Title - Deep Secrets
Artist - Dee Brown
For those unaware, following his run of three successful radio singles, Innervision Records guitarist Dee Brown releases his first full length album in 3 1/2 years Deep Secrets (out September 3rd, 2021).
Although the album, featuring Dee’s irresistible combination of contemporary jazz, R&B, and Motown inspired soul, will sound familiar to long-time fans, this project goes further in revealing the spiritual and more grounded, mature side of Dee Brown - with the help of some terrific players such as Lin Rountree, Darryl Williams, Merlon Devine and label mate Blair Bryant.
1. Love You Too
2. Smooth Talk
3. The Prize
5. Make Up Your Mind
6. Wake Up
7. Praise Is What I Do (feat. Gerard Brooks and Merlon Devine)
8. Deep Secrets (feat. Blair Bryant)
9. Controlled Passion (feat. Merlon Devine)
10. Tie The Knot (feat. Lin Rountree)
11. Pretty Girl (Skylar)
Opening on the free flowing majesty of Love You Too and the gentle funk of Smooth Talk, Brown backs those up seamlessly with the lush R&B orchestrations of The Prize, the melodically low key Surrender, the upbeat and perky Make Up Your Mind and then we get the finger-snapping Wake Up.
Next up is one of my own personal favorites from this set, the orchestrally sweeping live track Praise Is What I Do (feat. Gerard Brooks and Merlon Devine) which is in turn followed by the funky hipsway of Deep Secrets (feat. Blair Bryant), the methodically creative Controlled Passion (feat. Merlon Devine), this simply divine new album then rounding out on the horn-imbed funk of Tie The Knot (feat. Lin Rountree), coming to a close on the George Benson-esque Pretty Girl (Skylar).
