Review: Soul singer Julie Dexter, one-time vocalist with Courtney Pine, originally from the UK but now living in Atlanta, teams up with India Arie's bass player Khari Simmons (also leader of the jazz-soul group Jiva) for a very special new album project reviving the Soul Bossa style.
And they choose to accompany it with this 12" vinyl revisiting one of Swing Out Sister's finest moments 'Fooled By A Smile', featured here in its album version and in a stunning broken-beats Incognito remix and instrumental. Completing the 4-track vinyl is an extended dancefloor workout of Khari's original tune 'The Dove' (Jiva remix).
The album, Moon Bossa, also for release in July, pays homage to the Seventies and Eighties and a great variety of songwriters like Sergio Mendes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Basia, Swing Out Sister and Everything But The Girl, as well as a handful of new tunes in the bossa nova genre. Incognito's Bluey has known Khari and Julie for many years and was happy to act as A&R Consultant for the album.
