Release Info: Kellee Patterson - I\'m Gonna Love You Just A Little More, Baby / Mister Magic 2010 (Jazzman)
Label : Jazzman
As covers go Kellee Patterson’s versions of the Barry White-penned classic and the theme made famous by Grover Washington Jr don’t fall far short of spectacular! Recorded back in sunny ’76, this is sublime femme soul with impeccable production, a classy double-sider that cannot fail to please!
Back in the ‘70s, when Kellee wasn’t winning beauty contests, she was winning singing competitions. The talented lady won a contract to record an LP for the esteemed Black Jazz label, before turning her hand to a more soulful album venture for Shady Brook. The single taken from the album included an abridged version of Barry White’s ‘Im Gonna Love You Just a Little Bit More, Baby’, but here for the first time is the FULL LENGTH version, released here in its entirety as it was always meant to be heard. Backed on the flip with a stunning vocal rendition of ‘Mr Magic’, the tune that catapulted Grover Washington Jr into the big time, what we have here is a soulful seven that’s too good to ignore. DJs watch out for immediate dancefloor reaction, whichever side you decide to play!By jazzman.
