Nights On Venus just released a new single, “Summer Madness”. This slow, instrumental piece relies on creating an ever-changing moody atmosphere to relax and calm you. With slower, jazzier ambiance that collectively builds throughout, this well done Nights On Venus release is one for the crowd that likes to slow dance and take it easy when listening to music.
“Summer Madness” was originally recorded by Kool and the Gang and can be found on their album “Light Of Worlds” from 1974. What I’ve tried to do in covering this song is retain the feel and vibe of the original while offering up my own take on this classic on its 40th anniversary with the addition of piano and vibes. First of all, I’ve always loved this song and in recording it, I’ve stayed as close to the original as possible. It is the single and advance track from the upcoming 4th album by Nights on Venus, “Perspective,” which will be released in November of 2014. A slightly longer version of the song will be available on the album as a bonus track”
