Shades of Blue (1999) (HALF NOTE RECORDS) (13 TRACKS)
Ben E. King

Album Description:

SHADES OF BLUE is the 18th album released in 1993 by American R&B and Soul singer Ben E. King.

Ben E. King is best known for his rhythm & blues recordings, so SHADES OF BLUE is a return to his roots. He is accompanied by a band led by trumpeter Tim Ouimette that includes a single guest appearance apiece by tenor saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman and vibraphonist Milt Jackson. The orchestra is very much in the Count Basie groove, King adds a lot of soul to the lyrics without improvising much, and the music swings in a pleasing fashion. Among the selections King performs are "Just for a Thrill," "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "Stairway to the Stars," and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home." Results are extraordinary and easy to enjoy. This is a happy set with material delivered by a true master.

Recorded at Park West Studios, Brooklyn, New York.
