TAMIKO JONES - READ ME RIGHT


This song just flat out COOKS, in a very sexy, slow burning style.

Tamiko Jones started her career in the early 60's singing jazz while still a teenager (many of her early records were billed simply as Timiko, then eventually Tamiko). Her career allowed her to work with artists such as Herbie Mann and Solomon Burke (who she produced).

By the time this record was cut, the jazz was gone (other than remnants in her excellent vocal phrasing and pitch) and replaced by some seriously funky soul. Eventually a few years later she scored a big disco hit "Can't Live without Your Love".

But THIS one, in my opinion, is her greatest cut.

from 1975...
