Slide/Ride

Escort Records
The second release on Escort’s label, that dedicates itself to the evergreen sound of '80s soul and funk. Following the label debut that featured the one and only Fonda Rae, the NYC disco trio invite the talent of legendary composer, producer, flautist and (most notably) Gil Scott-Heron collaborator, Brian Jackson, to perform and lay a mesmerising flute melody over the rousing disco bump of ‘Ride’. Switching the mood, ‘Slide’ slips into classic boogie mode with a slow groove that nods to Slave, Yarbrough & Peoples, Rene & Angela etc.
