The Lewis Express - The Lewis ExpressATA Records
Based in Leeds, The Lewis Express pays tribute to the sixties soul jazz trio Young Holt that also featured famed pianist Ramsey Lewis. With recurring members from the ATA label they revisit a time where jazz and RnB lived side by side. "Love Can Turn A Man" is a slow burning piano driven tune featuring pianist George Cooper. "Cancao De Momento" is an upbeat funky Latin tune with a stirring piano intro followed up with spirited percussion from Pete Williams. "Brother Move On" is a classic soul jazz tune that features funky horn arrangements to complement the double bass work of Neil Innes. This is another strong release from the emerging ATA label that will get a warm reception from funk and soul enthusiasts.
