Michael Jackson – Human Nature
Blissful, soulful track, reminds me of being young, listening to the Thriller Album on my Sony Walkman.
Rotary Connection – We Are The Black Gold of the Sun
An absolute classic, the piano riff and the vocals. Pure class and deeply soulful. I love all they did.
George Benson – Give Me The Night
Herbie Hancock on keys, George on vocals, what’s not to love!
Maceo Parker – Cross The Tracks
The song I share with my sister Charlotte as one of our favourites! Get’s us on our feet every time! FONK!!
The Shapeshifters – Lolas Theme
Classic, soulful house at its best! How can you not dance to this? Hands in the air anthem!
ee Morgan – The Sidewinder
Coming from a jazz background I have to say this track hits all the right notes! Groovy as hell!
Sarah Vaughn – Make The City Ours
My jazz roots also cover the sounds of Brazil, Milton Nascimento wrote so many beautiful melodies. This one I’ve played with my band so many times, it never gets old! And the middle 8 is sublime!
Talk Talk – It’s My Life
My funeral song! Lol! Classic 1980s pop, bad hair, bad fashion and a great video!
Ella Fitzgerald – Lullaby Of Bird Land
A jazz standard, I’ve sung it so many times! Ella sings it the best though, pure class.
Weather Report – Birdland
Joe Zawinul, Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter, Airto Moreira, Wayne Shorter, Steve Gadd.. the giants of jazz, soul, funk all passed through this band!! Enuff said!
