Quiet Storm: Silhouettes

Silhouettes
No One
Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie
Farewell My Love
My Autumn Love
Sixty Minute Man
I Only Have Eyes For You
Ten Commandments of Love
Baby Please
This I Swear

"Silhouettes" is the debut recording by Quiet Storm - Kamau Akiba, Martin Bentley, Richard Hidlebird and Vincent Tucker. As much as we appreciate authentic Doo-Wop by pioneers who were cutting their harmonic teeth on east coast streetcorners before these guys were born, make no mistake-Quiet Storm can sing leads, deep, honey-smooth basslines and harmonize their butts off. And if you'll listen to the title tune, one of our favorite Doo-Wop chestnuts, you'll notice that it has a fresh new arrangement! Next, listen to the spoken material in "Farewell My Love," written by Motown founder Berry Gordy, Jr.; and then to the Bass lead in "Sixty Minute Man," and you'll realize that this is some of the most fun and entertaining Doo-Wop you've ever heard. "I Only Have Eyes For You" is a walking blues delight, "Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie" by Sun Ra and others, is big fun, and "My Autumn Love," "Ten Commandments of Love," "Baby, Please" and "This I Swear" all show off the remarkable voices of the four guys who call themselves Quiet Storm. If you'd like to see where Doo-Wop is going, treat yourself to "Silhouettes," one of the best of the year!
