"Featured Artist: Edgar Wallace Jr."

Detroit area saxophonist-keyboardist Edgar Wallace Jr. brings the Motown influence to smooth jazz with his debut CD "On The Beach". Wallace shows not only his instrumental savvy, but shows he is a good writer as well Except for one track, Wallace penned the tracks with a special kind of flavor that shows his Detroit roots.
One thing that I liked about "On The Beach" is that Wallace does not try to oversell himself. However, there is a kind of quiet passion that he has in his playing. The songs Stolen Moments and Take My Hand bring this kind of passion out. However, Wallace can bop out with the best of them. Chene Park and Overdrive show Wallace's driving side that is still powerful, but has a softer edge that makes the CD very listenable.
"On The Beach" shows not only Edgar Wallace Jr.'s Motown influences, but the influence of late saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. with both those influences, "On The Beach" proves that Motown can meet the sound of Philadelphia on a smooth level. Wallace has a winner.

Still working on that hot first release.



The musical journey begins with a hot Single Release of a cover tune by Darryl Hall & John Oates entitled I Cant Go For That along with a smoking music video. Modern synth sounds, lush background vocals, and pop beats intertwine with the vocal like quality of Edgars Alto sax on this track.
Saxophonist Edgar Wallace Jr. is from the Metropolitan Detroit, Michigan area. Hes also a writer, producer, commercial print model, actor and video director.
Edgar has performed as a lead instrumentalist for various corporate and public events throughout the country; among those events were concert openings for Earth Wind & Fire, Najee, Roy Ayers, David Benoit, Jean Lucponty, Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons to name a few.
My goal is to convey a musical story to the listener that moves their heart through a range of emotions from song to song.
Edgars previous nationally distributed c.d. entitled On The Beach was self- produced and written. It is available on iTunes as well other digital outlets.
