The Vincent Chandler Quartet "Embraceable" project is my first self titled record. I have composed and performed my original music for more than twenty years, but only the Metro-Detroit area has heard it. Now I would like to share it with the rest of the world. I chose the title, "Embraceable" to express my desire to be embraced by my peers and by the world wide jazz audience. The CD will be used to apply for national and international jazz festivals, club dates, radio play, record sales, to pursue a record or distribution deal and to demonstrate my skills as I apply for a College Professorship.
Your generous donations will pay the band to rehearse and record. The rhythm section will be made up of my teacher for the last two years, Geri Allen with Robert Hurst, and Karriem Riggins. Your donations will also pay for high quality studio time, CD packaging, and the amount of CD's pressed. If donations exceed the $4500 I have asked for, I will add a guest artist or even record my septet music. So, no donation is too much!
