New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Guitarist Blake Aaron has been featured multiple times on SiriusXM over the past week as part of Jazz Appreciation Month just as his vibrant new single, "VIVID," is preparing to bloom brightly. The third single issued in advance of his upcoming "Color and Passion" album, Aaron wrote and produced the multihued bouquet of invigorating instrumental dance music, power pop horns and glossy R&B grooves that surround fragrant stems of fresh electric jazz guitar flourishes. On the way to radio stations now with an April 24 playlist add date, the perfectly-timed spring fling should happily satiate listeners until Blake's sixth album streets this fall on Innervision Records.

Last Thursday, the national satellite radio broadcaster's Watercolors aired a live concert performance by Aaron recorded at the SiriusXM studios in Washington, DC. On Sunday, the guitarist who hosted his own nationally syndicated radio show for seven years hung out on the "Dave Koz Lounge" with the affable sax sensation. This week, Aaron served as guest DJ on Tuesday and although he took command of the air waves, he didn't sneak in the new single before the official add date.

"No, not yet," he chuckled. "'VIVID' is my feel good track of the spring/summer. With real Earth, Wind & Fire-style horns and tons of energetic, bright melodic hooks, I am proud to say that this is one of my most infectious grooves and most intense productions I've done to date. Vivid is how I try to live my life and it is how I try to teach my kids to live their lives. Be uniquely you - boldly and with passion. Be you - vividly."

Aaron's last collection, 2015's "Soul Stories," spawned five Billboard Top 10 singles. "Color and Passion" aims to continue his run of chart success with a chromatic and intense fusion of sounds and styles - funk, R&B, soul, jazz, rock, blues and Latin music. While the first three singles - "Summer Ride," "Godfather Brown" and "VIVID" - are upbeat and full of life, the disc will also include intimate ballads allowing Aaron to showcase his lyrically expressive guitar on downtempo numbers.

Aaron recently plied his soulful fretwork on three songs for urban-jazz chart-topper Najee's forthcoming set. The in-demand session player, sideman, producer and songwriter will celebrate his birthday with an April 29 concert at Southern California hotspot Spaghettini in Seal Beach where he will be joined by two-time Grammy winner Bill Champlin, a singer-songwriter and keyboardist who spent 28 years as a member of the legendary band Chicago. Aaron will hit the road Memorial Day Weekend for performances at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival in Florida (May 26), St. James Live! in Atlanta, GA on a bill shared with saxophonist Tom Braxton and vocalist Kevin Whalum (May 27), and a headline date with Braxton at The King Center in Melbourne, FL (May 28).
