Lu "Sweet Lu" Olutosin's new album Meet Me at the Crossroads is a musical collaboration that creatively connects the dots between the gospel roots of Jazz and Blues with the toil that underpins the struggles of everyday people everywhere. The album features Jazz legend Donald Brown, Tyrone Jackson (piano), Mace Hibbard (Sax), Lester Walker (Trumpet), Henry Conerway III (Drums), Kevin Smith (Bass), and Crystal Monet (Vox).
Sweet Lu Olutosin uses his talent for truthfully articulating this existence by lyrically weaving stories of past and present struggle while forcing self-examination by his audience. This music Grooves Hard, and is guaranteed to get you moving from your seats to the dance floor.
"Sweet Lu' Olutosin is one of the most promising male jazz singers around.... Throughout Meet Me At The Crossroads, Sweet Lu Olutosin provides warm vocals, versatility and subtle creativity. His latest release is well worth exploring and savoring" -- SCOTT YANOW, Jazz journalist/historian and author of 11 books including "The Jazz Singers"
"To call Sweet Lu a griot is an understatement. He is a wise sage imparting age old lessons by deftly infusing our cultural history and family values utilizing a tapestry of blues, gospel and jazz that are pure entertainment from beginning to end." -- CARL ANTHONY, Jazz Curator, Notoriusjazz.com
