Hollywood, CA. (Aug. 17, 2017) – Consummate musician, songwriter, producer and veteran broadcaster for over four decades, Al Chalk has finally completed and released his highly anticipated debut album, "United States of Us", featuring the groove-a-licious smooth jazz single Vanessa.
A veteran multi-instrumentalist/percussionist who hails originally from New York City, Al has been composing and producing world music for more than 20 years. He is now thrilled to announce the launch of his debut album of world music entitled "United States of Us", through his newly formed indie consortium, Booby Trap Entertainment Group.
The album, with its tight rhythms, snappy horn arrangements and crisp vocals, masterfully infuses elements of Pop, Jazz, African and Latin. The result is a rich, bold and superbly unique sound. "United States of Us" currently features the smooth jazz hit single, Vanessa. The album also includes the slick and sexy slow jam, All I Want featuring vocal sensation Julio Hanson. The song was co-produced along with Al by renowned L.A. producer Lloyd Tolbert and recorded at both Lloyd's Tolhouse Sound and Al's ChalkTalk Music Studios.
