A collaboration nearly 40 years in the making, Super Soul Session! is the dynamic pairing of Bronx, New York natives Arlen Roth, "Master of the Telecaster," and Jerry Jemmott, "The Groovemaster!" covering thirteen nostalgic tracks dedicated to the musical icons who made them. Co-produced by Arlen and Alex Salzman, session artists include Bruce Katz (organ, piano), Tom Gage (rhythm guitar) and Chris Parker (drums), The Uptown Horns, and with special vocal appearances from Joe Louis Walker and Mukamuri, from Africa.

"It's not often one is introduced to an artist as multi-talented as Arlen Roth," says Betsie Brown, Blue Heart Records co-owner. "It goes without saying that we are delighted to be working this wonderful project from Arlen and his compadre, Jerry Jemmott."

"It sure is an honor to finally have finished this R&B and Soul project with my longtime partner and legendary bassist, Jerry Jemmott," says Roth. Jerry's credits read like a 'Who's Who' of music, and some of these songs are even records he ORIGINALLY played on back in the day! It was a joy to make this record, and I believe it brought out the best in both me and Jerry! SUPER SOUL SESSION, indeed!!"

Preorders for Super Soul Session! begin May 19, 2023.
