Driza Bone

In the news this week... Faith Evans closed out the week with a visit to “The Arsenio Hall Show” to perform “Tears of Joy” off her album R&B Divas, which is nominated for ‘Best R&B Album’ at the Grammys. Dressed in a black dress, the R&B veteran belted out the emotional single with conviction. During her chat with Arsenio she also opened up about the death of her late husband, the Notorious B.I.G.

Seventeen years after his murder, the case is still unsolved. “We basically stopped spending our money on trying to hope that the LAPD was gonna do their part,” said Faith. “It’s not closed. It’s just a matter of when they really feel like they wanna do the right thing ’cause we in our hearts kinda feel like we know what happened and we believe they know what happened.” (ThisisR&B.com)

 London-based jazz guitarist, Ronny Jordan died on Monday, 13th January. He was just 51. Details of the sad passing are scant. The news was simply announced on his brother's Facebook page. Ronny (real name Ronald Laurence Albert Simpson) was born in London in November 1962 and became a pioneer of the capital's Acid Jazz scene... though he preferred to call his style "Urban Jazz".

Driza Bone Biography:
Driza Bone is an international dance music / remixing musical ensemble, led by the record producers / musicians, Billy April and Vincent Garcia. They used various female vocalists to provide the vocal element to their output. Driza Bone (sometimes billed as Drizabone) were primarily popular in the early 1990s. They were named after the Driza-Bone brand of waterproof riding coats
The most successful remix single was of the American R&B singer Shanice's 1991 single, "I Love Your Smile". It surpassed the success of the original track, reaching #2 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart.

Driza Bone's most popular track, as an artist, was the song "Real Love", which reached #16 on the UK Singles Chart in June 1991 At the time of the single, Drizabone were mainstays April and Garcia, plus vocalist Sophie Jones. Jones had performed the original demo versions of the song, but was not really interested in a musical career, and Dee Heron (b. Jamaica, West Indies) gave up her secretary's job to take over her role.
