Praise Poems - A journey into deep, soulful jazz & funk from the 1970s

Who other than the south German label named Tramp coul be behind a title like this one? There is probably no one who could collect those tunes better than the Tramp crew.

The name of the band on the first track says a lot about this compilation: Warmth. There might be  still some uptempo tracks on this one (and some of them like Bobby Stroup's "Wait For Me" are simply priceless) but the main focus remains on soulful tracks with warm sounds and soothing vibes. And there is one thing you will surely find in every song - a nice and steady groove  You will also discover instrumental tunes, jams and melancholic moods on this release. On tracks like "Alone Again" or "Carefree" you might sometime wonder if the singer is actually hitting his notes correctly - even if the answer might be a no, somehow those tracks grow easily to be one of the favourites through their original character.
