The master Paul Brown -- Romance and Groove Street 10/10

Shakin' to the unmistakable groove of his soulful acoustic guitar, multi-talented Paul Brown belts out his own style and delivers the goods on this album "Love You Found Me." Hit singles "Toast and Jam" incorporates the sultry sax talent of Jessy J. This track # 02 creates a perfect dance number.

Surprisingly the vocals on "Love You Found Me" display the broad range of the artist's vocal stylings. "End of the Day" evokes a Jackson Browne vibe and you can even hear Bruce Springsteenlike overtones in "The One You Lean On." Paul has integrated his cool, mellow sounds combined with an upbeat energy in all his melodies. The mood is soulful with a hint of southern love. This music is very approachable for the weekend, beach house, or ride home. "Let Me Love You" is a must for your romance collection. A personal favorite "Rights Back At Ya" features the sweet accents by Marc Antoine juxtaposed to Paul Brown's characteristic driving rhythms. This album will take you for a ride to the intersection of Romance and Groove Street where the lights are low and the mood is right. Bravo!

The Hits just keep on coming!

Paul Brown manages to get a rise out of my smooth jazz mania everytime he puts something new out. It all goes back to the first couple of his discs I'd play for friends...always the same reaction...WTH is that? I should have gotten a comish!
Sugar Fish is the most dominanat work for me, and is classic PB style, with echoes of Wes Coast Swing! I am only aware of his electric guitar style more than any acoustic, but cannot get enough of his use of vocalese and smooth struming.
It sems to me that the final track is with Al Jarreau, if my Blindfold Test skills are as sharp as they were 40 years ago!
I just hope that Mr. Borwn avoids geting too many guests and less of himself on future releases, which is why this is not rating a 5 star with me. Listen to Up Front and you'll know what I mean...he's one of the best!
