ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SoulMusic Records in association with Platinum Garage Recordings is proud to present "Amazing Ride," the third solo album by Chubby Tavares (of the legendary hitmaking family Tavares). With award-winning music man Preston Glass at the helm for many of the tracks, Chubby's latest musically satisfying set showcases his distinctive vocals on a range of wonderful new material as well as refreshing cover of the Charlie Chaplin classic, "Smile," co-produced by top UK producer Nigel Lowis who also provided a new mix of "Can't Knock Me Down," the title track of Chubby's last CD. Other highlights include "Music Is Healing," a exciting duet with famed dance music diva Pattie Brooks; the infectious "Kid In A Candy Store"; the inspirational songs, "The Path Of Compassion" (co-written by Chubby) and "Still Blessed"; and the lyrically autobiographical title track.

I’m always ‘amazed’ when Chubby Tavares opens his mouth to sing; what happens next are always goosebump moments – what a gift he has! It is my pleasure to work on music with Chubby, because like me, music was always a part of his life from a very early age. His journey has truly been an “Amazing Ride” full of rollercoaster ‘highs and lows’, yet he IS “Still Blessed” to share his talents with new generations of fans. He has become “a brother from another mother” to me…..Together, along with all those who participated on this album project, we are proud to take you on this “Amazing Ride” with us! Thank you Chubby Tavares!!! - Preston Glass (Producer)

Special thanks from Chubby: I would like to dedicate “Still Blessed” to my friends and family who have recently passed away – Bartomeu Gomes, Mikala Toni McCane, Derrick Pollard Sr., Shanay, Ryan Dandrea, my great nephew Dwayne Borges, and my grandson Mateo Cruz RIP.

Thank you to the late great Michael Jackson for your rendition of “Smile” – like me, I know that song was a favorite of yours………. Chubby Tavares

Magnificent
Timeless and magnificent, splendid & full of love! This is what Chubby Tavares is meant to do. He has shown us through “Smile”, “Can’t Knock Me Down”, songs of never-ending faith, that as life happens to us, through our ups and downs, if we lose our faith, we lose our heart and soul! Those of us who’ve followed Chubby over the years are truly blessed to have this latest of his recent albums that restores our faith and gives meaning to paying it forward! Listening to Amazing Ride is like visiting a friend we’ve missed and understanding why we have that “soul” connection over the years. Music with a message for all ages!
