Although Rodney Greene has been around for awhile, he is finally coming into his own and getting some well deserved recognition in the music industry. Rodney has produced and released two Smooth Jazz album projects to date, “Nice n Slow”, and “Meditation of My Heart”.
Rodney is currently working on his third album which is scheduled for release in June 2023. Rodney has released a single off the album “Real Close” which features Billboard’s Smooth Jazz chart topping Saxophonist Jackiem Joyner who is a musical icon in his own right. The song made the Smooth Jazz charts for 16 consecutive weeks. Rodney has now scheduled his second single off the album titled “No Stoppin’”, which is sassy with an uptempo rhythmic groove and is sure to get you moving!
Rodney joined several rock, Latin, and R&B cover bands as a bass player and fill-in keyboardist playing the local club scene. “Playing other people’s music was great and all but I wanted to express my own artistic creativity and began writing and recording my own music”. As child of the “Old School” music era, “I grew up listening to a variety of R&B artists including EWF Earth, Wind, & Fire”, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Maze, Anita Baker, and so many others”.
“As the years progressed, I really began to gravitate to more contemporary gospel and smooth jazz music. These two types of musical genres always provided with me a sense of love, inner peace, and always gave me a positive outlook on life”. – Rodney Greene
