Lamont Dozier and Jo Harman
REACH OUT (I’ll BE THERE)
One of the joys of being a Roots Music fan is getting to see and hear the writers of world famous songs, singing their own words; and here we have a new taster of an ‘UNPLUGGED’ album by the legendary Lamont Dozier.
Duetting with RMHQ favourite Jo Harman on the Four Tops Classic REACH OUT (I’ll BE THERE)and the result is spellbinding; leaving me salivating at the prospect of not just a whole album in the same style but a UK tour too.
“Lamont’s album, ‘Reimagination’, is an acoustic re-interpretation of some of Lamont Dozier’s most famed compositions, set to be released in early Spring. The record, which includes cameo appearances from many industry notables such as Gregory Porter, Sir Cliff Richard, Graham Nash, Todd Rundgren, Rumer and more, is followed, in June, by a first ever solo UK tour for this legendary figure from the world of Motown. The tour will be an evening of unplugged acoustic backing to Lamont’s own versions of these iconic songs with music direction by bandleader/producer Fred Mollin. Lamont will be telling the stories behind these classic songs. Jo Harman will be a featured addition to the performances.”
