"Soundbox - The Monty Casper Project"

“Soundbox” is a great smooth jazz/instrumental pop album from The Monty Casper Project. British Columbia multi-instrumentalist Monty Casper plays all of the instruments on this album, showing his tremendous piano talent, as well as his crafty work on drums, guitar, and horns. The songs are all instrumental and inspired by classic pop instrumentals of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s from the likes of Herb Alpert and George Benson. The songs themselves are all Monty Casper originals, though he draws from the aforementioned pop instrumentalists to give the songs a certain timelessness to them. “Soundbox” is well-produced, and the entire album sounds professional, the instrumentation clean and well-layered. “Marimba Coffee Break” has a solid arrangement with a rhythmic drum beat and acoustic guitar in the background and skillful marimba work at the forefront. “Random Thoughts” shows Casper’s prowess as a pianist and has a great timeless sound to it. “Searchlight” features the unique sound of the harpsichord and nice drum work. Overall, “Soundbox” is a solid effort that any fan of smooth jazz or ‘60s to ‘80s instrumental pop will surely enjoy.

Bio

This side project was produced as a journey into the world of instrumental music as I have a love of the instrumentals of the 60's - 80s. It was a love cultivated when I took formal piano training starting in 1966. I was learning strictly classical music during those early years, but I also had a love of the popular tunes of the times and wanted to learn them as well. Those tunes included the instrumentals of artists such as Herb Alpert, Acker Bilk, Sergio Mendes and others. It's quite a departure from my main musical interest and former full time occupation of playing Hard Rock/Top 40 tunes but it was a project I wanted to try and to finish. The result is the March 2008 released CD "Soundbox". (The song "Majorca" was a Semi-Finalist in the 2008 UK Songwriting Contest). This was followed by the release of the holiday single "Memories Of Christmas". In 2009, The Monty Casper Project released "Sunset Smooth", a new collection of originals available in digital format. The third release "Events" was unleashed on the world in 2012 which has a electronic soundscape feel to it.
