“Grammy-winning contemporary jazz keyboardist Gregg Karukas has emerged from the studio with another classy project called Soul Secrets…the Karukas sound and style remain very much intact with this recording. No disappointments here,” says The Smooth Jazz Ride, “It’s really no secret at all — Karukas delivers again”.
“Soul Secrets features his long-time friends: Rick Braun, Euge Groove, Ricardo Silveira, Eric Valentine, Nate Phillips, Michael O’Neill, James Harrah, Adam Hawley, vocalists Shelby Flint and Ron Boustead; violinist Charlie Bisharat, Luis Conte and Vincent Ingala!! There is lots of grand piano, and also quite a bit of some classic keyboards that he grew up with: Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer Electric Piano, Hammond B3 and Minimoog,” adds Smoothjazzbuzz.
