Con Funk Shun’s FELTON PILATE is a busy man. Fresh from his recent work with Erin Stevensen and Eugene Cole, he’s now teamed up with JAY A. BLAKEY for a jaunty, old school soul romp, ‘Why Baby’.
We don’t know too much about Mr. Blakey but he possesses a charming, world-weary voice as he professes his innocence to claims from his lady that he’s playing the field. It is however the happy-go-lucky feel of the tune that carries the day here. Very catchy and out now!
