Why do I enjoy Leon Ware, and why is he so "unknown"?? I think it is because his compositions are far more complex than the usual "steppers soul music" that becomes a "hit"- the melodies arent instantly hummable "ditties", there is songwriting craft at work here, hehehehe!
You hear the smooth chord progressions, born of the marriage of classic "doo-wop" and jazz style chord progressions,and Ware's passionate vocal delivery. The incredible basslines of Chuck Rainey, and soul jazz guitar of David T. The ballad, "Deeper Than Love" is beautiful, and hints of his collaboration and influence on Marvin Gaye's best efforts.
Give this cd a go, and pick up a nice companion in Marvin Gayes' "I Want You" if you dont own it already. This is second review, first was not complete before I accidently sent it.
As stated the album tracks keep coming at you taking you higher and higher from the beginng track to the end of the album. The first time I heard this album I thought I was listening to marvin gaye,not realizing that leon and marvin had known each other for quite some time,that this same leon wrote and sang on the"I want you".
Its really a shame because of fate that they hadn't collaberated on more projects together. Getting back to leon. Thats the difference between classic soul and some of todays music. It is my sincerest hope that leon will one day come to the Berkeley bay area and perform, we all know he's also a great producer! Eugene F. It does not measure up to his things to come.
