Music is a type of dreaming as the lyrics have it. Track of the day - new in our 1 luv section: There is such a great coming together across vocals and instrumentals in the arrangement here from keys maven Charlie Stacey with once again wonderful vocals from Vula Malinga and the great Jay Phelps at his considerable best on trumpet. Malinga was also stunning this year singing backing vocals on Kurt Elling's lit up inside strutting take on Doc Pomus' 'Lonely Avenue'. Stacey's solo on 'Music is Healing' is yet another highlight of a fine track where the lyrics and the melody both hit the bull's eye. All the strands come together in the looser free spree that leads to the outro. Drawn from The Light Beyond Time which is released next week. Let the vision inside you grow - again deferring to the lyrics.
