A fresh, jazzy remake of a classic Ashford and Simpson tune that was a big hit for Aretha Franklin and others. This is a new mix with some new piano parts and an edited length that's more radio friendly.
Piano and guitar trade melody sections as heard in the original versions.
OH LOVELY!! There are so many things I like here I won't be able to list them - the mix is clear, pristine, perfectly balanced, everything is just singing in the mix and there is a percolating energy that just doesn't quit - especially love the ebb and flow, like a river that pushes and turns elegantly and yet powerfully - what eloquent piano, expressive guitar, listen to that organ! and the bit of funk in there really sets it apart - well everything is soooo exceptionally fantastic. Really really really really enjoyed this.
Wow - funky bass, a great groove, great guitar work, and Joe Sample on piano! Or at least some heavy channeling of Joe... This is an impeccable track, and a great song. It is very well recorded, and I love the unexpected little bits like the wispy vocoder bits, and the sparkly sequencer climb in the middle of the tune.
Really, really nice, very commercial, and a great listen!
Really well-mixed with outstanding tone on all the instruments. I particularly loved the growl of the bass in between pops. Really suits the song. This is top-notch stuff.
Nice, swinging groove. Melodicism from gitgo. Never a dull moment. Excellent performance. Funkiness downright infectious. Is this a cover? (I ain't heard everything :). If not, I offer you my sincere respect. This is an all around great modern jazz composition and performance.
I was not aware that music smiled as this does..... happy, x 10..... great...........
