about

Wily Bo Walker's track 'I Want To Know (NY Funk Mix)' released as a taster to the new album 'Moon Over Indigo' coming September 2015 and achieved global airplay as well as consideration for a Grammy in 2015.

The backing band on this track, and indeed most of the album, is Scandal (Patty Smyth’s band) featuring Keith Mack (Joe Cocker), Benjy King, Tom Welsch and Eran Asias.

Danny Flam’s own New York Brass feature on horns including the tenor saxophone of Ron Bertolet (Bobby Caldwell) and trumpet of Kenny Rampton (Wynton Marsalis/Mingus Big Band).

The track also features Cenovia Cummins' String Quartet (Keith Jarrett / Barbara Streisand) and the wonderful backing vocal arrangements of Kareña K.

I also have to make a special mention of Benjy King who played Piano and Hammond on this track (and a lot of the tracks on 'Moon Over Indigo'). A wonderfully talented musician who unfortunately died in an accident after these sessions. A real tragedy and I know he is sorely missed.

Said of this track:

"This has got legs! We have a freakin' hit right here!" B Noel Barr - Lunch at the Barr

lyrics

WELL IT SURE TURNED OUT LIKE SOME KIND OF SUMMER
WHAT WITH THE HEAT AND THE WIND AND THE RAIN
WE WERE LIVING IN THE DEEP SOUTH
A PASSION BURNING IN OUR VEINS
ONE NIGHT BABY SAYS SHE FEELS THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG HERE
SHE FEEL A TERROR LIKE HER HEART BEATING
DEEP INSIDE
AND THEN BABY SAID SHE WOULD
BABY SAYS SHE MIGHT
JUST TAKE A LITTLE DRIVE OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
I WANNA KNOW
I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
WHERE GOES MY BABY? MY BABY TONIGHT?

WHEN IT TURNED INTO THE COOL OF NOVEMBER
I KIND OF KNEW I’D NEVER SEE HER AGAIN
IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
WHEN YOU TURN OUT THE LIGHT
I SWEAR I HEARD HER
CALLING OUT MY NAME


TODAY I HEARD THEY'D FOUND HER CHEVY
BURIED HALFWAY DOWN IN THAT TAHOE MUD
IT WAS EMPTY INSIDE
LIKE MY BABY’S EYES
SHE TOOK TO DISAPPEAR OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
I WANNA KNOW
I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
WHERE GOES MY BABY? MY BABY TONIGHT?

AND I’VE BEEN DRIVING THROUGH THESE STREETS IN THE MOONLIGHT
TRYING TO FIND A REASON WHY
IT'LL TAKE A FOOL LIKE ME
NOT TO REALISE, REALISE…
I NEED MY BABY TONIGHT…
