JaR - SCENE 29 -- the NEW Jay Graydon/Randy Goodrum album!

JAY GRAYDON and RANDY GOODRUM - highly acclaimed songwriters, hit makers, lifelong friends and colleagues - have teamed up and are now working together as the new supergroup - JaR - releasing their first album - SCENE 29 - October 1st in the US.

Sept. 21, 2008 - PRLog -- JAY GRAYDON and RANDY GOODRUM, having worked together many times in the past, have teamed up as the new supergroup - JaR - and are now releasing their first album - SCENE 29. This album is a melodic masterpiece with songs across the board - a mixture of Pop, R&B, AC, AOR and Jazz. Two years of hard work, writing and recording new material, has resulted in an incredible set of songs with amazing melodies and outstanding playing and singing by these seasoned musicians and accomplished songwriters. The album is superbly crafted, loaded with original, sophisticated, catchy songs, with subtle harmonies and interesting melodic hooks, co-written and co-produced by Randy and Jay. The musical concept is totally new, yet slightly familiar to anyone into the Steely Dan sound, as the songs build on a similar formula with complex jazz-influenced chord structures that are pleasant to the ear with unexpected musical twists, as well as apt, fun and innovative lyrics.

As usual Jay Graydon plays his guitar with elegant and intelligent accuracy and Randy Goodrum, the piano virtuoso, with many international hits over the years, adds to the magic of JaR with his inventive solos, jazzy voicings and exciting lyrical flavors. Further, the groove is mature, featuring both cats' voices in a harmonious blend - the perfect pair of exceptional musical gifts.

"You guys have taken the torch from Steely Dan and have run miles and miles ahead!!!" - Steve Lukather
