He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother - Single - Project Grand Slam






Project Grand Slam's debut album, Play, features "The Captain of Her Heart" with internationally renowned guest vocalist Judie Tzuke. Her hit Stay With Me Till Dawn was chosen by the British public as one of the 50 best British songs from 1952-2002. "The Captain of Her Heart" was an international Top 10 hit in 1986 for the group Double. "Captain" was produced by Haim Cotton and Jan Roeg. An instrumental version is also included on the album.

The rest of Play features 11 original compositions by Project Grand Slam produced by the legendary Frank Filipetti (Grammy Award for James Taylor's Hourglass).

The musicians of Project Grand Slam are:

Robert Miller plays electric bass and composes. Robert has two albums as leader to his credit: Child's Play (Wildcat Records) and Prisoners of Love (32 Records), both of which received excellent reviews. The former album includes performances by Randy Brecker, Jon Lucien and Anton Fig. His band, The Robert Miller Group, played every major New York area club, graduating to the national festival circuit where they appeared with acts like Bruce Hornsby, Bela Fleck and Kenny Barron. In addition, as co-founder of 32 Records, Robert helped develop this celebrated record label that produced the acclaimed "Jazz For..." series, including "Jazz For A Rainy Afternoon", which dominated the Billboard Jazz Chart.

Ron Thaler is one of the most accomplished drummers in New York, having played on and/or produced more than 75 albums. His impressive credits include work with Al Di Meola, Hiram Bullock, Sarah McLachlan, Alicia Keys, Ashley Simpson, Debbie Gibson, Rob Thomas and Taj Mahal. Ron has also released three solo albums: …Works featuring Ray Anderson, Rufus Reid and Adam Rogers, Grain spotlighting Mike Stern, and Jazzed & Confused: The Led Zep Project including DJ Logic, Dweezil Zappa, and Hendrick Meurkens.

Gilad Ronen plays saxophone and is an accomplished master woodwind multi-instrumentalist and composer. He has recorded for numerous Hollywood films such as Anchorman and Raise Your Voice and the ABC series Eyes. In the recent past Gilad had worked with some of the greatest living jazz legends of our time, such as Herbie Hancock, Jack De Johnette, Brian Blade, Dianne Reeves, and Kenny Barron to name just a few.
