Fiona's Comments

Marion Meadows new album has something for everyone, alternating between Bob Baldwin, Rahni Song and Carlos Pennisi on keys. This track is a nicely arranged funky number with a reggae/Marcus Miller vibe.

About the Album

Soprano saxophonist Marion Meadows returns with Whisper, his first new album in four years. Eliciting his trademark sound on the funky and hypnotic “Black Pearl," other stand-out cuts on Marion's Shanachie debut include "Bottoms Up (feat. Bob Baldwin)" and soulful renditions of Dave Grusin's "Marcosinho" and the Freddie Hubbard CTI classic "Sky Dive".
