'A Little Space' Conquers the Large World of Rhythm & Jazz

Einstein admits that a lot of good stuff can be crammed in just A Little Space. Producer/writer Big Al agrees, and has eagerly, easily proved the theory true. He's got the John Lennon Songwriting Award to prove it.

Funk/jazz group A Little Space is the godchild of bass player Alan Gruskoff, aka Big Al, the multi-talented music maestro and composer of the Lennon-award-winning "Yes I Would." This incredible composition won in the Latin/Jazz Instrumental category, and now shows up with 13 other tunes on A Little Space's new self-titled cd.

RealAudio Sample: "Pictures Of You"

This spicy hour of cool smooth jazz and alternating funky grooves divides itself between 9 cuts of vocals and the last 5 tracks of instrumentals, where primed electric guitars, faultless sax and strong night bass glows with a tuneful electricity that will vibrate the hearts of Sting, Steely Dan and Al Jarreau without even a second play.

With just a few exceptions, all you hear comes from Big Al's able skills. Not just a fantastic bass player, Al blends his midi, acoustic guitar and nearly all other instruments like a one- man Prince unit, but with far greater accessibility and heart.

He'll bring some tight electric guitars in to lead, or a sax to melt down the mood sometimes - but he's also got a secret weapon. Vocalist Terrell Moran.

RealAudio Sample: "She Walks She Talks"

Moran brings a patch of class to the first 8 tracks, transforming A Little Space into a tender soul sound, as 'Story Of My Life' clearly demonstrates. He's got softness and compassion easing out of every graceful performance, making this new disc into a brilliant collaboration between music maker and performing artist.

If ever a debut album deserved lengthy airplay to combat the over-indulgence of loud alternative rock, this is the title that needs to be prescribed. It coats, soothes, relieves. And it activates the brain and feet both.

A Little Space is based in Los Angeles, California where they perform, as well as launching out great live sets all over southern California, and Las Vegas. A showman's band, with the relaxed demeanor of a small club sound. No wonder people are beginning to talk.

RealAudio Sample: "Pick and Roll"

If you want to see just what's going on at any given time, or just feel the need for an instant shot of great music, night or day, check out their advanced website at alittlespace.biz for the lowdown and the high energy. There you'll learn the latest news, and can eat your fill of downloadable mp3s.

And speaking of mp3s - did you know that as of June 30th of this year, A Little Space has charted four #1 tunes on mp3.com?

Number 1 in Jazz-Fusion
Number 1 in Jazz-Vocal
Number 1 in Jazz-Latin
Number 1 in Soul

Only the fittest survive nature. But only the best music beats its way up to #1 on mp3.com. To do that 4 times without major label backing is - almost unheard of!

The secret? You gotta conquer the globe. 40% of ALS's website traffic comes from outside the US. Their first online cd sale was to a man in the Netherlands. The Euro and Asian markets love ALS's sound as much as Americans do.

It's simple to hear why. Fit your groove like a glove - to your own fingerprints, not someone else's. Then shake your bass for all it's worth. A Little Space's bass is worth a lot.
