Superbly creative funky fun Don Paul – Love Over War

Superbly creative funky fun Don Paul – LOVE OVER WAR:  I’m a true fan of spoken-word, especially since that’s where I got my start in performance… author, bandleader and Grammy-nominated producer Don creates some of the most superbly creative funky fun you’ll ever hear on this great album. Check him out on YouTube first, please…

You’ll find several other albums and singles when you SUBSCRIBE to Don’s YouTube channel, too… I signed up right away.Songs like the closer, “Bobee (What A Spirit Walks That Way)” will definitely help you get your “rock on”… a splendid integration of vocals, horns and soulful funky singing that will be on DJ playlists everywhere, I assure you!

In addition to Don’s excellent vocals and spoken-word, you will also enjoy the players… Roger Lewis alto, baritone, tenor and soprano saxophones; Herlin Riley  drums-set, Kirk Joseph sousaphone, Michael Torregano Jr. piano and electronic keyboards, Mario Abney trumpet, Erica Falls guest singer; Dhyani Dharma slide-guitar on “My Old Man”; Kidd Jordan tenor saxophone and Morikeba Kouyate koraon “About Reinaldo Mourning and Outrage”; Don Paul bhodran on “A Baby’s Smile Is Sweet To See”… I was especially impressed with the soul-laden “Glory Glory Glory Is For Us All”… Erica’s vocal is strong and filled with life.

If it’s really the spoken-word you’re looking for, you will fall in love with my personal favorite of the ten tracks offered up… “About Reinaldo, Mourning, and Outrage“; I (most strongly) recommend that you listen to this with your headphones ON, folks!

I give Don and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating for this high-energy album, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on the Irresistible Records website.                Rotcod Zzaj
