Coffee Colored Eyes
Winslow Stillman
AHR - 30003
Released: Mar 30, 2012
Label: After Hours Records
"Coffee Colored Eyes" is the new CD by Winslow Stillman. Recorded in Bogotá, Colombia by veteran producer, Toño Castillo, it features Latin jazz violin virtuoso, Alfredo de la Fe, and a number of Colombia's finest musicians. Stillman melds his US songwriting skills with infectious Latin rhythms and lush harmonies in a fusion that can only be described as Gringo Latino.

"Caribbean Feeling" is already a local Bogotá favorite with "No Messa Con La Jefa" and "Jilda" receiving good notice. The surprising funk groove of "Someone's Taken My Place" is a unique departure for the collection of originals that demonstrates Stillman's R&B roots. But Jazz is infused throughout with the haunting arrangement of "Blue Over You" and the nod to Brazil's Bossa influences in "I'll Never Find The Way" also rendered in Portuguese as a bonus track.

This is a long overdue debut for a veteran performer who has worked coast to coast as a big band singer, an award-winning Nashville producer, and jazz-rock guitarist.
