Michael Lington Back with New Album ‘Second Nature’ (WATCH/LISTEN)

EURweb Logo

*Multi-talented saxophonist, producer and composer Michael Lington‘s ninth solo project, “Second Nature,” in tribute to the roots of Memphis soul is set for release April 22, 2016.  The album reunites Lington with producer by Barry Eastmond and features  all originals with the exception of one cover, the chart-topping soul anthem, “Soul Finger.”

In preparing for this album, Lington immersed himself in the classic Memphis sessions and even journeyed to the STAX museum  While most of the album was recorded at the famed Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, he also recorded at the legendary Royal Studios in Memphis, which has churned out sessions for everyone from Al Green, Chuck Berry and Buddy Guy to Ike and Tina Turner, Solomon Burke, Otis Rush and Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland.

SECOND NATURE unites a who’s who list in music that transcends genre and musical boundaries, including GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and venerable bluesman Booker T. Jones and The Dap Kings, the celebrated soul/funk outfit most notably known for their hit-making collaborations with Sharon Jones and Amy Winehouse. Lington also enlists Hollywood Walk of Fame recipient, multi-Platinum and GRAMMY-winning guitarist Ray Parker Jr. and chart-topping vocalist Taylor Dane. Brian Culbertson fans will be delighted to hear the pianist surprisingly featured on trombone.
