United We Cure CD Released in Support of Fight Against Breast Cancer

Smooth jazz compilation features all original compositions by Mindi Abair, Brian Culbertson, Eric Darius and the late Wayman Tisdale

A new smooth jazz compilation in support of efforts to fight breast cancer has been released by a clothing company, Privacy Wear. The company, founded by Carolyn Jones, has dedicated itself to aligning its fashion product lines with the cause of fighting breast cancer. Jones’ mother, Jean Jones, died from that illness seven years ago and inspired by her mother’s struggles and counsel, Jones formed the company in 2002 with a unique mission to eradicate breast cancer.

"Statistics show that every 12 minutes a woman in America will die from complications associated with breast cancer," said Jones, in a statement on the company web site. "It is PrivacyWear's goal to end the lack of knowledge and help physicians and survivors find a cure."

PrivacyWear provides free mammograms to uninsured women across the country, finding a facility in their neighborhood that will give them a speedy appointment. PrivacyWear covers the full cost of the mammogram, including (if necessary) transportation to get to the appointment.

In addition, PrivacyWear participates in fundraising efforts for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Divas For A Cure, and other breast cancer organizations throughout the country. PrivacyWear donates up to 10% of its profits towards breast cancer research.

The project was produced by Rex Rideout and features all new material from an all-star collection of smooth jazz artists, including Mindi Abair, Brian Culbertson, Eric Darius, Paul Taylor, Euge Groove, Norman Brown and the late Wayman Tisdale. Jones, a fan of smooth jazz, has even used musicians like Adair to promote various product lines.
