Track Of The Day : "Keep The Music Alive" - Yvonne Gray (1975)




Amazing 1975 track from Yvonne Gray with piano, vibes, flute, dirty brass and building layers of percussion; and this powerhouse of a voice.

Give Yvonne the full four minutes - it's a builder - then grab the album from Dr Okeh's And it Don't Stop, nice 320 rip. He posted it back in May - I keep coming back to this track and at least two other killers with a similar lineup.

Please thank the good doktah for this medicine. Password is on his main page.

Yvonne Gray together with Sherman Marshall wrote "Lady Love" which became the enduring world hit recorded by Lou Rawls.

Thanks! I just discovered your site while in search of some Herbie Hanckock. And in this way also discovered miss Gray.
