ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"You can hear a lifetime of experience and soul in the way Milan digs into a phrase...evokes both the juke-joint and the pulpit." - Matt Wake, al.com

R&B singer and percussionist Ivy Joe Milan just turned 64 and has released his first vocal album, 'Been Down Low', having previously released an album, 2000's 'Global Healing', spotlighting his outstanding percussion capabilities. If you're a fan of Ivy Joe's conga playing, then 'Been Down Low' will not disappoint, but he also unleashes the full range of his vocal talents, from blues to soul to funk to jazz. The CD features Ivy Joe's stellar songwriting, from "America!", written during the Viet Nam War era, to the title track, written in 2013. The songs pull the listener into Mr. Milan's way of finding the balance between taking care of business, having fun, developing love, pursuing happiness and having genuine concern for family, friends and the world around. The album has musical variety while remaining cohesive, firmly under the umbrella of southern soul. If you like songs that make you think or if you just want to get up and dance, then 'Been Down Low' is for you!
