I first met saxophonist Zdany Chisholm several years ago, when he was one of the musicians at my church. So, when I found out he moved to Atlanta to pursue his music career, I was thrilled to feature him here on Finding the B-Side. When he sent me his press kit, I was even more impressed with his work, as I then found out that he is also a producer and vocalist!
Zdany has certainly been busy building his career. He is the solo saxophonist for Cody ChesnuTT, and he is featured on ChesnuTT’s latest album, Landing on a Hundred. Zdany has also released his first album, Genesis and it’s definitely worth the money. He describes the album as “a creative fusion of smooth jazz sprinkled with the essence of R&B and garnished with a little heart and soul”. I’d say that’s definitely the right description. Find out for yourself by checking out two songs from Genesis below, Date Night and my favorite from the album, Be Somebody, which features Zdany as the vocalist.
Zdany is currently performing weekly; the video below is of a recent performance with the Fusion Triangle Band at Atlanta’s Museum Bar. Be sure to follow Zdany on Twitter to find out when he’ll be on a stage near you.
