NEW TO THE LISTENING LOFT : Travis Rogers Music

With credits that include everyone from Lady Gaga and Brian McKnight to Missy Elliot and Chaka Khan, Travis Rogers brings a deep history as a sound engineer to his emergence as a buoyantly melodic Smooth Jazz composer and guitarist. Rogers has been the man behind many of Stanley Clarke’s recordings, and has also worked with the late George Duke - so it’s natural that Rogers launches his consistently infectious album AIR PLAY with a crisp, electric romp through “Sweet Baby.” But that’s just the start of the thoughtful and spirited fun, as Rogers grooves sensually through the lush acoustic title track single, the sweetly reflective “Loving You” and the breezy acoustic soul of “It’s You.” The inventive guitarist follows the eleven studio tracks with live versions of two tracks from a previous album. Tracks from Rogers’ perfectly titled set will indeed be receiving substantial AIR PLAY! ~ Jonathan Widran

Travis Rogers - Sweet Baby

Ff670b89-2f72-4573-b507-f400f8e62ff5

Although guitarist Travis Rogers may be a new name on the smooth jazz scene, for those in the know his name is synonymous with the band The Starlights with whom he played for ten years.  Travis has also worked with a veritable who’s who of contemporary music including Lady Gaga, Brandy, Brian McKnight, Montell Jordan, Missy Elliott, 50 Cent, Bela Fleck, Chaka Khan and Philip Bailey while as a solo artist he has just released the single ‘Sweet Baby’ on the Roxboro label. 

From quiet beginnings it quickly establishes a cool mid tempo roll that is attractive in the extreme and which holds out great promise for a performer who, in terms of contemporary jazz, has most certainly ‘got it’.

Just in case some of you were not told about this: Look out for the new release from Guitarist Travis Rogers entitled, "For Your Love" - featuring some of the biggest names in the jazz spectrum:; George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White, Victor Wooten, Patrice Rushen, & Chick Corea. The album broke out on April the 15th, 2010 and carries a very smooth, mellow, chilled out mix of tracks for the discerning ear. Mr. Rogers has been around the block in the music industry, working with such notables as Lady Gaga, Tank, Missy Elliot, Brian McKnight - just to name a few.
