Howard Hewitt @ Jazz Cafe 7th Sept 2021

On this Wayback Wednesday here’s a Q&A I had with Howard Hewitt about 5 years back Fitzroy.... " ‘The Lover In You’ defined Shalamar as not just a dance group but the matrix one for me is ‘Sweeter As The Days Go By’ with that merry go round melody. Another record that reminds me of that is by a fellow Ohio native Steve Arrington’s ‘Mellow As A Cello’. What went through your mind when you first heard it as you can hear the emotion when you are singing it totally?" Howard...."I love that song, it was part of the commitment album of us moving from RCA to Elektra. We all at Solar owed them another album before the move was completed. When Leon played it to me I loved it with the “shooby do wah” and so sweet lyrics. It had a good feel and Doo Wop feel and just sung it the way I felt it. There was a lot of good stuff on that ‘Go For It’ album." Will HH be singing ’Sweeter As The Days Go By’? Why not get ya ticket and ‘Make that move’ “right now babeeeh” for the 7th Sept @ Jazz Cafe https://thejazzcafelondon.com/event/howard-hewett-shalamar-2/
