Leon Ware

A music maker for four decades, Leon's list of impressive credits includes classic recordings by Quincy Jones, Minnie Riperton, Michael Jackson, Maxwell, Average White Band and of course, the late Marvin Gaye (whose Ware-written and produced “I Want You” LP remains a seminal Motown album). The hypnotically evocative “Loceans” expresses a romantic love and lust for life. In the tradition of his prior recordings and work with others, songs on the new album like “Just Take Your Time,” “Hold Tonight” and “Smoovin'” are love-filled odes, a heady mix of fantasy and reality. The 12-track collection of new Ware-produced material will be in stores on August 12, 2008.
