eMotion Reviews and Testimonials...
Saxophone Player Greg Vail re-released this Smooth Jazz hit in 2002 on Greg Vail Music.

Fans of pop-jazz supergroup Kilauea have been licking their lips over the long anticipated release of Greg Vail's opening solo statement E-Motion, and the charismatic multi-saxman does everything musically possible to fulfill their fantasies.

Infusing the same type of frenetic energy and silky passion as in his live and recorded performances with the band, Vail keeps his ideas melodically simple while venturing into enough edgy improvisational territory that will keep obvious comparisons at bay.

While punchy gems like the title track will have ears salivating coast to coast, and the Smokey Robinson cover "Just To See Her" finds a safe familiarity, the real standouts are the smoking blues-brass gun "Ben-Jamin" and the swaying orchestral centerpiece "In The Beginning".

These two spin all emotions into unexpected directions.

Peter White and Carl Verheyen add some impressive stringwork, helping Vail establish his own voice on what could have been just another impressive pop jam session.

Greg

I finally got around to buying Emotion. I am playing it for the second time right now. I really like it. You deserve to be as famous as Boney James or Richard Elliot. I will buy your Christmas CD when Christmas time comes around again. Mega blessings to you and yours.

Certainty of Purpose - Greg Vail:

Greg Vail is a veteran musician who's recorded hundreds of sessions and toured with many of the brightest stars in both Smooth Jazz and Christian music.

Inspired by his grandfather, who played professionally, Vail took up the sax at age six. He studied privately & played in school bands throughout junior & senior high. After graduating from Long Beach State with a BA in Music, Vail worked with a number of local groups.

Then in 1991, he landed a spot with Kilauea and recorded 4 CDs with them before releasing eMotion his solo debut in 1995. That same year he left Kilauea and signed a deal with Time Life Records. The result was Sax By Candlelight, a collection of 40 love songs that was released in 1996.

Touring with Peter White and keyboardist Rob Mullins occupied most of Vail's time for the next few years, so he didn't release another solo project until the year 2000.

However, in 2002, Vail obtained the rights to eMotion, and after being remastered and repackaged, the album was re-released and from it we have just an outstanding track.

Vail's heart felt performance is unsurpassed and if anything, time has only served to make us more aware of its brilliance !!

Greg,

I listened to your CD's today for the first time. Where have I been? I feel like I owe you a huge apology. Quite honestly, I never took you seriously. You are always fartin' around Saddleback. Yea, you play good. But I guess I never gave you a serious listen.

At the risk of sounding gushy, I am gonna gush.

Your work on Emotion blows me away. Rich, rich, rich. But more than that, I am surprised that you're not more cocky and obnoxious.

Ta ta for now,

Robin
