North Coast Contemporary Jazz Saxophonist & Group hit the Stage at Nighttown! Featuring music from his brand new CD «Road Trip».

Over the past two decades, urban jazz icons Kirk Whalum and Jonathan Butler have paved the way for emerging artists to take a bolder approach to blending their passions for instrumental pop, jazz and soul and gospel music. While those two artists were well established before they began recording gospel and worship albums – and rarely blend the two styles on a single project – saxophonist Andre Cavor is unabashedly sharing his lifelong love for both styles of music from the get go.
True to its title, the Cleveland based performer’s independent debut album Road Trip chronicles his multi-faceted journey – starting with playing the sax in church and, over the past decade, founding and leading The Cavor Project, an 11 piece ensemble renowned as one of the most diverse bands in the city. Andre found the perfect producer to take his artistry to the next level in Darren Rahn, a saxophonist and artist who has worked his studio magic for Whalum and Butler in addition to genre greats Dave Koz, Wayman Tisdale, Najee, Eric Darius, Jeffrey Osborne and Jeff Lorber.
“Mixing contemporary jazz and gospel songs on Road Trip felt like a natural extension of my many live performances over the years,” says Andre, who first began playing the sax at 16 but let it go during his eight year stint in the army before rediscovering it in the early 2000s.
“So many people I have played for and entertained liked and responded emotionally to both sides of my artistry,” he adds. “When I started thinking about doing my first solo album, I thought I should share everything I truly love to do. Of course, I heard from some fellow sax players and other naysayers, telling me that new artists should never mix gospel and smooth jazz/R&B, that audiences won’t get it for some reason. My response was, ‘I honestly don’t think you were conceived to a gospel tune!’ and then told them I believed that people that love church and God also love R&B. I felt it was important to share my entire self with people. Including both on Road Trip was the perfect way to share my entire self with everyone.”
Andre laid the foundation for Road Trip with hundreds of performances as leader of The Cavor Project, which has been a mainstay on the Cleveland music scene since 2007. The band is known for infusing fresh, explosive energy into vocal and instrumental classics from the 80’s through 2017 and spicing up their set list with dynamic originals. The Cavor Project performs a grooving mix of R&B, smooth jazz, hip-hop, reggae, pop, blues, rock and gospel.
When I see the smiles on people’s faces when they hear my music, it’s an overwhelming feeling and confirmation that I’m doing exactly what I am put here to do. My goal is always to make people happy, and now with the release of Road Trip, I’m excited about reaching beyond my comfort zone and sharing the joy with more people.”
