A long anticipated release, the songs of John L Nelson brought to life at Paisley Park by Sharon L. Nelson an an all star band led by the great Louis Hayes. Shelved for a time due to John L. Nelson's frequent collaborations with Prince, the music sheet music re-appeared in a rather serendipitous fashion and destiny was fulfilled. Sublime in its presentation, with classic melodies that the writer mastered, Don't Play With Love brings a rich past right to the present day. More information is available at www.ropeadope.com/jln

Yes indeed; New Orleans finest on top form!
Ever since Mr.Scott made such an impact with Marcus Miller's 'Tutu Revisited' project he has been on my radar. 'Christian a Tunde Adjuah' was a fine album but this is spectacular with Congo Square at its heart,I think...it has so many ideas and references that it is unclassifiable other than essential.
Miles Davis used to append the monogram 'New Directions In Music' to his Columbia albums...the same applies here.
