Stevie Hawkins : Georgia On My Mind
Genre: Soul/Blues/Jazz
     

Stevie Hawkins Georgia On My Mind album cover

Music lovers of jazzy blues, this is a passionate, emotionally infused performance of the Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell classic. The arrangement is dynamic, loaded with feel and live orchestration. If you like classics, then you will love this rendition.

One might assume a remake of this song is pointless and would fall short after Ray Charles' stamp was placed on it.   However, music making simply doesn't get any better than on this classic. Hawkins, a man of understated musical sophistication went into the studio for one-day and recorded a timeless, definitive, and fully orchestrated performance of the song with straightforward simplicity, mapping out the lyric with his mastery of vocal phrasing and clarity. If you do not know of Hawkins or his recordings, this magnificent new rendition of Georgia On My Mind is a honey pot attraction, an essential purchase, and jaw-dropping good.

High Time is an eclectic 18 song album of authentic Blues, Soul, Rock, Spiritual and Soul songs. Songs that relate to life and times, love and relationships, dancing and simply having fun. The "musicians having fun" aspect is apparent on several of the tracks as in "Take Me Back To Memphis", a song that does what the title says, takes us back to the early 1970s with a funky - soulful classic Stax Records vibe.

Via Hawkins vocal and drum styling and the soulful guitar work of Drew Stawin and Johnny "Guitar" Brown, the expressive tenor sax of Wally Tarado, the grooving bass of Terrell "Cool" Robinson, the dynamic Atlanta Horns, and other supporting musicians, High Time takes us on a wonderful musical journey through the sounds, moods and grooves of the late 1960s to the mid 1970s.

If you're into Chicago Blues, Memphis Soul, Funk and East/West Coast R&B, then High Time is a not to miss album!  Have a High Time listening!
