Nathan East's newest release "Reverence" is the second solo release from Nathan. Artists on this latest release include: Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Phillip Bailey and Yolanda Adams to name a few.
This release features a cover of Earth, Wind & Fire's "Serpentine Fire," which was originally recorded with East's brother Marcel in 1991 with Eric Clapton on guitar and Phil Collins on drums. Moogie, East's longtime engineer, who mixed the original cinematic cover, discovered the track 25 years later, and after a long search for the tapes, finally uncovered them in Patti Austin's basement.
After the tape was digitally remastered, the three Earth, Wind & Fire members sang (Philip Bailey), played additional bass parts (Verdine White), and added percussion (Ralph Johnson) to the track, resulting in a daring, head-turning, cinematic journey. As a founding member of renowned contemporary jazz quartet Fourplay, Nathan East is one of the world's most recorded session bassists.
With over 2,000 album credits to his name and several GRAMMY-winning songs including "Get Lucky," "Footloose" and "Change the World," East has performed with artists including Daft Punk, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston & Beyonce. He received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for his self-titled solo debut 'Nathan East' on March 2014 which hit #1 on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Albums chart and held #1 for a record-breaking 36 weeks on SmoothJazz.com.
