Soul-jazz saxophonist Reinhold Schwarzwald rides "Sunset" onto The Wave

Single produced by Grammy nominee Patrice Rushen in rotation at influential Los Angeles radio station

Pacific Palisades, CA (11 January 2012): A collaboration with a pair of Grammy nominated artists ushered the amorous title track to soul-jazz saxophonist Reinhold Schwarzwald's "Sunset" album onto the radio waves of influential Los Angeles radio station 94.7 KTWV The Wave. The kissing on the beach - or by the fireplace - ballad written by the international saxman was produced by keyboardist Patrice Rushen and includes fretwork from guitarist Doc Powell.

"I was inspired to write this song by watching a sunset surrounded by the breathtaking and romantic beauty of the California coastline at Point Dume in Malibu," said Schwarzwald, whose sound and style incorporates soulful contemporary jazz and funky R&B along with swatches of Brazilian influences. "It was a thrill to work with Patrice (Rushen) as we have a long association together. Doc (Powell) is such a wonderful person and a gifted musician. I'm grateful for the artistry that they both contributed to ‘Sunset.' It's exciting that The Wave, one of the most important radio stations in the country in this genre, is the first radio station in the country to embrace this cut."

Possessing a sultry groove and an intimate, inviting hook emoted with heartfelt passion, "Sunset" began receiving airplay in regular rotation on The Wave last week. The single is from the album of the same title that was reissued last month on the artist's VIP International record label. Schwarzwald produced and wrote or co-wrote nine of the eleven songs on the "Sunset" album, which features contributions from musicians hailing from Los Angeles, Paris and Brazil. Rushen produced three songs for the record. Both the single and album are available as a physical CD and digitally on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Schwarzwald's website (www.reinholdschwarzwald.com) and will soon be available at all major digital retail outlets.

Born in Austria to an Austrian father and a Hungarian mother, Schwarzwald was raised in a musical family and studied in music conservatories where he was trained in classical and jazz. After school, he landed in Paris, where he was invigorated by the vibrant Paris music scene. Schwarzwald performed extensively throughout Europe including at prestigious halls, clubs and festivals such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, and recorded as a studio musician in an eclectic array of genres. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, he won an International Song Expo award for his cinematically beautiful ballad "All Your Love," which also appears on the "Sunset" album. His music has garnered airplay on radio stations and television shows around the globe. Schwarzwald has collaborated with Grammy winners and platinum selling artists including Kirk Whalum, Hugh Masekela and Luis Conte, and has opened shows for Ray Charles and Chris Botti. He anticipates performing with his band in the Los Angeles area this spring. Additional information is available at www.reinholdschwarzwald.com.
