3 Cheers, a toast of Dom and a 15 minute standing ovation as the final entry into the expanded editions of Marvin's golden era is finally here in time for Thanksgiving 2012. Like millions of others, "What's Goin' On" felt like the soundtrack of my formative years. Coming right during the spring I graduated from high school, okay yes I'm near ancient, I declared it as my "Best Album of All Time"!!!! It wasn't necessary for Marvin to follow it up right away because I listened on a daily basis, never tiring of it.
But then, after dropping the single "You're the Man", Marvin made a complete left turn and expressed his musicality and jazz instrumentation with the soundtrack to a 70s movie that I never had any intention to of seeing, "Trouble Man". What I liked about the album immediately was the challenge it brought to my musicality. It was another opportunity to expand my musical knowledge. I had followed Santana's transformation into jazz at around the same time with...
Classic Jazz/R&B album that is great...This soundtrack is one of the greatest ever created. I truly enjoy Marvin Gaye and was unaware of this record. I was late in finding out about this album but have since made up time as it has not left my player since purchase. Very calming on my long drive home after work or great for background music for date/dinner. Highly recommend this album. I would give this 10 stars if possible.-----On a side note, I have heard the track 'T' Plays it Cool before as a mix and did not know it was Marvin. The song was called A Touch of Jazz by DJ Jazzy Jeff.
I knew Marvin Gaye--"What's Going On?" & "Sexual Healing". Probably like a lot of folks I picked this one up because it's mentioned in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Sam Wilson (The Falcon) tells Cap to get the soundtrack. Cap puts it on 'his list.' Well, I'm glad Steve Rogers did! Without that mention I wouldn't have picked up what is one of the jazziest, funkiest CD's I've heard in awhile. "Trouble Man" has become my go to CD for late Saturday night. Can you dig it? . . . I knew that you could.
