What can we say about this release but, "It's Great!" Urban Knight's second release is as classy and dynamic as the first. How could it be anything other than outstanding when you have an all-star cast consisting of Ramsey Lewis on keyboards, Gerald Albright and Najee on saxes, Jonathan Butler on guitar and vocals, Sonny Emory on drums, and Paulinho Da Costa on percussion. Each of these brilliant musicians can stand firmly on their own individual merits and talents. However, put them all together on this stellar collaboration and we have created a musical masterpiece.
Their work speaks mostly to the contemporary jazz lover. Nonetheless, most anyone can appreciate great music. On the "Get Up" track, Najee is the center of attention on soprano sax and flute. Najee adds his soothing touch to this tune while background vocals are done by Butler. Urban Knights has also created a funky sensual ballad on the "Come Dance With Me" track. This track features Butler's unmatched vocals along with Maggie Brown adding her thing to the mix. Love great music? Then get this one!
