Silky but extremely sophisticated sounds here from singer-guitarist Ciyo Brown – think George Benson. Strong lyrics, excellent bass from ''Level'' Neville Malcolm, classy piano from Robin Aspland as ever and strings while slick not too intrusive that serve to up the romantic atmosphere. It's a long time since I remember going down to hear Ciyo in Smollensky's on the Strand. He's a lot less smooth and mannered here than in those distant days, a winning maturity and suave effortlessness winning through and the Ciyo guitar touch so sure and pleasurably arranged. Treat yourself.
