Claud Rivers Featuring Theo
Claud Rivers, a talented jazz saxophonist, displays his vocal songwriting skills on this CD. He has put together a combination of Urban and Pop songs that are all about love. You will immediately hear the jazz influence in his lyrics and vocal arrangements. He has created a unique sound that is smooth yet aurally interesting. Theo Foreman delivers a great vocal performance on all of the songs while Claud performs all the music. This duo has produced songs that are very pleasing to the ear and span various genres. At times (certain songs) Theo sounds a little like Smokey Robinson, Al Jarreau, and Al Downing. What a range! From the sound alike names, you readily know Theo must have a great vocal range. He does. You will enjoy listening to him sing these songs again and again. And if you have ever been in love or searching for love you will find a song that describes deep feeling you probably had or presently have today. The twelve song CD includes what can be dubbed a bonus track. This is the last track #12 which could be called -The Christmas Song for America - entitled "Sharing Christmas With Me." In the wake of hurricanes Katrina & Rita along with all the wars in which we have troops involved, this song just seems appropriate. Especially for those who have been separated from a loved one or who has not been separated but understanding how it must feel. Listen to the strong hook on the two minute sample of the song and I think you will agree. This is a CD you will want to own and listen to for years to come. It contains songs that will easily stand the test of time because they are about a subject as old as mankind: L-O-V-E.
