It was a cold night in Kansas City followed by a snowy day. People were walking about as usual in Kansas City’s winter snow storm. That is not all too uncommon, since the past couple weeks Kansas City finally received its first major snow storm. However, little did a big jazz town know that a music legend was leaving his footprints in this great jazz town.
Most jazz lovers will readily recognize the name Wayne Shorter and his classic composition "Footprints". However, others might not be as familiar with the name Rudy Love and the footprints he has left in the music business. A select group of professionals rewarded for a year of hard work and company growth were treated to one night of this legend’s music.
When you hear Rudy Love’s golden voice and witness his polished stage presence, it is easy for even the novice to recognize something spectacular is happening right before your very eyes. Then you wonder where has this guy been all my life?
The music life and work of Rudy Love reads like a list of Who’s Who but, don’t wait for him to tell you. From his musical father Bob Love, Sr. of the hit songwriting team "Level and Love" ("Good Morning Little School Girl"), Sam Cooke, gospel, R&B, jazz, pop, soul to Little Richard, Isaac Hayes, Ray Charles, Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross and seems everyone else in between.
Maybe the song that most impressed me and demonstrated why he is in such demand by his peers and others in the music business was his version of Tony Bennett’s "Left my Heart in San Francisco". This song alone to me was worth all the tea in China!
Fortunately for consumers, this will be released on his new CD due in 2006.
Currently, Rudy Love is performing regularly in Las Vegas, Nevada and is planning a tour to support the release of his new CD. If you have not had a chance to hear him "live" put your foot on the ground, in a car, on a train or plane to see the show. You will be following a good set of prints. ###
