Isaac's finest 12 minutes,
This review is from: To Be Continued: Remastered (Audio CD)
Worthy of the purchase price alone, 'To Be Continued...' includes two of Black Moses' greatest recordings, his take on 'You've Lost that Lovin' Feeling' arguably transcended by its instrumental precursor, 'Isaac's Moods'. Both pieces are among Hayes' greatest achievements as an orchestrator, the use of horn and string sections creating plenty of atmosphere and colour, both sassy and sexy.
If the remainder of the album doesn't quite live up to these high standards, that shouldn't discourage anyone with even a passing interest in Hayes' music for whom this album will be indispensible. Put simply it contains Hayes' most spectacular 12 minutes or so on disc, ahead even of the dazzling "Joy".
