The following is an album cover design project I composed and designed for a Jazz musician form the Big Apple New York City.
Chris Massey is a Spectra Jazz recording artist becoming a wildly talked about new breed of young talented player in the jazz stream of music. He is a drummer, composer and bandleader. Massey produces a fire and forward momentum in his playing that is becoming a fresh sound in the scene today.
According the his website ChrisMasseyJazz.com Chris spent time under the tutelage of local legend Shedrick Hobbs who had played with Charlie “Bird” Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and many other jazz legends of the day. It was during this time where Chris learned that jazz was not a music genre but a state of consciousness. In 2003 Chris began performing with world renounced artists such as former Jazz Messenger Donald Harrison Jr. Since then he has performed with such renowned artists as Dave Holland, Joe Lovano, members of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Birdland Big Band well as many other great players.
Currently residing in the New York City area Chris constantly performs with/leading his modern jazz group “The Nue Jazz Project”. Some of the spots he has performed around the city of New York include Smoke, Cleopatra’s Needle, Smalls, Fat Cat, 55bar, The Garage, The Iridium and many other hot spots of jazz lovers.
His album “Vibrainium” is now on sale via iTunes, Amazon, and several different media outlets. The album has been reviewed by JazzTimes and Downbeat. Read more about Chris Massey by visiting his website.

Below is the song “Vibrainium” for the project I designed for Chris in 2011. It is an unbelievable soothing and emotional ballad of sound instrumentation. The respect for Jazz and Blues musicians is never short because these talents are the true talents of music. Though the music I myself composed as an artist is far from the genre of Jazz the thought that one could soak in some Jazz tunes is like take a dip in a Jacuzzi. Truly what can be more relaxing than something as Jazz music.

The album cover design consisted of a front cover 2-4 page inserts, CD disk label, and back treycard design for the “Vibrinium” project. Overall Chris was pleased with the project and decided to come back to me for his second project “Whosoever”. The project can be heard on his website and is also another on point composition and production in music.
Upcoming album “Whosoever” featuring Adam Larson (Tenor Sax), Benny Benack III (Trumpet), Willerm Delisfort (Piano), and Chris Talio (Bass) will be released in January of 2013 on Power Cosmic Records.
