Back in stock! Tamiko Jones - born Barbara Tamiko Ferguson in 1945 in Kyle, West Virginia - debuted in 1967 on Atlantic with flautist and mentor Herbie Mann on the soul-jazz-bossa flavored 'A Mann & A Woman'. Her solo career take off in 1968 with the rare groove inflected I-ll Be Anything For You, released on A&M/CTI and produced by label owner Creed Taylor. Recorded and engineered by master Rudy Van Gelder at his own Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, the album is such a lovely combination of soul-funk jams and r&b ballads with craft strings arrangements by Artie Butler and Don Sebesky. Featuring a who's who line-up of classy session men - Bernard Purdie on drums and Eric Gale on guitar just to name a few - I'll Be Anything For You is namely one the best soul-pop crossover ever.
