Special K

CD (Item 613174) Fantasy, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 11

A sweet set of 80s groove material from keyboardist Kevin Toney – recording here away from The Blackbyrds, but still very much in a Fantasy Records mode! The set's kind of a "jazz fusion plus soul" outing – and features players that include Paul Jackson Jr, Bill Summers, Oscar Brashear, and Ray Obiedo – as well as vocalists Aaron Mills and Alton Green. Tracks are more electric than work by The Blackbyrds, but have a jazzy soul approach that's quite similar to work by Roy Ayers or Donald Byrd from the same time period. Titles include "Naima", "A Good Feeling", "Special K", "On Your Feet", "Chasin Rainbows", and "Spread The Word". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A strange title for a first record – but quite fitting, given the impact that Erykah Badu has had on soul music! The record defines a whole new style of expression – "Baduizm", if you will – one in which Erykah sings with a depth that stretches back through a century's ... CD
