FKAjazz Releases New Single LET IT SNOW
Deemed a "triple threat, Musician/Producer/Writer" by United Press International, Samir Zarif aka FKAjazz has taking the latter half of 2017 by storm, first by releasing his groundbreaking sophomore album under his new moniker, FKAjazz and now with the release of "Let? ?It? ?Snow? ?(Lovers'? ?Version)"? a single release for the long winter season to come. "It's time to cozy up," he says.
Jonathan Widran of Jazziz Magazine writes, "NYC based saxophonist Samir Zarif lays the dynamic groundwork for the possibilities of what jazz is for his generation and provides a vision for what the cherished American art form can be moving forward. With a freewheeling energy driven by the still simmering melting pot of influences that drive his musical passion - traditional jazz, R&B and hip-hop - [his music] is the culmination of a multi-faceted journey that transcends easy definitions. It's always evolving with a sense of grooving and improvisational wonder and discovery." By all means, this is a beautifully unexpected version of "Let It Snow" which effortlessly holds a place on every holiday playlist. From it's smooth-groove R&B feel to the masterful saxophone performance,
FKAjazz's "Let It Snow" is a must-listen throughout the cold months ahead.
As Christian Wissmuller of JazzEd Magazine put it "[FKAjazz is] moving jazz forward even further into new and exciting territories, incorporating elements of hip hop, traditional jazz, R&B, and other musical forms. This single release of "Let? ?It? ?Snow"? coupled with the release of "Stereotype Threat" (released September 2017), proves that FKAjazz is on a mission to take us all on an epic musical journey.
