ABOUT THE MUSIC!
Andrew’s decision to record his sparkling, high energy cover of The Isley Brothers’ early 70s funk classic “Work to Do” stemmed from hearing the tune randomly performed by a cover band one night and finally getting familiar with the original version after years of being acquainted with the Average White Band version. A powerful way to launch a truly Adventurous Soul, “Work To Do” features Andrew’s crisp fluid melody, his playful interaction with Eric Marienthal’s potent sax and irrepressible horn accents. Penned by Nils, “Love You More” is a pure balmy tropical flavored delight, with Andrew’s snappy melody riding soulfully over old school soul-jazz keyboard textures. Along the way, the island cool gives way to a burst of high octane jamming.
The bluesy, brassy funk jam “Milk Shake” and the dreamy, exotic “Samba Dulce” offer dynamic showcases for Andrew’s sizzling interaction with his guest stars. “Milk Shake” shows Andrew’s darker, bluesier electric edges while featuring some wild runs from Marienthal, the brassy sass of Johnny Britt’s trumpet and Ricky Lawson’s feisty groove. “Samba Dulce” reflects Andrew’s gentler side as his fluid guitar flows along with Jessy J’s sensual sax. Likewise, Jeff Lorber adds his inimitable retro-keyboard touches to the easy struttin’ title track. The most progressive production by Andrews is the globally conscious “Namaste Dance,” which blends old school soul atmospheres, hypnotic vocalizing and a thumping dance groove – all of which combines to create spiritual house music. Nils’ most dynamic turn behind the boards is the high energy twist on James Brown’s “Pass The Peas,” which features some fun shout outs of the title, a bluesy foundation and an infectious Euro Dance beat.
