Kennedy Administration have that vibrant Soul/Jazz-Funk sound that only a really together Band can give us. Led by vocalist Kennedy, Keyboardist Ondre J Pivec, Drummer Nathaniel Townsley and bassist Chelton Grey and augmented by many other musicians including Horn section and strings on some tracks, the band really let rip through their eight original compositions and two outstanding covers. It is their unique up-tempo versions of Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ and Billy Preston’s ‘Will It go round in Circles’ which really hit home, bringing a new dimension and energy to these classics. Gregoire Maret guests on Harmonica on the beautiful ‘Don’t Forget To Smile’ . ‘Let’s Party’ has an old school early 80’s Groove. The excellent uplifting spoken word vocal ‘Let Go’ is in the style of say Elements Of Life. ‘it’s Over Now’ and ‘Nothing Else will Do’ are good tracks but to my ears unnecessarily spoiled by mid song raps. Overall a very good album introducing a new talent.
