With the release of his new collection Universe Soul, famed L.A. session man Bill Bergman and the Metro Jets, a group comprised of some of the West Coast's hottest pop, soul and jazz musicians, are soaring once again with a hip, groove-intensive and ultra-sexy mix of in your face R&B, high spirited melodic jazz, simmering romance and a few explosive touches of gospel/blues. As a founding member of the popular soul band Jack Mack & the Heart Attack, and known for his legendary solo on Glenn Frey's "You Belong to the City", the Kansas City-bred saxman became a fixture in the Quiet Storm/Contemporary jazz format with both Midnight Sax (which Jazziz Magazine later named one of the ten most influential smooth jazz albums of all time) and it's popular follow-up: Bill Bergman and the Metro Jets. Long a master at creating fascinating emotional mood swings in his music, Bergman infuses Universe Soul with a funky and high energy bang. Over the course of it's 11 immediately infectious, in the pocket tracks, Universe Soul gives Bergman a chance to strut his stuff on tenor and soprano sax as well as flute, in addition to showcasing his versatility as a songwriter, arranger and producer.
