Incredibly Oli Lazarus’ Reel People project is almost 20 years old and the quality is as strong as ever on this 12 track album of artfully crafted covers, aptly named ‘Retroflection’. The line-up of guest vocalists is an embarrassment of riches with luminaries such as Mica Paris, Omar, Angie Stone, Tony Momrelle and Anthony David among others adding their contributions. Hard to pick standouts on an album that is so well crafted as a whole – check Basement Jaxx songstress Sharlene Hector’s uplifting take on ‘Always There’, Mica Paris’ cover of Alicia Myers Gospel-Soul ‘I Want To Thank You’ is an inspired choice while Yarbrough & Peoples’ ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ is given a new twist by Angie Stone. Tony Momrelle’s vocals glow on his cover of Bill Withers’ ‘Can We Pretend’, the ridiculously funky take on Pleasure’s ‘Joyous’ is a highlight while Omar’s unique tones grace Skipworth & Turner’s ‘Thinking About Your Love’. Anthony David’s take on Milton Wright’s ‘Keep It Up’ is another stunner. Much more to enjoy and discover here, too – highly accomplished stuff that fans of classic and modern sounds will love.
