SoulTracks Instant Classic: Tony Momrelle Wants To “Fly” (Live)

In 2013, the UK singer/songwriter and SoulTracks favorite Tony Momrelle released his EP Fly, a collection of 7 powerhouse R&B tracks, all of which are soulful and ear-pleasing. 

But the title track is especially a tour-de-force and provides proof positive that a virtuoso rhythm section can make an already great track shimmy and shake with even more excitement. The drummer and bassist on this recording truly propel Tony into flight, making the track an instant classic.

We feature below Tony and the band performing the song live last year at the Lugano Estival Jazz.  And if you think the studio recording is terrific, prepare yourself to be blown away by the musicianship exhibited here live!  Enjoy.
