Reviewer :
Kaj Roth Format: Album

Label: Independent
Genre: Westcoast
Producer: Jorgen Carlsson/Steve Ferrone/John Jones
Artist discography


The cheap artwork and dull album title is enough to jump over this album in the record store or on the online stores, but if you against all odds should listen to a song or two from Jeff Young´s album you´re gonna notice that it´s a real nice R&B influenced westcoast rock record with jazz vibes.
Think Ray Charles, Phil Collins and Randy Goodrum in a big soup and you´ll get "Songs from a red Wurlitzer".

Jeff has written the songs on the electric piano and organ, his soulful voice is perfect for these kinda songs which sometimes bring thoughts to Bruce Hornsby´s jazz albums like for example the standout track "Somewhere under the radar".
The bluesy "Drive" could´ve been featured on an album by Eric Clapton while the R&B of "Hiding inside the shadows" lies closer to Steve Perry´s "Street talk".
Jeff shows his love for Ray Charles with the tribute "Brother Ray" that can be described as late night music, another cool thing about this album is that Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty, Eric Clapton) has co-produced 2 songs on which he´s also playing the drums.
