Candy Dulfer Together Album Review

Candy Dulfer's album Together was released on April 14th.  If you have not heard the entire album, it will be worth your while to take the 67 minutes to experience the feeling. In short, this album is a masterclass on funk.  Dulfer shows precisely how an artist can take the style of the current musical landscape, and incorporate it with their signature sound.  Starting with her first album, Saxuality in 1990, Dulfer has always pushed the envelope, and this is evident as you listen ...

Album Review Just Funkin’ Around By Pieces Of A Dream

Pieces Of A Dream is back with a new album.  They have always been a favorite of mine, since back in the old days.  Remember the track Fo-Fi-Fo?  That was in tribute to the famous Moses Malone prediction for the 1983 NBA playoffs.  The founding members, keyboardist James Lloyd and drummer Curtis Harmon actually were discovered by Grover Washington, Jr. almost forty years ago!  Being together in the music biz for that long is an accomplishment. I guess you can call their sound fusion, ...
