‘Better With Time’ is the latest EP from Detroit writer, producer, drummer and arranger J CANADY. (the J stands for Jeff, by the way). Canady has an impressive CV; he started out aged just 7 and went on to play drums with the jazz ensemble Enchanted; then work with people like Dave McMurray, Chante Moore, Kenny Lattimore, Rahsaan Patterson, Rachelle Ferrell, Peter White, and Spyro Gyra soon followed.
He has a couple of solo projects under his belt but ‘Better With Time’ is his most soulful project to date. The set was inspired by the Whispers’ song ‘Just Gets Better With Time’ a song that Jeff heard a few years back and always felt he needed to cover. Canady’s smooth and infectious new take features the vocal skills of Herschel Boone, guitarist David P. Stevens, and saxophonist Randy Scott. The EP’s other focus tune is ‘Funktagus’ – the name says it all…. a bass driven funky jazz workout with trumpeter Willie Bradley and pianist/composer Demetrius Nabors.
