Rachel Eckroth’s “Perfect Love,” which features Sy Smith, stemmed from a world tour with Jazz trumpeter, Chris Botti. “Perfect Love” blends jazz and soul perfectly, on a moderately uptempo track. A moment of peace calms your spirit.
Smith and Eckroth have been guests on each other’s live shows and/or solo albums, but this is their first single release as a duo of sorts. “Rachel had planted the seeds for this song for a while ago,” says Smith. “But the shelter-in-place order gave us both the opportunity to really sit with it, tend to it, and watch it fully grow into something we think is kinda stunning. It’s like a lush garden full of color and sounds, and I love it.”
“Perfect Love, started as a simple song and became a beautiful collaboration with musicians I highly admire. As producer, I wanted to present something with colorful sonic ideas and groove textures. These guys helped make my ideas a reality,” adds Rachel.
