Back in December, and ahead of the release of the CD ‘Caution’, the ultra smooth Andre Ward posted a statement of intent with the single ‘Marvin’s Medley’. Built round snippets of Gaye’s 1976 smash ‘I Want You To Want Me’ this was far from your usual revamp of Marvin Gaye staples and, with an arrangement that sizzled with an authentic Motown vibe, it was a track that united fans of classic and smooth jazz in a coming together of mutual appreciation.
Now, with ‘Caution’ already at #1 on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, the second single shows off a different side of Ward’s musical persona.
‘I Will Love You (The Wedding Song)’features Jamie Knight on vocals and is produced by Rahni Song who also features on keyboards. Check it out.
