Anthony Strong- ‘Higher Ground’

Smooth jazz Stevie Wonder interpretation from Anthony Strong’s new album. It’s crisp and has magical percussive and brass sparkles with Anthony’s piano underneath. The track then explodes into a full big band extravaganza. This is quality musicianship and production all round. Perhaps Anthony might gain some big ‘cool points’ (whatever they are!) if he did something more experimental or edgy once in a while but you can tell here that he’s in his element and passionate about this kind of sound and it works a treat. He has to be up there with the best in this light jazz arena, plus his James Bond of Jazz look is very cool for different reasons. We’re stirred and shaken by this one.
