Recently i was chillin' with TS crew members Juse1, Kerb & Spex & i was excited to tell them about Al Greens new project with ?uest love. They were like 'oh shit aint he dead yo"? haha. Far from it brah! I just had a listen *cough* ill buy the barstid dont you worry!
Check what EMIgroup had to say...
The project features the sophisticated R&B voices of singer-songwriters John Legend, Anthony Hamilton and Corinne Bailey Rae, and it was co-produced with Green by two of hip-hop’s most innovative players, drummer Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson from the Roots and keyboardist James Poyser, the go-to guy for high-profile artists ranging from Erykah Badu to Common. Add in Brooklyn’s celebrated Dap-King Horns (Sharon Jones, Amy Winehouse), guitarist Chalmers “Spanky” Alford (Mighty Clouds of Joy, Joss Stone) and bassist Adam Blackstone (Jill Scott, DJ Jazzy Jeff), among others, and you’ve got a modern soul-music dream team, fronted by the most expressive voice in the business.
“The reason why we are doing this is because we all idolize Al Green,” declares
?uestlove. “Even today, nobody has range like him.”
