This Precious Life

Listeners are reminded of Minnie Ripperton, Jill Scott, Ricky Lee Jones, Gretchen Parlato. The soundscape is the creation of Cord Heineking. There is a neo jazz flavor, multi-layering of bass grooves, drum beats,guitar solos and vocal harmonies which make for quite listen. To catch it ALL listen with high quality headphones on.
