Just who is Ray
Chew and the Crew you
might ask yourself. Well they are sturring up alot of positive vibe
with their debut release 'Feelin'
is the mastermind behind the band that was formed in 1992 to be the
new house band for the TV show 'It's
Showtime at the Apollo'.
The band consists of Bobby
Douglas (vocals), Ralph
Rolle (drums), Artie
Reynolds (bass) and Joe
Grey (vocals) and
they were immediately a hit with the punters and performers alike.
Mr. Chew is a seasoned
veteran of both producing and performing working with the likes of Chaka
Pendergrass and Gladys
Knight and the Pips
to name a few over his 25 year career and his talent clearly shows
on the lead off single and title track - Feelin'
it a track that
is rich and lush and fresh from start to finish with a hint of funk
and jazz fusion to boot.
The album offers more of the
same with a tally of guest appearances including legendary vibe
master Roy Ayers,
soul mack diva Sandra
St Victor and
newcomer Lekule. A
great track and a great album indeed, a TY-D
Pick through and though.
