The Promise

The Promise (2003)



前作から実に6年ぶりにリリースされたこのアルバム。
随分と待たされた気が当時はしていたよ。
日本ではAvexよりボーナストラックを2曲追加されて発売されている。

EWF特有のホーンと美しいコーラスワークの見事な融合。
収録されている楽曲もバラエティーに富んでいてすご〜く楽しめる構成。
Never ”はEarth,Wind & Fireとしては初のラテンのリズムを取り入れたノリノリの夏にぴったりの曲!

甘くて優しいバラード”Hold Me” はこの年のBest Traditional R&B Vocal Performanceにノミネートされている。
(残念ながら受賞には至らなかったけど・・・)

そしてこのアルバムの一番の魅力は当時のEWFの若いメンバーがしっかりとフューチャーされているところ。

B Davod Whitworth, Robert BrookinsKrystal Johnson

そして更にFred WhiteRalph JohnsonEmotionsの名前がバックグラウンドボーカルの項目に見られるのもファンにはたまらないよね!
