Henry Turner Jr & Flavor
NOW..The latest and long-awaited album by Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor! The selections, written and recorded over the last few years, reflect the evolution of Henry's distinctive sound and songwriting...a rich and diverse collection that will satisfy loyal listeners, while attracting new audiences. From the Baton Rouge based musician's Top-40 roots, to the Crystal Band's R&B/Funk era, to the Bob Marley Reggae Tours, to his current Blues-oriented progression, NOW showcases his ability to capture authentically the full spectrum of the human experience.
As founder of the Baton Rouge Mardi Gras and Soul Food Festivals, Henry wrote and performs "I Love My Soul Food" and "I'm Going Down to the Mardi Gras", both fan favorites at these annual events. He further celebrates his hometown with the "Baton Rouge Theme Song", an increasingly popular tribute. He mixes it up with the bluesy confessionals "I'm Not That Kind of Man" and "1 (One) Wish", while "Irenkar", offers a mellow jazz instrumental. The album also features two songs from the recent documentary chronicling Henry's life and career, "Music Dreams...An American Story"- the heartfelt ballad "Long As I Live" and the regional football anthem, "That's My Saints". Enter a world of soulful variety and virtuosity...NOW!
