Coming To You Live
1980 album for Columbia from Charles Earland ‘Coming To You Live’ includes an impressive array of names among its contributors. The undoubted big cut here is the title track – a wonderful Hancock-esq slab of Jazz Funk with soulful vocals wrapped up in a groove that has (and continues to) rocked dancefloors for decades. ‘I Never Will Tell’ is a superb stepper with Earland’s organ lines bubbling in a and out, tracks such as ‘Cornbread’ and ‘Zee Funkin’ Space’ show that early NY fusion flavor coming through that would give birth to smooth jazz (though these aren’t smooth jazz!) while the mellow ‘The Woman In You’ a nice soulful moment. ‘Take Me To Heaven’ is a superb slow burner with Charles Hammond really cooking in the second half. Great album.
