Artist: Rick Parma

CD: Piece of Heaven

Genera: Smooth Jazz, R&B

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in Chicago and now lives in Southern California. Rick Parma has always wanted to capture an audience with passion for music since he was 8 years old. At the age of 14 he was given his first tool to make that happen when he picked up the saxophone. Nearly twenty years later, he has developed his voice as his second tool to continue his lifelong dream. His live activity brought him under the spotlight of some of the most renowned clubs and live venues and events in the area, including shows at Spaghettini, The Whiskey A Go Go, and appearances at the legendary Newport Beach Jazz Fest, just to name a few.  His third release to date is entitled “Piece of Heaven” released in 2013. The CD kicks gets off the ground nicely with "Besame Caliente” hard hitting smooth flowing intro piece that serves up slamming Horns section meshed against slamming bass lines, effective harmonies and soulful melody from Parma. Track 2 “Flyin’ High” keeps things moving in the right direction with intoxicating groove, steady flowing rhythm, well placed guitar chops painted against a hooky chorus making for an impressive follow-up statement. Track 3 “Hey Girl” dishes out another impressive jazzy-groove statement that serves up rock steady rhythm, impressive and impr4essive vocals and lyrical content from PArma that flows and ebbs its way through to motional fruition. The CD makes a great first impression dashing out 3 amazing songs in a row. Read Review
