The G Suite Album
Album Notes from AppleMusic: Welcome to the G Suite. The album title alone is a deft double entendre: On one hand, it evokes “suite” as in a collection of songs, and on the other, it invents “hang suite” as a hip euphemism for the celebrity hotel suite. Sit back and chill to the infectious beats and smooth piano styles of Gabe Carmona. As always, his piano work is spot on with its spatial performance that is never overwrought or overplayed. The same can be said for the simple and under assuming mellow madness of “Baby Love”. This track sets the tone of the album with a sensual dance between the guitar, piano and playful timpani hits. In perfect contrast, "The Gift" is hauntingly stunning and is only further accentuated by its equally inspiring guitar work. Revisiting his R&B roots, "Touch" takes you back to the smooth sounds of 90s R&B. Here, Gabe channels his early influences of Guy, Levert, Blackstreet, Jodeci, Mint Condition, Sade, Joe, Keith Sweat, New Edition and others. “Tonight Girl” conveniently describes The G Suite’s atmospherics with sexy sax hooks and piano solos. With "My Baby", Carmona captures the essence of his love for his muse and wife, Kristy. In its truest form, it is the sound of love. Staying true to his Ambient time-lapse productions, he created "Timeless" which is featured on The National Geographic Channel. Rounding out with "Its U" and ending with "Wifey", Gabe delivers a collection of truly artistic productions that are sure to leave any listener wanting more.
The G Suite shows that Carmona is completely at home in a musical world where R&B, HipHop, and Piano led Smooth Jazz are fused.
