Smooth & Turrell
Smoove & Turrell - Mount Pleasant
When it comes to the world of Northern Soul, there is no finer band than Smoove and Turrell. Over the years they have developed a reputation of bringing fun times with their music with iconic hits such as “Beggarman” and “Hard Work” being constant crowd pleasers during their live sets. Their other side brings a slower tempo to offer some soulful moments which “Gabriel” and “Glass” highlights.
The guys return with their new album Mount Pleasant, an optimistic look at a pessimistic time. It is a nostalgic look at a time and area in which Smoove and John Turrell grew up. They say “everyone seems to know a different Mount Pleasant — with a universal theme being that some live up to their names and some do not.” This collection of songs was put together with the help of Mike Porter (keyboard), Lloyd Wright (guitar), Andy Champion (bass) and, Oscar Cassidy (drums).
