CD/DVD Releases: Spyro Gyra Bassist Gets Exotic On New Dark Chocolate Release, ''Unwrapped''

Posted on Sunday, August 02 @ 20:00:00 UTC by nightowl

Megawave and MVD Audio are proud to announce the CD release of Dark Chocolate Unwrapped on September 8th, in North America.

One of the most respected modern day jazz outfits is undoubtedly Spyro Gyra, whose free-flowing yet instrumentally complex music has been turning the music world on its ear for decades by this point. And Kim Stone, who has supplied bass for Spyro Gyra (in addition to the Rippingtons), can also be spotted as part of the world jazz outfit, Dark Chocolate, who are gearing up to release their sophomore full length, Unwrapped.

Joining Stone on this disc will be Clay Henry (percussion), Brock Bradford (percussion), John Nava (percussion), Mike Shannon (traps), Aaron Stone (drums/percussion), Nico Georis (piano), Webber Iago (keyboards), Joseph Lucido (guitar/guitar synth), and Xocoyotzin Moraza (veracruz harp). Largely instrumental and recorded live (with minimal overdubs), the disc includes a pair of vocal contributions from Alicia Sheek (the track "Hip Talk") and Jane Blikert ("Your Skin is Where I Begin").

Dark Chocolate will be supporting the release of Unwrapped with select live dates in major markets.
