All-Reviews.com Music Review: Eyes, Whispers. Rhythym, Sex...

Artist: Gregory Abbott
Genre: R&B, Soul
Release Date: May 2000


Review by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
3½ stars out of 4

With the soulful funkiness of Al Green and the smoothness of Al Giroux, Gregory Abbott takes you down a street called desire on "Eyes, Whispers, Rhythm, Sex…" Abbott finds his way through 15 tunes full of the warmth of pop music and the Caribbean sun to the sultriness and mysteries of love and romance with funky and soulful expressiveness. The elemental forces that drive him are his heritage, life experience, and craftiness in arranging a song with the right words backed by stellar musicianship.

"Rhythm Ryhme" is the best example of several excellent tracks of infectious grooves that Abbott lays down with his top-flight band. Not only is he a talented vocalist…he plays guitar, keyboards, and does the arranging, producing, and sequencing on the album.

His voice is so strong it serves as another powerful instrument. That kind of across the board talent is hard to ignore. If you do not get into some kind of groove listening to this music, I suggest you check for a pulse.

This is a rock steady group of tunes with consistency from beginning to end. This CD is both relaxing and inviting, how could you pass on feeling that good?
