Atlanta musician Khari Cabral Simmons – responsible for the Dome album “Moon Bossa” together with Julie Dexter – returns with a stunning collection of soul, jazz and bossa nova grooves. Aided by Bluey, who mixed the album, and Incognito, who add their horns to the hooky “How Can We Go Wrong?”, the album has a number of uplifting airplay-friendly tunes, from India Arie’s “Never In Your Sun”to the delightful “Get Back”, vocalled by newcomer Chantae Cann, and “Major Bossa” by one of Brazil’s rising stars Sabrina Malheiros.
“The Dove” is co-written by Khari with Avery Sunshine producer/writer Dana Johnson.
Khari was the long-time bass player in India Arie’s band and later led his own Atlanta band Jiva.
