This week's show is filled with tracks produced, sung, written or co-written by one of my favorite producers: mr Leon Ware.
He's been so influential, for me & countless other artists in R&B, soul, jazz .. for decades!
The list of songs and artists he's been involved with is ridiculous and he is responsible for the birth of more than one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE SONGS. 'Wanna be where you are' (Michael Jackson), "I want you" (Marvin Gaye) or Inside my Love (Minnie Riperton) -Absolute classics.
His signature: Sensual and truly amazing lyrics combined with 'Leon chords'!
Had the honour to work with him in different stages of my career & when I called him for my 2nd album,
he had a tune for me: 'Where love lives' written by him & and El DeBarge. I think I screamed!
Leon is playing in Amsterdam on Febr 2nd, so apart from new the Chris Dave & Osjunlade in this show, it's all about Leon!
