Released in collaboration with Plug Research. St. Louis soul meets L.A. beat scene. Coultrain (aka Aaron Michael Frison aka Seymour Liberty) continues the story started on his previous self-released album The Adventures of Seymour Liberty, which received an 89/100 on Okayplayer and made Soulbounce.com's best of 2008 list. Coultrain is a purist. Self-described as "not for these times," "a revivalist," and a "futurist," his spiritual, soulful, conscious R&B owes credit to Lonnie Liston Smith, Patrice Rushen, Miles Davis, and Stevie Wonder, also not of these times. For fans of Platinum Pied Pipers, Waajeed, DJ Spinna, Black Spade, Onra, and Bilal, this smooth, synth-laced and beat-rich album also recalls the ballads from the immediate post-Purple Rain Prince albums, updated with a progressive soul posture. Coultrain has been featured on releases by Sureshot Symphony Solution (Nature Sounds), Hawthorne Headhunters (Plug Research), and Platinum Pied Pipers (Ubiquity), and has an unreleased full-length collaboration with Detroit legend Waajeed. From the artist bio: "he is an era-less figure -- equal parts king and fool, a performer who may not know where he is, but yet can still reveal the now to his audience like no other magician before."
