about

After 3 heavyweight 45s, all of which have found heavy rotation in funk spots around the globe, the BABY CHARLES album is a delight to behold. Soul diva Dionne Charles delivers her unique, self-penned stunning vocal performance, while the remaining eight lay down the heavy funk grooves. Throughout the 12 tracks, the band display a range of styles which reflect their diverse influences. There's the Latin inspired bass groove in "Treading Water", the Meter's style funk of "Invisible", the James Brown influence on "Hard Man" and "No Controlling Me", there's even some Egyptian Jazz thrown in the mix on the instrumental track "The Sphinx". Moreover, this album includes a funk & afrobeat cover of The Artic Monkeys "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" plus a version of DJ Shadows "This Time".
