Review: Seminal American jazz label Black Fire sees its renaissance continue into the new age thanks to a series of reissues and compilation made in collaboration with Strut. One of those is the first ever reissue of an essential lost classic from the Black Fire catalogue, Wayne Davis' powerful self- titled gospel & soul album from 1976. Soulman Davis brings an explosive sound of gospel and rare groove to his work with an album here good enough for Saturday night as it is Sunday morning with loved up numbers like "Dawn Of A New Day" and "Morning". Find your dancier soul tracks in "Strive On & Be Strong" to the virtuosic manners and piano sections of "Intermezzo/Bahjia Habiba". A true soul album from a voice of the times that still resonates now.
