New York City Global soul icon Tomas Doncker is launching his
True Groove record label with a multi-CD release featuring 4 of the
label's artists on Monday, September 9 at The Blue Note on West 3rd
Street in the Village. The Tomas Doncker Band have had a busy year,
with 2 EP's under their belt, and they will be celebrating the new
"Power of the Trinity...A Slight Return" EP(Featuring Ethiopian Guitar
Hero Selam Seyoum Woldemariam,and rising star Betty G). Kevin
Jenkins, a famed bassist who has opened for the likes of Michael Jackson
and The Police, has set out on his own as a frontman with his new CD
"Step Inside", produced by Doncker. Marla Mase, who is fresh off the
heels of two major Summerstage appearances and promoting
February's critically acclaimed "SPEAK" CD, will also perform.
Rounding out the evening is True Groove's newcomer, Lael Summer,
who is preparing for the release of her debut full-length
"Burden to Bear".
The ethos of the label can be found in a statement from Doncker
about his "global soul" movement; "Global Soul: The sound of our
conscious. The unified rhythm of heart beats creating a positive,
collective spiritually uplifting force for good. Musically speaking
it is not genre specific, but in fact genre inclusive. It is the best
of what we have to offer to each other,from Brooklyn to Ethiopia,
and every where in Between."
This multiple CD Release/Label Launch extravaganza is in support
of Studio Samuel Foundation's 1Hundred Girls initiative.
(www.studiosamuel.org), an organization that is doing wonderful
work with girls in Ethiopia.
