Review: At the time of his passing in 2017, the late, great soul star Leon Ware was working on a new album with long-time collaborator Taylor Graves. Although he never finished it, Be With has decided to put together a final posthumous album that contains the five songs he finished for the set - which, impressively, include cameos from the likes of Kamasi Washington and Thundercat - and six cuts from an obscure, Japan-only CD from 2013. It's a wonderful listen from start to finish, with the Latin-tinged soul-jazz of "For The Rainbow", the head-nodding boogie business of "Sigh" and the synth-laden, strangely swung brilliance of "Are You Ready" amongst the highlights.

I Wanna Be Where You Are

Soul
  1. I Wanna Be Where You Are (3:34)
  2. Instant Love (with Minnie Riperton) (3:29)
Review: "I Wanna Be Where You Are" was a song written by Arthur Ross for Michael Jackson in 1972 and covered here by co-writer Leon Ware. It appeared on his 1976 album Musical Massage, released on Motown. The album featured guests such as Minnie Riperton (vocals on "Instant Love" the B-side cut featured here), Bobby Womack and of course Marvin Gaye - who ended up doing a cover also. Not to mention the likes of Zulema, Willie Hutch, Jason Weaver and later The Fugees. Ware and Ross also penned the classic Marvin Gaye hit, "I Want You" several years afterwards, in addition to working with Quincy Jones and Maxwell. Ware passed away in 2017, at the age of 77.

Review: Few writer/singer/producer talents command legendary status like Leon. With a CV that lists Jackson, Gaye and Jones (among many others) and a rich discography himself, 76-year-old Ware has been behind a vast amount of soul gold over the years. This second album from 1976 is one of the many highlights from his personal repertoire. His only Motown released album, it's a smooth soul adventure with less big band dynamics of his contemporaries and a stripped back backing orchestration. Highlights include the deep shades of Trouble Man on the vocal layers of "Body Heat", the minor key introspection of "Holiday" and proto Balearic wooziness of "Musical Massage".

Why I Came To California
Cat: LW 712015. Rel: 11 May 15
Soul
  1. Why I Came To California (4:09)
  2. Rockin' You Eternally (4:19)
Review: Released in celebration of Expansion's recent re-serving of two of Leon's early 80s albums - Rockin' You Eternally and Leon Ware - here's a delightful 45 that reminds us of his finest solo moments. "Why I Came To California" is a sun-kissed soul boogie groove with big horns and even bigger chorus. "Rockin' You Eternally" (which is, let's face it, one of the smoothest song titles to ever come from the 80s) showcases Leon's softer side. A ballad steeped in sentiment, play this loud enough and everyone in a five mile radius will stop and get smoochy.
