O’s Notes: Tower Of Power is back with more of the tried and true formula that has made them a legendary band: funky guitar licks, soulful vocals, a cool bass line and the famous TOP horns! The entire program consists of covers of some of the best soul tunes. But they make it fresh putting their own twist on things and adding wealth of guest singers. TOP vocalist Larry Braggs shines on “Me & Mrs. Jones” and “What Is He?” He teams up with Joss Stone for “It Takes Two” and “Your Precious Love”. Huey Lewis shows up on “634-5789” and Tom Jones joins Larry for “I Thank You”. The true essence of TOP comes through on their dedication to James Brown, “Star Time”, a medley that unleashes the power of the brass, the funky rhythms and Braggs doing his thing! They help usher soul into the new millennium.
