Lamont Dozier Jr. – “Hello It’s Me”
It’s not often that we get a music submission from a legendary songwriter. On “Hello It’s Me” from Lamont Dozier Jr. we not only get an exquisite performance from one third of the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team (but what I feel is) a tip of the hat from one great songwriter to the other on this classic composition from Todd Rundgren.
Lamont Dozier Jr. has brought forth here(to coin a phrase) an instantly vintage performance. Not vintage as in old, no my friends, vintage as in the top shelf. These are the new musical moments that we should look for and cherish – top shelf moments. How does one get to the top shelf? Hard work that is at the intersection of talent. Lamont Dozier’s career is the embodiment of the aforementioned tenet.
