Never My Love
"Never My Love", nineteen-year-old saxophone up and comer Shannon Kennedy's third album, is a fresh, youthful take on some 70s pop classics mixed in with some of Kennedy's originals.
In the words of national jazz author Jonathan Widran, "[Peter] White’s always-recognizable acoustic guitar spruces up the sweet, soprano driven reading of the title track, but Shannon’s virtuosity as both producer and musician is the driving force. The best of the originals, "All It Takes" is slamming retro funk fun, and nicely balances the softer touches of "Fire And Rain" (given a bluesy treatment here with the help of Drew Simpson’s guitar), the soothing title track and two beautiful Bread ballads "If" and "Make It With You." She also cleverly brings out the whimsy via the flute on Hall & Oates’ "I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do).
