Performer Notes
  • Like his other record from 1970, Today, Brook Benton's Home Style was also produced by Arif Mardin and recorded in Miami and New York. However, this album used the Dixie Flyers as the backing band and augmented them with the dream horn section of Joe Newman on trumpet, King Curtis on tenor sax, Pepper Adams on baritone, and Benny Powell on trombone. The Flyers give the record a more organic feel that the horns and strings take straight uptown, giving the record a unique sound. Benton's vocals are just as impressive and the song selection is mostly first-rate. Benton dips back into the Tony Joe White songbook for "Willie and Laura Mae Jones," "Aspen Colorado," and "For Lee Ann," hoping to strike gold again. He didn't, but the songs sure sound good. Elsewhere he covers Joe South's "Don't It Make You Wanta Go Home," turns Dylan's "Don't Think Twice It's All Right" into a funky chunk of advice, and rips his way through the Booker T.- and William Bell-penned Albert King classic "Born Under a Bad Sign." Maybe best of all is the self-composed "Let Me Fix It," a sassy duet between Benton and Cissy Houston (with an assist from the rest of the Sweet Inspirations, who provide vocals throughout) that sounds like a funky-as-dirt update of his classic jousts with Dinah Washington. [Home Style was paired up with Today for release by DBK Works in 2003.] ~ Tim Sendra
