R&B/Jazz Keyboardist Jeff Logan to Release New Project “Indigo” on April 12th, 2024 | LISTEN!

R&B/Jazz keyboardist Jeff Logan’s transformational “Indigo” set for April 12

Two-time Grammy winner Paul Brown produced the vulnerable album chronicling the process of growth.

BOWIE, MD (28 FEBRUARY 2024): Indigo is a natural plant-based hue produced through a transformational process that unfolds over time. R&B/jazz keyboardist Jeff Logan has been going through his own transformative process that inspired the title of his long-germinating second album “Indigo,” which will drop on April 12 via the Fire and Ice Network label. Two-time Grammy winner Paul Brown (Boney James, Norman Brown, Al Jarreau, Bob James) produced the ten-song set written by Logan who opened his heart to reveal intimate moments, introspective reflections and personal stories of love, heartbreak and hope culled from the process of real life.

Logan has always been a prolific songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, constantly composing and recording new material in his home studio, playing all the instruments himself. As a composer, he has an innate way with melody. However, he hasn’t shared any of his recordings publicly since his 2011 debut album, “Black Tie Affair.” Since that project, he went through a painful divorce, was distanced from his daughters, and logged innumerable high-stress hours serving as the Chief of Population Management for Prince George’s County, Maryland Department of Corrections.

Daily, Logan found solace sitting at his keyboard, strumming his guitar, and thumping his bass to create new music, amassing a catalogue of over four hundred songs. The creative outlet enabled him to remain hopeful and optimistic while his spirituality kept a bright smile on his face through the tumult. But to grow as an artist, Logan had to take a leap of faith: surrender production duties to someone else and bring in additional musicians.

With Brown in the producer’s chair while adding guitars and percussion to the “Indigo” tracks, he brought in his A-team of veteran session players to elevate Logan’s vibrant piano and keyboard harmonies. Shane Theriot is virtually a one-man band who played bass, drums, guitar and keyboards on the album. The rhythm section consisted of drummer Gorden Campbell and bassist Roberto Vally. Multi-horn man Ron King and saxophonist Greg Vail completed the lineup.

Recalling hot days spent with family and friends, Logan opens the album by serving up thirst-quenching “Lemonade.” Sweet piano melodies stir the drink of a chill R&B groove poured over horns aplenty as a refreshing chaser.

“Chill Factor,” which will be released as a single in April, began when Logan heard in his head a guitar riff playing in unison with his piano.

The elegant jazz sounds heard on “Tears of Hope” belie the intense introspective feelings Logan delves into on the track that evokes the influence of the late great contemporary jazz keyboardist Joe Sample.

Varying the lead instrumental voice, Logan adds warm flute sounds atop his keyboard hooks and melodies on “Let It Go,” the album’s preview single that was soft launched in January. It’s another track that King and Vail filled with muscular horn section parts under Brown’s skillful direction.

“Bread and Wine” exudes a calming sense of joy, which Logan said emanates from nurturing his spirit via cherished time spent with family and friends.

On “I Love You,” another melody rich expression of affection spoken through his keyboards and flute, Logan ties together the themes underlying the entire album into one song.

Not only does Logan share his music, but he also shares his emotional journey and the difficult inner work he did to heal and learn to love again on the gentle “Fall In Love.” His sensitive keyboard seems to gain reassurance from Vail’s soothing sax.

In the process of creating the album, Logan did what he calls “a heart audit.” He set his soul-searching to music on the gorgeous mellifluous piano reflection titled “If Only.”

The foundation of the uplifting title track is a funky R&B groove, bouncy, hopeful and feel-good, cleansing and purifying after the intense feelings, emotions and revelations Logan examined and stirred up.

The album closes with the contemplative “A Soul’s River,” an existential rumination on which Logan ponders his impact.

Logan’s growth – artistically and professionally as well as personally and emotionally – in the nearly thirteen years since his last album is nothing short of remarkable. No doubt it took a lot of challenging work and nurturing self-care. The time-honored processes that he’s been through over the years served to develop and hone his craft. “Indigo” is the product of a composer-keyboardist who has evolved into a uniquely gifted and expressive instrumental voice capable of communicating powerfully via distinctively colored musical hues.

Logan’s “Indigo” album contains the following songs:

“Lemonade”
“Chill Factor”
“Tears of Hope”
“Let It Go”
“Bread and Wine”
“I Love You”
“Fall In Love”
“If Only”
“Indigo”
“A Soul’s River”
