Papa Was a Rolling Stone - Single
We always look forward to the monthly new single from ace r&b collective Bill King's Rhythm Express, and they deliver another winner in the seventh of the series. "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" is one of the greatest r&b songs ever, and The Temptations classic is given a very fresh remake here. Three fine guest vocalists (Michael Dunston, Selena Evangeline and Ammoye) are featured, while the playing here keeps up RE's consistently high quality. Mainman King produced, arranged and played keyboards on the cut, one of his fave tunes growing up.
The band play the Trius Jazz Festival in Niagara on the Lake, on July 11 and the Beaches Jazz Festival in Toronto on July 26.
