Tower of Power – Live at NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert 2018. It’s so nice to see the musicians have a good time doing what they love. These guys are a prime example of this. It’s so great to see a young singer in this genre. This guy is great and he is the luckiest person in the world to be so honored to perform with this group. The vocalist sounds just like the great Lenny Williams.
Awesome NPR Sound Engineers! They do amazing things with every artist that comes in here. Also behind the back of this group are a drummer and a bassist who simply punch with their rhythm. It’s a damn shame we don’t see the bassist and drummer playing them. The trumpeters are great, as are everyone involved in the project. Excellent material for connoisseurs of live sound.

“On the Soul Side of Town”
“So Very Hard to Go”
“What Is Hip?”
Kudos to the crew who engineered and wired up the sound. Wish more studio albums were recorded live with musicians playing off each other’s energy in close quarters. I think that is one of the greatest things about these Tiny Desk Concerts. It separates the true musicians from the hacks. They put it together and deliver it live…behind a tiny desk. That’s genuine stuff.
