Verve/GRP Signs Brian Culbertson

Brian Culbertson finally has a new label and is working on a new CD.

BrianCulbertson2.jpgSmooth jazz pianist and composer Brian Culbertson, who found himself without a label last year after Warner Bros. closed its jazz division, has signed to the Verve label.

The label releases smooth jazz under its GRP subsidiary. Culbertson is now writing music for his debut album with the label, which he expects to be released on June 28th. The tentative name of the album is Sensuality.

Culbertson says the album will have a slower, sexier vibe than previous works such as his last album, Come On Up, which featured the single of the same name.
