With the release of his new jazz single “You Know That I’ve Loved You (For A Long, Long Time),” eclectic artist Sky Canyon intends to make a meaningful impact and expand his fan base. This enlivening and melodic track is sure to put the listener into a relaxing, upbeat mood, rooted within Sky’s and his accompanying musicians’ stellar jazz performance.
“You Know That I’ve Loved You (For A Long, Long Time)” is a masterful composition that will mesmerize and light the senses up. Drawing inspiration from the likes of some of his favorite musicians, including Lionel Hampton, Terry Gibbs, Bill Evans, Monty Alexander, Carlos Santana, John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson, Keith Jarrett, Miles Davis, Buddy Rich and many others, this dynamic artist will no doubt please the crowd with this catchy, dynamic piece.
Regarding his musical tastes and expression, Sky commented: “I’m motivated by how music can take me so many places, especially as I am an avid fan of jazz, rock, pop, classical, Latin, hip-hop and so much more. I wrote this piece originally as a classic swing tune, then felt inspired to shift it to a more Latin Jazz feel and love how it turned out. Musicians – and music aficionados alike – know that great music, and all great art in any form, inspires and lifts us up.”
Released on August 8th, 2021, “You Know That I’ve Loved You (For A Long, Long Time)” features artists Bob Rebholz on alto sax (check out his awesome solo), Justin Adams spinning magic on piano and Sky Canyon showcasing his talents on the vibraphone and drums/percussion.

A veteran of over 50 years in music, Sky Canyon is a composer, producer and artist strongly rooted in the world of jazz as well as rock, classical (he was a principal percussionist in symphony orchestras), Latin, and new age music. His love of jazz since an early age, and having studied with jazz vibraphone master Terry Gibbs, inspire his current musical creations. Sky produced best-selling albums in the new age genre with Watercourse Media, but is back to his roots these days, releasing jazz originals and classic standards. An interesting note: Sky is truly eclectic; he was president and publisher in the early days of New World Library, a book publisher famous for many best-selling self-help books.
