Hang onto your leftover Memorial Day hats, y'all - you're about to take a ride to Memphis! That's what "Soul Appeal" IS: the latest project from Michael Lington that takes him back to why he fell in love with the saxophone :)
Back in Copenhagen, Denmark, life was a serene routine. Michael was the grandson of the revered band leader, Otto Lington, an early champion of Jazz in that country. Learning his instrument early, he became a member of the esteemed Tivoli Boys Guard - that association earned him an education which culminated in two ways: college and the means to operate a recording studio while he toured in Europe.
Michael landed in Los Angeles in 1990, where he found work with Bobby Caldwell. His first CD, self-titled, dropped in our laps in 1997. Seven albums in total, this new one finds him completely at home - and we don't mean Denmark! Michael always loved what he heard of that beloved R & B sound from the 60's and 70's: King Curtis, Jr. Walker, and Wilson Pickett. He wanted to pay homage to that fire in his belly that persuaded him to keep playing - so, "Soul Appeal" was created. Our guest had help to get his message across - but the truth is that he could have done it ALL himself! R & B/Pop Producer, Barry Eastmond, got a chance to work with Michael - as did Ray Bardani, who engineered for Luther Vandross. In the studio while the music was being created: Kenny Lattimore, Ryan Shaw, Lenny Castro, Ray Parker Jr. and Paul Jackson Jr.
Steve Perry - the legendary Journey front man - came by because he was friends with Eastmond. What he heard during the sessions blew him away. And he told Michael how he felt: inspired! Some of us just saw Steve in concert in the past 24 hours and he wasn't lying :)
Michael Lington joins us on 5/27/2014.

How can Jamaica recover from the FX of Edward Seaga's damaging puppet leadership and restore Michael Manley's? What do you think of this article __. A lot of us don't know why what is talked about in the news is happening today. As always, the press gives a shallow snapshot and does not go in depth so we can get a clear view of what is happening in Jamaica. Here is a profile of Manley and Seaga, two Jamaican prime ministers and how the U.S. installed the White supremacist Seaga as a puppet Avatar in Jamaica. Seaga, a notorious CIA agent who sold Jamaica to servitude of US interest was given a franchise by the CIA. As his reward, the chief Carribean CIA agent, Edward Seaga was given a free hand in ensuring his perpetual dominance over Jamaican politics in macrocosm and Tivoli gardens in microcosm. Seaga then built up Jim Brown and his Shower Posse, into the most feared gang on the Island of Jamaica. Jim Brown and Shower Posse took over the Habour Fronts of Kingston, and controlled the ingress and egress of all drugs and general shipment into the Island. With that assured source of fund, Jim Brown expanded into other businesses, bought land, and commercial properties. His gang was armed with the best, biggest and the most sophisticated weapons. His name was feared throughout the Island. _ from Yahoo question
