A NEW POINT OF VIEW

Two time w.C. Handy award nominee tad robinson returns with a new band, nine new originals, two classic soul gems and A NEW POINT OF VIEW.

This collection of modern soul/blues has reverberations of past singers and yet is a forward leap for the music. Truly a hand-made project, A New Point of View was made the “old-school” way with tender loving care. Originals like “Long Way Home” give a nod to Issac Hayes, while Johnnie Taylor's “Ain't That Lovin' You (For More Reasons than One)” draws more inspiration from Dennis Brown's version than the original. Each song creates a balance between classic and modern style.

Horn and string arrangements by arranger Willie Henderson (Tyrone Davis, Chi-Lites), burnish the tracks with harmonic sophistication never sacrificing Robinson's vocals in the process.

The band's performance is a marvel of democracy; equal parts blues and soul coming together to create the canvas that Robinson is free to fill with color and personality.
