Miami, Florida (Top40 Charts/ Great Scott P.R.oductions) Jazz is collaborative by definition and contemporary jazz chart-topper Brian Culbertson is opening the door for users of the Kompoz site to utilize original tracks from his song "Beautiful Liar" as source material to create an entirely new song in a competition to be judged by the award-winning keyboardist, producer and songwriter behind 27 No.1 Billboard singles. The contest that started May 1 and runs through May 31, 2014 is the second collaboration between Culbertson and Kompoz, an online platform that enables crowd-sourced music creation globally.

Kompoz artists are tasked with creating a brand new song using the original tracks - including the evocative guitar solo etched by Steve Lukather (Toto) - while incorporating their own unique talents. Contestants may add vocals, keyboard solo, guitar riff, bass line, drum solo, horns — whatever they feel. Culbertson will select winners in three categories: Best Overall Collaboration, Best Collaboration with a new Kompoz member and Best Collaboration with 5 or more Kompoz members. Contest sponsors include; Roland Corporation, Boss, Lewitt Audio, Mogami Cables, IK Multimedia and Sony Creative Software.

A sweeping pop instrumental ballad, "Beautiful Liar" appears on Culbertson's newly released, "Another Long Night Out," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Albums chart where it reigned for four weeks. It is Culbertson's sixth album to debut at No. 1, his 14th album overall and the first released on the artist's BCM Entertainment label.

"Brian's appetite for innovation dates back to his experimentation with early sequencers at the age of twelve. This contest will allow musicians and Brian's fans to see how music can be created collaboratively online. Kompoz is very excited to have him join us again for the 'Another Long Night Out' collaboration contest. With Brian venturing out as an independent artist and Kompoz releasing a brand new platform, the timing is perfect to unite for another collaboration contest," stated Kompoz Founder Raf Fiol.

Culbertson was a 20-year-old DePaul University music major when he wrote, produced and recorded "Long Night Out" 20 years ago, which he revisits and re-imagines on "Another Long Night Out." The set features collaborations with many of the renowned contemporary jazz musicians that influenced and inspired him as he recorded the original on a shoestring budget. Instead of playing most of the instruments himself as he did on "Long Night Out," this time out the contemporary jazz heavyweight was joined by Lukather, Lee Ritenour, Chuck Loeb, Eric Marienthal, Rick Braun, Russ Freeman, Jonathan Butler, Candy Dulfer, Patches Stewart, Will Kennedy, Jimmy Haslip, Paul Jackson Jr., Ray Parker Jr., Nathan East, Jeff Kashiwa, Ricky Peterson and a 33-piece orchestra playing arrangements by David Benoit and Culbertson.
