With the right look, a functioning larynx and some creative engineering in place, practically anyone these days can have a 'hit'; but the litmus test of legitimacy comes from live performance, since the indelible moments that connect musicians to the masses simply cannot be faked. And while there’s nothing wrong with special-effects-laden, larger-than-life stage shows, it’s the rapport created by the organic synergy between the artists and audience that makes Dear Friends: An Evening With Foreign Exchange such a delight to experience.

Recorded on both audio and video from their invitation-only appearance at SoundPure Studios in Durham, NC, The Foreign Exchange---consisting of Dutch musician and producer, Nicolay, and Little Brother’s former front man, lead vocalist and co-collaborator, Phonte Coleman----offer up an acoustic blend of ten of their best-known hits, accompanied by the members of their touring outfit: vocalists Sy Smith and Jeanne Jolly, percussionist Tim Scott Jr., Zo! on piano, Chris Boerner on acoustic guitar and Kush El-Amin on acoustic bass. The sparsely-arranged songs are delivered with eloquence and enthusiasm: “Take Off The Blues,” stripped of its rhythmic foundation, becomes supple and soothing, and “Laughing At Your Plans” scales back on the urgency, but doesn’t lose focus, with its less-cluttered live take. Their Grammy-nominated slow-burner, “Daykeeper,” is playfully updated with a pronounced southern twang, and the unexpected hip-hop flavored twist at the end, which adds a syrupy cadence, finds immediate recognition with the crowd.
