Twennynine, featuring Lenny White

Twennynine featuring Lenny White

Back in '79, '80, '81--the hip thing was for a jazz cat to make a R&B/Soul album. Jazz drummer Lenny White's album, Best of Friends, pictured here is an overlooked jewel of the era. Lenny's in the white tie, I should add. The tune that got the radio play was the silly, but fun "Peanut Butter." But don't sleep on the title cut, a mellow cut with strings and strong vocals. You can go here to listen to cuts from the album.

WE have the same taste. I loved and had the LP "Just Like Dreamin'" ...

Thanks Lee!
