Felix Jackson, one of Nigeria’s finest bass player, releases a mind blowing smooth jazz composition titled New Dawn produced by Johnson Juwon for Creativemyind productions.
As a bass player, who has featured on many tracks by some of Nigeria’s finest gospel artistes and ministers, Felix thrills jazz music lovers with this sweet sound.
“Jazz music is one spiritual genre of music that transcends words which can be sung. Just playing some notes on the Bass guitar perfectly synced with an amazing production can simply pull down the spirit of God. That is what i really love about this song” – Felix Jackson.
Speaking further, He quotes “Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel” – Luke 1:78-80
This beautiful instrumental is mixed and mastered by Oluwadamilare Akinyede for AlphaJunes Studios.
