California Flight have ARRIVED. 5/25/08 - June 20, 2008

We witness A GREAT GREAT CD Release Performance.
The Pacific Coast Jazz CD Release party for California Flight and the band first Take off @ Silk Road Lounge Sunday night they were SLAMIN.
Jerry J, & band members of California Flight Were HOT!!! They won our VOTE !
The Food at best was good !

it was my first time @ Silk Road Lounge. A "LIVE" music review with California Flight I was impress thoroughly.

I was very impress with everything club lighting people eating talking it was one of first BUT Best new R&B CD Release show I ever been apart of.I'm a white guy music critic trying to fit in and they made it easy for me & others ok, lol.They're awesome!

Hay, California Flight ripped the house up. It was a very good clean show night @ Best an outstanding professional debute for them (California Flight ) that was well received for them by all. What I did noticed and I witness a timeless sound " an ole G" we all said a "GREAT NEW " soul singer and a class act in R&B, Jazz, Neo Soul Pop Hip Hop & Funk with California Flight.They're (TM)!
Be READY and watchout bay area they're for real. With Jerry J, voice an Ole school Nu School style "kat" who has a tremondously upside beautiful tone with very commerically viable voice its his tone we all said he sound like this like that we were astounded like a dinosouras that was never found type thing not to say he out of touch this kat Jerry J , can sing music has no age has a great timeless voice PERIOD ! With a great voice "well that's what I get for being a "white guy" and not so up on every black urban culture change in the new sounds. But he (Jerry J) caught us all by suprise he's good.. He is a electrifying , catchy funk sound with smoothness. A geniune sound like a Nate King cole that meet's up with a Barry White kinda guy and we all love those sounding classic era's that's what music should sound like now well Jerry J, did it for us we were amazed.

It was a fun night a time of live music and live entertainment. And yes it was A LIVE Sunday night performance with a great new debut sound with California Flight that set it on fire.
California Flight from the show start to finish it was outstanding.

All my collegues those who were whispering saying things like: HE (Jerry J, the lead singer of California Flight) is good looking guy he can really sing (thats points) he is cool and kinds of funny (more points) on stage. With a funky singing side as we all concured he is one of the very BEST Male Jazz Funk Soul singers we've have heard todate coming out of the bay area and with a rich history of great soul male singers and funk performers like Sly Stone , Larry Graham , Rufus, Lenny William and we have so many great singers of yesterday and today he Jerry J is in a class all by hisself as one of those great male singers who are Timeless . It is his sounds that are fuse with a Al Jarrreau roll up in funk lace of Frankie Beverly . That man Jerry J can sang ya'll ( now thats black) he's a real seasonal pro.

We just set there and watch and were quite.We just enjoyed the show. There are some singers who can captivate you instantly well he Jerry J can do just that he takes control.We said he is that ONE that we call a great soul singer stageman the way a Frank Sinastra tell story then take you there .

It was the moment, the man, the new thrill is on .
He is THE music industry best kept secret and from the bay area that in itself say's allot .

Our team of music critics from local music journal staff DEPARTMENTS from AMG, Countra Costa Times, East Bay Express, local colleges and a few other radio personalities that were their:

KPOO, KECG, KBLX, KPFA. We all witness a return of a man who held true to his craft of classic Ole school soul funk with a new school style of jazz that grooves you with his brand smooth new sound.

We loved it the band was well dressed and very nice on stage. We look at everything.What they're wearing , how they sound, how they interacted with each other , how many error's or flaws they showed or had.They a few mis key but not noticiable to others and a overall a G performance. An that critique of the act from top to bottom . We all did confirm that Jerry J & California Flight act are one we know now !
The grade we gave them and it's scary to say were music critics with the best intentions for the act.We hear allot and see allot of musicians and on most occasions for the acts we review with all do seriousness . California Flight hay they got a passing grade with a big G for Greatness on the Rise ! Jerry J, the pilot no doubt and all the other accommpanied players are great musicans. But he is a very soulful polish great singer. And we been missing that sound for quite sometime he got that "it style" with a big G.

The women will adore him .

A very creative artistic band but his voice stood out like "ala" Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Frankie Beverley, a smooth sound of a Luther Vandross an very close comparsion. A skilled talented stylist R&B Jazz, Soul,Pop Funk band, we applaud them all of California Flight. They will be on promotional tour around the nation, than the world to build their new fan base. A really great R&B Soul Jazz Funk FIRST class act. . California Flight Project 4 "Hope LP, songs we've heard at best solidly produced . But the one song that we thought that ROCK the night was: "HOPE" ! Than the neo smooth soul song "Your My Guest in my House" nicely done. "Throw your Hands up", "MINDSET" those song are good party songs can be a smashing HIT !
MINDSET , will be on their NEXT New lp release "Project V". They did something unique with a twist they debuted "Mindset" as the last song that night that was great. That's how you do it! It's a HOT song.

California Flight are accommplish band now and will be for long time with a successfull sound. The "Theme song, California Flight also is a smash song. We heard that song online but they did not peform it .

Overall rating is (G) for Greatness a sound on the rise with great potential for smashing success.

A really good start for Jerry J & California Flight.

We thank you for inviting us meaning we music critics who showed up from the radio station rep-personalities from CCC Music, AMG Music,ACOE Members.Silk Road Lounge

We all had a great time watching and listening witnessing possibly a new beginning to the return of a great new era in funk from the Bay Area the sounds of California Flight. A new genre era called: "JPOPSOUL" that will work anywhere.

It made us all feel like a real guest in California Flight house. .
We enjoyed it.

Much success CFP.
