Description

Rare early 70s dancer, drenched in all the right ingredients, making it totally perfect for dancefloor action, irresistible rhythms, that are pleasuring rare soul clubs across the globe. An addictive blend of Soul n’ Jazz.

Jazzy guitar picks decorate this inviting dance tune, stabbing keyboard pulses, accomplish tenor sax augments this Ashford & Simpson composition, an infectious platform for a mysterious Massachusetts duet. Tiajuana giving up the reaching lone vocal, with Tommy Bryant providing the enriching layer of skilled saxophone expression.

This one-off recording from the so far mysterious T & T featuring Tommy Bryant and his lady partner Tiajuana. It is not clear who "Tiajuana" actually is, same goes for "Tommy Bryant"; is he the same guy who recorded for T-Neck or the veteran jazz artist? So far We have found the artist information sparse and unclear. An Ashford & Simpson composition, that comes under the umbrella of "Jobette" that Diana Ross recorded in 1970, released as a LP track. Unfortunately like the majority of ms. Ross’ later work; far too “saccharin” for real rare-soul dancefloor impact.

What is clear though, is this independent E. W. Brown production, on his own Boston based label is the first of four releases none of which made any significant local sales. All are elusive and the second time Mr. Brown utilized a Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson composition. The other being the excellent, but not as rare, Arlene Bailey "Ain't That Something".

Who ever this couple were, they give up an uncomplicated early 70's dancer, that carries the required “edge” to get noticed; Simultaneously making waves on the British & European rare-soul dance scene for quite some time now.

Listen this infectious, lilting shuffler; you'll find, is beyond impressive.
