ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Modern” – “Retro” – and “Funky” are 3 words that can best describe this new recording venture. A soulful, fresh and funky ride through 13 sparkling sides, bringing back as the title suggests, a mix of sophisticated funk, groove and soul- jazz productions.
Performed by keyboardist Mike Di Lorenzo, featuring the rich vocals of Atlantic Records recording artist Norman Durham, member of the funk group “Kleeer” whose hits included “Intimate Connection” and “California Love”, later covered by 2Pac and Dr. Dre. With a voice as smooth as silk, Mr. Durham’s warm and sophisticated phrasing is a welcome addition to the mix with 4 outstanding and classic cover tune performances.
On the heels of his successful debut CD release URBANIZED, keyboardist Mike Di Lorenzo gets loose from the opening track with electrifying performances including 9 original tracks and 4 cover arrangements that groove like the old days.
Tribute is given one of Mike’s favorite instrumental groups The Crusaders with a rendition of “Keep That Same Old Feeling”. Other standouts range from the funky title track to an infectious Latin take on Earth, Wind and Fire’s “Can’t Hide Love”, to the smooth interpretation of the Spinners’ classic “It’s A Shame”.
One listen to Fred Astaire’s old standard “One For My Baby” and you will be hooked as this is destined to transform into a new classic of today. Old school, new school, Mike’s unique sound on keys and productions, is helped out by the stellar musicianship of Vinnie Cutro on trumpet, Frank Elmo on sax and Willy Dalton on guitar… old school grooves with a modern touch…

SmoothJazz.com Review
New York based keyboardist Mike DiLorenzo has created an album that embraces what one critic aptly describes as “…the modern smoothness of today and the staples of the past like the flattering hints of Soul Jazz and CTI.” The results, to my ear, are nothing short of outstanding. BRING IT BACK, Mr. DiLorenzo’s sophomore release (following up on 2005’s “Urbanized”) combines nine stellar original instrumentals with four classic vocal covers from The Crusaders, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners and, yes, the Fred Astaire songbooks, all featuring the silky smooth voice of Norman Durham (member of the funk group “Kleeer”). This project does a fabulous job of integrating old school with new school, and the results speak impressively for themselves. You’ll definitely find BRING IT BACK to be one of your most enjoyable listens of the summer, and it’s an album you’ll unquestionably want to spend many a season with!
