  • 1. A Tour Like No Other BILAL AMEL BENOIT & Others A proposal from August 22, 2006 ©2000-2006 benier koranache ltd
  • 2. What’s This All About? SOUL meets JAZZ Tour will bring together the largest names in soul and jazz music, reminding fans across the country that almost every style of American music has been influenced by jazz. Throughout time, soul music and jazz have mixed and mingled on inner-city street corners, music halls, churches and on numerous gold and platinum records. Indeed, soul and jazz music are true American originals that tell the story of our past. SOUL meets JAZZ Tour will carry on this tradition as we live the next chapter in American history. SOUL meets JAZZ Tour series will kick off in Orlando, Florida with a presentation by jazz guru David Benoit, and soul goddess, Amel Larrieux. SOUL meets JAZZ Tour will be covered by all major media outlets including Entertainment Tonight, E! Entertainment, The Insider, Access Hollywood, MTV, VH1 and the BET JAZZ Network. Major print and web magazines, satellite radio and pod casters will also cover the tour. Additional support will be provided through major cooperate sponsorship. SOUL meets JAZZ Tour will also be filmed by Murphy Boyz Entertainment for use in film, DVD and Internet content. The tour’s audio and artist interviews will be released through Sands Street Music. August 22, 2006 ©2000-2006 benier koranache ltd
  • 3. The Artists: AMEL LARRIEUX She’s hot. She wrote a song and created a demo tape, which led to her pairing with Bryce Wilson to form the duo Groove Theory. As lead siren and co-writer for the group, Amel enjoyed success with "Tell Me," which broke the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and the top five on the R&B charts before being certified gold in October 1995. Amel recently released her third solo album, Morning (Bliss Life Records) on April 25, 2006. Amel fuses a range of genres – R&B, soul, hip-hop, jazz and folk, with flashes of Middle Eastern, West African, and Indian styles. Inspired by a friend who felt "tired of having to be strong," Amel wrote the first single "Weary" for hardworking single people all over. August 22, 2006 ©2000-2006 benier koranache ltd
  • 4. The Artists: REBBESOUL RebbeSoul infuses cutting-edge world beat with the influence of his Hebrew roots. As an artist, he has been featured in BILLBOARD, on CNN INTERNATIONAL, National Public Radio (NPR), interviewed on the CBC of Canada and MTV's GABAREAU LIVE, named to MUSICAL STARSTREAMS TOP 20.RebbeSoul brings a new voice to the sometimes-stagnant realm of Jewish music. He blends jazz, rock sensibilities, world-fusion stylings and traditional Hebrew melodies to create a sound that is ageless yet completely progressive. RebbeSoul’s latest album, Change The World With A Sound, shows RebbeSoul moving to the next level musically - mixing Mizrahi chant and electronic beats with the signature jazz/funk/folk/ethnic rock style that his audience has come to know and love.RebbeSoul is known to say that "music is the common language" in an increasingly troubled world. Upon listening to Change The World, one can hear that he is becoming more fluent in that universal language with each passing day. August 22, 2006 ©2000-2006 benier koranache ltd
  • 5. The Artists: GINA DARBY Meet recording artist Gina Darby - a Gary/Chicago native and former Miss Black Teenage World. A woman of God who has found her purpose in His will - the encouragement, inspiration and edification of others by way of her lyrics and voice - her music and spirit. Gina possesses a dynamic vocal talent barely contained within her 5'1'' frame. She has come into her own, having developed a smooth-as-satin style that rolls along like thirsty waves lapping at the shore, but also deftly rocks like the intense waves produced by a summer's storm. In this, her first solowriting/producing venture, entitled "One More Day", Gina delivers twelve memorable tunes that resonate within the spirit and mind of the listener. The excitingly broad range of music styles she employs is purely captivating. August 22, 2006 ©2000-2006 benier koranache ltd
  • 6. The Artists: JULIE DEXTER Born and raised in Birmingham, England of Jamaican parents, Julie Dexter is a world-renowned singer / songwriter who has won numerous international awards.

For the past four years Julie Dexter has spent the millennium sharing the stage with this generation's cutting-edge soul artists, including Jill Scott, Bilal, Amel Larrieux, Donnie, Omar, Jaguar, Rachelle Ferrell, and Fertile Ground, to name a few.ハ While Julie Dexter is more than able to hold up against her peers, her music has also been praised by them.ハIn time the world will hold Julie Dexter in the same regardsハas those stellar artists who regard her well. August 22, 2006 ©2000-2006 benier koranache ltd
