Their songs “Joy And Pain,” “Running Away,” “Golden Time Of Day,” “Happy Feelin’s” and  “We Are One” are classic hits that have become synonymous with any kind of celebration with R&B fans around the world.

CD Tribute To Maze featuring Frankie Beverly Released Digitally Today

San Francisco, Calif (August 25, 2009). – The buzz continues to build for the CD Silky Soul Music…An All- Star Tribute to Maze featuring Frankie Beverly released digitally TODAY and in-stores September 29. The highly anticipated ten-song CD features brand new studio recordings of Maze’s biggest hits such as “Joy and Pain” and “Before I Let Go.” The set boasts an impressive list of urban music artists such as the legendary Mary J. Blige, Musiq Soulchild, Ledisi, Kem, Mint Condition, Joe, Raheem DeVaughn, Kevon Edmonds, Avant and the Clark Sisters with J. Moss and Kierra Sheard.

Grammy nominee Rex Rideout (Vanessa Williams, Will Downing, Ledisi) and Anthony Beverly (Frankie’s son) produced nine tracks on the album. Grammy winner Donald Lawrence produced the Clark Sisters’ “I Wanna Thank You” track. “For the most part, we let the vocalists, and their distinctive styles command how the songs would be freshened,” says Rideout. “All of the artists did great jobs interpreting Frankie and bringing a new twist to a great song book.

“Seeing my father’s reaction to the final album was priceless,” says Anthony, who also served as one of the executive producers on the project (along with Music services, LLC and his entertainment attorney wife, Heather Beverly). “To see the emotion on his face when he heard each and every song was one of the proudest moments of my life. He loves the album and is overwhelmed that so many people came together to make it happen. It is definitely a project that gives my father and Maze their just due.”

Around the country, there have been exclusive listening parties that have brought out everyday fans, music industry VIPS and celebrities such as the iconic Stevie Wonder who stopped by the Hollywood album release party. Radio stations across the country are ecstatic about the tribute CD project. Joe’s remake of Maze’s “Can’t Get Over You” is #32 on the Nielsen BDS Urban AC National Radio Airplay Chart and continues to fuel the fire this project has ignited.

No one is more pleased than Frankie Beverly himself. “The tribute album for me is a special blessing from my God,” he says.“Most people who have had a tribute album given to them were not here to see it, feel it or hear it. Well, no matter what happens in the days, months or years to come, I have indeed been blessed to see, feel and hear this gift of gifts from a loving son and his lovely wife. There are no words to express my true gratitude for all the artists involved, all of who gave one hundred percent of themselves to this project. I have no idea what qualifies me for such a honor but I do know one thing, I will treasure this moment for the rest of my life.”

Over the last four decades, Maze has become an R&B radio staple with a dozen albums and 30 R&B chart hits. They continue to perform to sold-out arenas in the U.S.A. and abroad.
