The Decoders featuring Andrée Belle: "Young, Willing & Able" (Mello Music Group)
The mighty Decoders offered up the second single from their upcoming “Adventures From Paradise: A Tribute To Minnie Riperton”. Shedding the Carribbean feel of previous releases, the collective go straight for the funk on this cover of Minnie’s classic “Young, Willing & Able”. Featuring the beautiful voice of singer Andrée Belle and some funky bass work from Stuart Zender formerly of Jamiroquai, this version is reminiscent of the heyday of acid jazz (Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai etc) but yet still fresh for a new batch of listeners to enjoy. Check it out and cop.
