iTunes Editors’ Notes

Hot from 2013’s Summer Horns collaboration with Dave Koz and others, Gerald Albright now returns to the solo spotlight. Literally; Albright provides not just alto saxophone but flute, electric bass, and vocals as well. An album with a classic Philly soul gloss to it, Slam Dunk tips off with the uptempo title cut, which has a midtempo groove and just the right amount of edginess in the production. Peabo Bryson stops by for a shimmering version of “Where Did We Go Wrong?,” which carries on the chemistry the two established on Bryson’s “Show and Tell.” There are also a few covers worth checking into, including Albright’s surprisingly subtle but burning version of James Brown’s “It's a Man's, Man's, Man’s World” and a percolating version of Cyndi Lauper's “True Colors.” Albright also pays tribute to George Duke on “The Duke,” honoring his mentor with one of the album's best songs. Strong on melody but with attention to groove and harmonic detail, this is up to Albright’s usual high standards.
