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 !!

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,
