Patti Austin was born in Harlem. She made her debut at the Apollo Theatre at age four and had her first recording contract with RCA when she was only five. Quincy Jones and Dinah Washington proclaimed themselves as her godparents. By the late 1960s she was a prolific session singer and commercial jingle singer. During the 1980s, she signed to Quincy’s Qwest Records. She charted twenty R&B songs between 1969 and 1991 and had success on the Hot Dance Music / Club Play Chart chart, where she had a number one with this track.

Phyllis Hyman, Loose Ends, and Jones Girls, chosen by Steve

17 12 2011

Phyllis Hyman – Don’t Tell Me, Tell Her Arista UK 1981.
Tucked away as a ‘B’ side to ‘You Sure look Good To Me’, here’s a slinky, sassy cut from a lady who surely had one of THE best voices in the business. Production is by Norman Connors and Chuck Jackson.

Loose Ends – Hold Tight 10 Records UK 1990.
Long after they’d had their massive soul and dance hits and tucked away as a track on their album ‘Look How Long’ comes this superbly atmospheric track from the band. One of those tracks to put on, when you’re just wanting to chill and mellow out.

Jones Girls – This Feeling’s Kiling Me PIR 1979.
Part- written but arranged and produced by Dexter Wansell from the eponymous LP ‘Jones Girls’, this track is another to heighten the mood, if and when it takes you and whatever that mood may be. It’s Pure class from a class act.

Martine GIrault, Harlem Underground Band, and Brand New Heavies, mixed by Steve

3 12 2011

Martine GIrault – Revival Opaz Records/FFRR Records 1992.

On first hearing this sounds as if it samples the riff in ‘Sneakin’ In The Back’ by Tom Scott & the LA Express, but on closer hearing I’m not so convinced. Either way, it’s a classy, sultry piece of music that I hope you find appealing. I love it. It made the UK charts on three separate occasions in ’92 # 53, ’93 # 37 and 1997 #61.

Harlem Underground Band – Smokin’ Cheeba Cheeba Paul Winley Records US 197?.

No-one really seems to know when this track was first released, but I’d guess sometime in the 70s. Looks who’s clever…NOT. At least it doesn’t try to disguise the subject matter of the song. It would appear that George Benson was either a member sometime or worked with this band, but even that is shrouded in mystery, as none of his trademark playing can be heard.

Brand New Heavies – BNH ~ Acid Jazz ~ 1991

The opening track from their 1990 debut album on Acid Jazz ‘The Brand New Heavies’, what a statement of intent! The sort of jazzy funky groove.
