn’t break the record on Letterman’s show, but he did blow on and on for 39 minutes and 40 seconds.

Circular-breathing contests aside, Bing is a talent for sure. His latest CD includes 10 original songs performed by Bing the one-man-band: That’s him you hear on the soprano and alto saxes, along with all the other instruments. Obvious influences include Kenny G, of course, as well as Grover Washington Jr. “After the Storm” and “Without You” are moonlight ballads, while “Into the Light,” “Joyful” and “My Sunshine” have more energy and sass. Give Bing credit for learning his lessons well: This is top-notch independent smooth jazz, well worth repeated listening. And there are a few long-winded notes thrown in, of course.

Bio

Aaron Bing - Secret Place
By Brian Soergel, Jazz Times Magazine, October 2010

Some artists can only exist as opening acts and sidemen for so long before rising to the surface in a glorious sheen that dares one to ignore them. Working the soprano and alto saxes like he is part of those instruments--and playing all other instruments on this project, by the way--Aaron Bing comes to us with Secret Place, this time via Century Records, in a blaze of personality and charm. Having cranked out two other tight albums (Christmas Dream, a compilation of some of the season's favorites--and Always), this cat is no newcomer to smooth jazz, as is clearly evidenced in this production.
Bing may actually be known to many as the artist who appeared on the The Late Show with David Letterman to be recognized for his part in a Guinness World Record challenge. His feat, Holding a note for 39 minutes and 40 seconds! Although that didn't beat the Kenny G 1997 record of 45 minutes, 47 seconds, it certainly should be sufficient for notoriety. Bing also claims proficiency on 20 instruments, excluding the alto and soprano saxes, and is self-taught on 16 of them. I should think this qualifies him as being quite dedicated to his craft.
Using only the freshest of fresh material, Bing exhibits such mastery of the art of composition and combines it with a bouncy, swaying style in places and a sultry pace in others--not unlike that of one of his early influences, Kenny G, as well as one of my favorites, Paul Taylor.
Often, skill and style are lost in the shuffle when joined with material that smacks of mediocrity. No mediocrity here. There is no doubt that this artist's material is at home in the smooth jazz genre, and quite a few of his cuts could easily find their way to mainstream radio's airwaves. Bing's material and style should easily allow him to maintain the tradition of quality smooth jazz in a way that thoroughly pleases all of the common aficionados and inside movers and shakers. Sounding like other artists compliments those other artists, but if you can accomplish the difficult task of establishing a thumbprint, a signature of some sort somewhere in the vastness of this genre, you can consider yourself on the right path. Bing, with his well-conceived compositions and pleasant hooks, should consider himself there.
Oh, make no mistake, visions of Kenny G abound plentifully, but Bing manages to make such references complement him rather than define him. That much is evident in such compositions as "Dominica," a spry, melodic, and fluid piece full of presence and exoticism, and the solid, rhythmic mid-tempo "Joyful," which is quite appropriately named (just listen to the energy and fervor with which Bing expresses himself on this one). Others of note are the beautiful title track, which caresses you with that familiar touch of blue soul and spirit (the alluring strings are subtle yet outstanding in their presence here) and the hot and funky "Keep It Movin'."
Aaron Bing has seized the moment with this release, a moment he and all who follow him will relive over and over again. Like a gently blowing breeze, his sound washes over you with a profound calm, leaving you content and seeking more.
