Michael Henderson — Wide Receiver (with bonus tracks) ... CD

A soaring standout from Michael Henderson – proof that his move from jazz bassist to lead soul star was a great one! The album's got a tight groove that's right on the money – a style that's rooted in funky jazz, yet delivered with some straight soulful lyrics too – balancing things out perfectly for an audience that Henderson never would have hoped to reach a few years before! The overall format is very much in the style of the Norman Connors blend of jazz and funk – where Henderson got his start as a singer – and the vocals are nicely mixed with some great instrumental lines, too. Titles include "Reach Out For Me", "Wide Receiver", "I Don't Need Nobody Else", "Prove It", and "Ask The Lonely". (Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Enchantment
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+
Soaring grooves and mellow moments – a perfect blend of 70s soul styles, summed up here beautifully by Enchantment!
