The Rippingtons featuring Russ Freeman
Yes, The Rippingtons are back with an album where every track is simply jaw dropping in nature! The current line up includes: Russ Freeman, Dace Karasony, Rico Belled, Bill Heller, Jeff Kashiwa. In addition, there is a great track on the CD entitled: Love Story with guest musician: Rick Braun.
Seal from the CD Soul
We featured this new release from Seal a few months back but this track is simply amazing in so many ways. Originally performed by Al Green back in 1972.
New York City
This track is from 1973 which hit the top 20 in the UK and the United States,
This week’s Bring it Back segment incluides:
Modern Sound Corporation
Bradley Leighton from the CD Back to the Funk
I’m not normally big on flute as this track heavily features it. However, the ancillary supporting instruments really complement it.

Cannon Ball Adderley and Joe Zawinul and we end the show with:

That’s it for this week’s show.
Until next time, enjoy the fun!
