One of the most influential and iconic voices of our time Gil Scott Heron is certainly up there within the pantheon of great American singer/songwriters. It's with obvious trepidation then that you approach any new material from the pen of such a legend. Is it going to live up to expectation? Will it try to emulate classic Heron? Or will it just sound like a weak and tepid modern interpretation? Thankfully, it's a well thought out exercise in forward-thinking classicism. Phew!
