Smooth Sounds for a Sunday Afternoon
This melodic, smooth jazz instrumental CD is destined to become one of your all time favorites. HARREL L. WILEY III (better known as Dr. Wiley or Pastor Wiley) is an accomplished musician with many years of experience. At the age of 14 he realized his passion for music. He performed in and organized several bands utilizing the musical talent he was born with. After high school, Dr. Wiley studied music at American River College and Sacramento State College. He is the well-respected and loved pastor of New Life Christian Center located in Madison, California. 1976 brought the dawning of a new life, a new beginning for Dr. Wiley - he became a Christian. His music was transformed, along with his life, and his music became inspired by heaven above. Since then Dr. Wiley has written over 300 songs that glorify Christ as they inspire and encourage others. Dr. Wiley's musical style encompasses a broad spectrum of genres, all Christian oriented. Some of these styles include funky urban gospel, silky smooth jazz, jumpin' hip hop, spicy Latin, sophisticated R&B, and good ol' country. Rev. Wiley has written many songs for Christian artists in the Sacramento, California area. His 46+ years of experience and divine inspiration serve him well as he creates songs for local artists. He is the humble vessel that God is using to answer musical prayers. While Dr. Wiley is busy serving others, he also works on writing songs for, and producing, his own albums. Selections from Dr. Wiley's first solo gospel jazz (Smooth Jazz) album were played on 'Heavenly Notes' Christian jazz radio program hosted by Don Culpepper. More recently, selections from his album, A Brighter Day, were heard on radio station KDVS in Davis, California, on the program 'In Focus' hosted by Bernard Benson. Other CDs available by Harrel L.
