Eddie & Drew
One of last year's most intriguing soul projects was DREW SCHULTZ'S 'Back Ro Class' album. Schultz – long-time drummer with the 4 Tops road band – put the album together with some of the remaining members of the Motown Funk Brothers session team and the music was a joyous celebration of classic uptown soul. More importantly a portion of the royalties went to worthy music projects in Detroit schools. On September 1st Drew will be following up the album by releasing a brand new single – 'Take It Slow' which features legendary guitarist EDDIE WILLIS – a key member of the Funk Brothers who's played on hits by Marvin Gaye, The Miracles, The Temptations, 4 Tops, Mary Wells and just about any other Motown artist you can name. The song's been specially written by Drew and features DELBERT NELSON on lead vocals. Nelson is a permanent member of the Funk Brothers touring team and the song is a great slice of old school soul. Once again half of all the profits from the single will go to music initiatives in Detroit's public schools.   (souandjazandfunk.com)
