Album Review: Julian Vaughn- Limitless

As I browsed the day’s new releases at Amazon last Tuesday, I was pleasantly surprised to spot Limitless, the latest effort by Julian Vaughn, listed among the site’s top 100 sellers. 

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Kansas City based jazz musician place so prominently on Amazon’s sales chart.

It’s not difficult to understand the appeal.  Vaughn plays insinuating contemporary jazz.  Limitless includes quiet storm R&B, upbeat tracks with hip-hop elements and a tribute to one of the bassist’s primary influences, the late musician and basketball star Wayman Tisdale. 

The album release concert for Limitless is Friday, May 8, at the Gem Theater.
