Overview

As Promised

… AS PROMISED is old school and proud of it. Tapping into the CTI sound of the 1970s, and drawing inspiration from such Stevie Wonder gems as INNER VISIONS and SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE, keyboardist Alex Bugnon indulges in a smooth funk atmosphere complete with electric pianos, in-your-face bass lines, long unheard synth tones, and foxy-sounding vocalists whispering the words of song titles and choruses. It's a warm sound guaranteed to put you in a mellow frame of mind, even if you have no firsthand memories of the era that Bugnon is evoking. … AS PROMISED is enlivened by contemporary artists including saxophonist Branford Marsalis, and Lalah Hathaway who saturates "Won't Be a Fool" with her soulful vocals. Bugnon also adds a classy sheen by giving nod towards the jazz tradition with his arrangement of the John Coltrane classic "Naima."
