8) Give Me Your Best) Shot!

Great 80s jazz-funk album of Saxofonist Gary Bartz on Arists records. This album is produced by James Mtume and Reggie Lucas of Mtume. The sound of this album is typical Mtume for these years. Think of Phyllis Hyman and 'Search Of the Rainbow' especially when Tawatha sing on 'Keep Goin' On', great tune by the way. Another great track is 'Give Me Your Best) Shot!' Other musicians that worked on this album are Howard King (drums), Hubert Eaves II (Keyboards) and on bass Basil Fearrington. It reached #71 in the Billboard R&B Chart where it stays only for two weeks. A shame.

Great late seventies album by Donald Byrd. Two tracks are outstanding. 'Thank You For Funking Up My Life' written by Kevin Toney, and Art Posey. This song is a funky track with the right ingredients as the Bass, and Horns. The other superb track is Loving You. Nice bass sounds, horns and melody line.'Sunning in your sunshine' is slow jazzy track with Syreeta Wright on Vocals. Other interesting tracks are 'In love with you' and 'Close you eyes and look within'. Every track on this album become better each minute you listen to it.

5) Come A Little Bit Closer
6) You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

Featuring the Late Great Luther Vandross Easily overlooked at the time- a rare gem of early developing superstar and almost superstar artists: Luther Vandross, Ron Richardson, Kleeer's Norman Durham and Woody Cunningham, Sharon Redd, Jocelyn Brown, Melvin Sparks and those gorgeous Arthur Clark strings-all dynamically rearranging a host of R&B and POP standards in a Disco/Dance style. Not as corny or limiting as you might suspect- as there is enough genuine genius going on here to rescue what could be seen as a lame disco cash-in and instead turning it into a proto-remixed/reimagined project filled with top musicians~! It all comes across very nicely in that style popularized on the Bionic Boogie albums by mixer Godfrey Diamond and vocal arrangements by Luther Vandross. Don't believe what the credits say, that Luther only sings on one track. He is very much ALL OVER this record- giving the same sort of quality soulful kick he gave to Mascara, New York City Band or Change~!.
