More than a decade in the making, Contemporary Jazz composer Cal Harris Jr. is finally set to paint the world in vibrant colors with the release of his debut album Inside Out. Inside Out illustrates the story of Harris’s own unique background with an eclectic marriage of R&B, jazz, funk, soul, blues, and world music. His story, his gift, and his brand are poised to take the world by surprise with an extraordinary approach to Contemporary Jazz. =========================
The mission started in Houston, Texas when Steve began playing baritone horn at age 14. His first idol was legendary J.J. Johnson. Throughout high school he performed with the award winning Forest Brook High School Stage Band, and then continued his training at the prestigious Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he majored in Jazz Studies from 1980-1983. While at Howard, Steve began to seriously study the Jazz masters, participating in events such as the Thelonious Monk Memorial Concert series featuring Grady Tate, Charlie Rouse, Wallace Roney; and workshops with musical greats like Lionel Hampton. He moved to Los Angeles in 1991 to pursue a solo career, and to continue perfecting his craft.
Steve's a dynamic, high energy, multidimensional artist whose skills as a musician, songwriter, and producer have elevated his talent to another level. His repertoire covers everything from R&B to Latin Salsa to Afro Cuban Jazz and he has shared the stage and studio with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including the Ray Charles World Tour (1985), Horace Tapscott, The Crusaders, Barry Manilow, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Temptations, The O'Jays, The Four Tops, Bobby Matos, Babyface, Eric Benet, 13 Cats, Patti Labelle, Sheila E, Alicia Keys, Macy Gray, Beck, and Ziggy Marley.
Steve's horn playing, coupled with his Marsalis-like looks landed him an appearance in the 1995 Denzel Washington thriller, "Devil In A Blue Dress." Steve also appeared in the motion picture "Spider-Man 3" as a bandleader in a jazz scene. He has appeared on American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, BET Awards, The GRAMMYs, NAACP Awards and many other shows and films.
Eric Leone’s objective as an R & B smooth Jazz Artist is to have his music touch the hearts and souls of people all over the world. =========================

============================================================= THE MUSIC OF SONGSTRESS TERI TOBIN
Performing demos and background vocals for artists such as Joe, Chico DeBarge, Coolio, Chante Moore, Korea-based Uptown, Coco Lee and Mica Paris has prepared her for her moment to shine as a solo artist. She also appears on James Tobin's sophomore release entitled " Late Nite" and co-wrote the title track. Upon the release of the independent film Fathers of the Sport, one of the songs she co-wrote can be heard as a backdrop to this powerful film. Although most of her influences are male singers like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and Donny Hathaway, Tobin is reminiscent of the sultry sounds and richness of R&B or Jazz singers of yesterday. ===============================================================
