Review:
Post-Atlantic work from Robin Kenyatta -- but a record that follows in a very similar mode! This date was done for the Wolf subsidiary of TK Records, but it's got a very hip New York groove -- one that's almost even more righteous than some of Robin's earlier work, with some excellent arrangements from Arthur Jenkins -- who's managed to fill the set with a great sense of soul! Kenyatta's keyboards are set up with keyboards from Jenkins and Richard Tee, plus bass, guitar, percussion, and some great backing vocals at points -- used sparingly, but in ways that almost remind us of Oneness Of Juju at some of their smoother moments. Kenyatta's reeds have a Plunky-like feel too -- more inside than the Juju work of the mid 70s, but pointing towards Plunky's smoother sounds to come. Given that the vocal group features Gwen Guthrie, Vivian Cherry, and Patti Austin, you can bet they sound pretty sweet -- and titles on the set include "Love Me", "Oh Oh Oh", "You", "Bluebird", and "Of Life & Love".
