4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant summerey grooves., 13 Jun 2011
This review is from: Across The World (Audio CD)
The British jazz-funk combo Shakatak formed in London in 1980.
Originally comprising keyboardists Bill Sharpe and Nigel Wright, guitarist Keith Winter, bassist Steve Underwood and drummer Roger Odell, the group quickly scored an underground hit with its debut single "Steppin'", cracking the British Top 50 the following year with the singles "Livin' in the UK" and "Brazilian Dawn".
After a number of successful top-twenty singles in the UK, the band went on to score unprecedented international success with the release of the classic "Night Birds", and the title track has now become a standard in the popular music repertoire.
Along with this successful recording career, Shakatak had firmly established themselves as a vibrant live act, combining astute musicianship with a sense of fun that communicated strongly with world-wide audiences.
Fans of the smooth Fusion of Shakatak will love this set of languid grooves with standouts like the mellow tunes "So High" and "Waterfalls".
"Love Holds The Key" has more of an eighties style Jazz Funk groove.
"Chance of A Lifetime" and Smile" are typical Shakatak vocal cuts.
In short, "Across The World" is a pleasant sets of summer time grooves.
Peronnel: Jill Seward (lead vocals), Bill Sharpe (keys), Keith Winter (guitar), George Anderson (bass) and Roger Odell (drums).
