La'mont Singletary is back with his new CD of contemporary
bosa nova music, currently all the rage on the West coast.
David has chosen to make a one hundred eighty degree turn
about with this Latin, Antonio Carlos Jobim like Brazilian
smooth groove. Superior in melody and in the tradition of
Sade, beginning with the first track 'Angel,' you're instantly
transported to a time when Deon Warwick was singing 'Do You
Know The Way To San Jose?' This piece reveals Singletary's
love of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, yet still keeps a New-Age,
or Now feel. The song 'Radio Freedom' enthralls with a bouncing
beat sending sonic waves to the right brain.
track 'Vibe," a Caribbean Island samba tune, embraces
the sprit of dance with a hypnotic beat sending one to that
long sought after place where music meets magic; it has a
unique hook tempered with a great danceable beat and is certainly
positioned for posterity. In the song 'Mid-Summer Gray Day,'
a haunting melody and melancholy in the best possible way,
one feels a sense of quiet reflection. 'Lupe,' the story-song
of a young woman growing up in the barrio, then disappearing
into an unfamiliar world, is a first rate dance-o-lot track
with soul much like Jose Feliciano. And his classical piece
entitled Father; composed and performed by David Singletary,
a lovely composition from the Singletary songbook.
Its Bach-like piano solo is further proof of Singletary's
excellence and demands a place for him among the vanguard
of our industry. A writer first, it is evident
this artist not only wants, but needs the listener to get
a picture of his memories projected through sound: never too
much, not wordy, just enough phrasing to paint a perfect picture
. . .the way AAA Pop should be. A>
