Spanky Wilson-I¿m Thankful-SOUL LEGEND-NEW CD

Spanky Wilson-I¿m Thankful

new CD


American soul legend Spanky Wilson makes her debut on Tru Thoughts with the help of Will Holland and The Quantic Soul Orchestra.

Since she burst onto the scene in the late 60s, Spanky Wilson has recorded with the likes of Marvin Gaye, Sammy Davis Jnr., Lalo Schifrin, Jimmy Smith and Willie Bobo.

Renowned as a soul singer beyond comparison on both sides of the Atlantic, she has consistently released quality music, always collaborating with some of the most talented and respected producers of the day.

True to form, Spanky Wilson teamed up with Will Holland of The Quantic Soul Orchestra to record ¿I¿m Thankful¿, a stunning collection of 21st Century jazz, funk, big band and soul music.

Will and Spanky first collaborated in 2005 on two tracks for the third Quantic album, ¿Mishaps Happening¿. Inspired by this positive experience, they began writing an album together.

Months of work culminated in a week-long recording session in Spanky¿s hometown of Los Angeles, California. Working closely with Todd Simon on the horn arrangements, Will drafted in some of the US funk-soul scene¿s finest session players to bring that raw, QSO sound to the proceedings ¿ creating an album that is as fitting on the dancefloor as it is in any enthusiast¿s record collection.

As for Spanky herself, she remains as inspirational now as she has always been. Versatile, emotional and honest in any musical style she turns her hand to, this collaboration with The Quantic Soul Orchestra is further evidence of her formidable talent.

In December 2006, ¿I¿m Thankful¿ was shortlisted for Album Of The Year in the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards

It¿s a marriage made in soulful heaven

DJ Magazine
Spanky Wilson: I'm Thankful
¿Holland¿s take on funk, rootsy and authentic but laced with breakbeat sensibilities, provides a glove-like fit for Wilson¿s Aretha-via-Lyn Collins style vocals¿
