Classic Bee Gees’ cut gets the jazz treatment
The Bee Gees’ Saturday Night Fever classic – How Deep is your Love – has never sounded hipper or funkier than it does in the hands of veteran saxophonist Johnny James Dr J, who has hedged his bets by releasing three versions of the 70’s classic.
The first is a feisty smooth jazz delight featuring the late Chuck Loeb’s hypnotic, crackling guitar and the high stylin’ production energy of Jeff Lorber.
Next is a classic styled R&B jam with Darrell Tookes’ silky floating vocals, while the third (A W Remix) is a punchy hip-hop/dance floor classic in the making.
Dr J adds two originals that further showcase his formidable talents on his brand new collection, which is already hovering in top positions on UK and European music charts.
