Rock, Pop, Singer songwriter | Label: Whatever It Takes Records - 74245-1Despite an initial push for her single "Gotta Get Up from Here" in late 2004, Atlantic Records declined to release Ellie Lawson's debut album, The Philosophy Tree. Shortly after being dropped by Atlantic, Lawson picked up the pieces and got herself an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' successful daytime talk show. Following that appearance, Barnes & Noble came to the rescue, arranging an exclusive release of the album through its retail stores, and in August 2005 Philosophy Tree finally appeared.
The new album from award-winning, Billboard Top 10 World Music Guitarist Laswson Rollins. The album inludes 12 new original songs that capture the urgency of the moment, the exhilaration of the speed of sound, and the poignancy of the remains of the day.
4CD Set, 32 page booklet. Digitally Remastered 24-Bit / 96 kHz. In 1950, after a year on tour with Dizzy Gillespies band, Yusef Lateef returned to Detroit, the city where he had grown up as a jazz musician. With his powerfully preaching tenor sax tone and fluent, driving style he established himself as an influential presence in the Motor City scene, forming his own quintet in 1955. He made his first recordings as a leader in 1957, a productive year for him, as this gripping 4-CD set reveals.
