(Leon Ware – What’s Your World)

Quality piece of Soul from long time musicologist, arranger, singer and songwriter extraordanaire who’s career stretches back to the late 1950’s. First brought to themusicologist’s attention in 1982 as the Cat responsible for the Soul&Boogie / ‘Jazz-Funk’ classic ‘That’s Why I Came To California’. A BIG tune with London’s hipsters at the time of it’s release. Mr Ware is still going strong and celebrates HALF A CENTURY in what must be one of the most cut throat, back stabbing industrys out there. Today’s slice is borrowed from his excellent debut album released on United Artists in 1972.

  1. a glorious example of how music allows us to
    share each others worlds if only for the duration
    of the song!
