CLEVELAND PARKER aka LEE McDONALD – HOW LONG / RONFO & KINDRED SPIRITS ORCHESTRA – DON’T LET HIM GET THE BEST OF YOU
As always, I am thrilled and excited to announce our latest offering, in true IZIPHO SOUL style we keep the bar high and the music varied.
Once again we are proud to collaborate with Ron Foster: genius arranger, producer and dear friend of dearly departed real soul man Cleveland Parker aka Lee McDonald.
HOW LONG is a gospel interpretation of the title track of Lee’s rare soul LP SWEET MAGIC, I believe this version takes it to the next level, Lee’s vocals are just so powerfully magnificent!
DON’T LET HIM GET THE BEST OF YOU is an instrumental version and a totally different translation of the Whirlwind (Roulette) song. Ron Foster’s full 21+ piece orchestra delivers layers of strings and things, building to a hypnotic finale!
I want to thank my good friend Dionisis Dimos for regularly featuring the music of Ron Foster on his excellent Soul Dennis' Time radio show on CONI ON-AIR every Sunday evening 8pm to 10pm (GMT+3)
I also want to thank my good friend Tamas Bogyo for the introduction to Ron and for his great radio show The Soul Session https://hearthis.at/909-jazzy/set/soul-session/?fbclid=IwAR0sbcjq8EY97TNXFIiD0Z_9Iz_32gNGAtBgr8gl0BEsut_IcwEzbccEys4
