In 1975, The Dramatics – original members Ron Banks and Willie Ford along with L.J. Reynolds, Larry “Squirrel” Demps and Lenny Mayes – signed with ABC Records: their first three albums for the label spawned R&B hits such as “Be My Girl” and a cover of Billy Paul’s “Me & Mrs. Jones”; for SHAKE IT WELL, the group continued working with producer Don Davis, reuniting with Tony Hester for two tracks, “Spaced Out Over You” and “Music Is Forever.”

For the SHAKE IT WELL sessions, producer Davis hired top session musicians including, Dennis Coffey, Ray Parker Jr., James Jamerson Sr. and Reginald Burke and the LP reached #10 on the R&B charts and #60 on the Top 200 Albums chart.

This reissue of SHAKE IT WELL marks its CD debut worldwide and was produced by David Nathan of SoulMusic.com, mastered by James Bragg of Chase The Ace, with artwork by Roger Williams and informative liner notes by renowned writer Matt Bauer featuring 2015 interviews with group members L.J. Reynolds and Willie Ford.

WILLIE BRADLEY (ft GERALD ALSTON): IN THE MEANTIME (SoulMusic Records/Platinum Garage Recordings)

Bold, yet simultaneously charming; edgy, yet at the same time beautiful; these seemingly opposite adjectives might well-describe the music of artist/trumpeteer Willie Bradley  but also fittingly tell about the man himself! Willie Bradley’s music brings together many varied styles, taking smooth jazz to a whole new level.

 

 

On his new CD project “Going With The Flow”, Willie (who has played consistently with the Original James Brown band in the US, Europe and Japan) has worked together with multi-award winning producer Preston Glass, (Kenny G., George Benson, Earth, Wind & Fire and many more) they have brought together a fantastic group of songs as well as a cast of stellar musicians with varied styles (Gregg Manning, Gerald Alston from The Manhattans, Bob Baldwin, Club Nouveau, and Jerry Martini of Sly & The Family Stone).

The first single, “In The Meantime” (written by Preston) is particularly timely in a world of constant change; it is also the first release of many planned in the association between renowned soul music entrepreneur David Nathan’s SoulMusic Records and Preston’s Platinum Garage Recordings.
