Veteran strings arranger Larry Gold (aka Don Cello?he mastered the instrument by the age of eight) has had a career that other artists dream of, from backing the likes of Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr in the ’60s to being a member of MFSB, Gamble and Huff’s The Sound Of Philadelphia house band, followed by a stint writing for Sesame Street. Since the mid-’90s, Gold’s undergone a renaissance, founding his own studio to reinvent that classic Philly sound for the likes of Justin Timberlake and J-Lo. This love letter to Philly soul features a host of guest vocalists including fellow veteran Bunny Sigler, and a nod back to Gold’s gold disc, McFadden And Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now”, revisited here with a rap by Black Thought.
