JONATHAN BUTLER
LIVING MY DREAM

South African singer-songwriter-guitarist Jonathan Butler is tending to his herb garden at his suburban Los Angeles home. Growing tomatoes, bell peppers, rosemary, sage and thyme, his new pastime that he says gives him “a new sense of heaven,” is part of a mindset he has cultivated that he has dubbed “the season of me.” The ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2010 from the acclaimed guitarist and vocalist. So Strong is simply put- so strong! The first single (and title track) already made an impact at Urban Adult Contemporary and is a marvelous, hip slice of his powerful vocals over an infectious, driving rhythm. Smooth Jazz radio gets a taste too with the Benson-esque "Make Room for Me" and the inspirational "You Got to Believe Something" is a musical credo that won't let you down. So Strong- we hope you will agree- isn't just worth the wait, it's worth the weight in soul.

Review

Its jaunty fusion of R&B, gospel, jazz and Latin rhythms provides a fitting accompaniment to a theme that celebrates life. --Billboard

Jonathan and his electric guitar will take you down satisfying journey where head nodding, finger popping and foot tapping will be the theme of day when listening to the catchy beats of this delightful release titled "So Strong".
Jonathan, his lovely songbird daughters Jodie and Randy, along with a host of talented artist took their time and did this right.
Beautiful instrumentals "Avia/For My Baby" (named for Jonathan and Bareneses' granddaughter, Avia), "I Pay Respect" (A Trubute to Jonathans' homeland roots), Jazzy Scattin' "Good Times", and, "Make Room For Me" (Titled by Dave Koz) are sure to please and ease, along with Jonathans bluzie and relaxing version of "I Can See Clearly Now". The positively reassuring timeless favorites, "You Got To Believe In Something" and "Color Green" will energize your spirit. "Factual","I'm Right Here", "Feel So Good" and "Be Here With You" (A soon to be timeless classic with Angie Stone) are sure to be Jazz and R&B chart toppers along with the 3 versions of the universal catchy melody of "So strong" Very good job Jonathan!

Nothing really stands out on this CD. Butler's work on "Do you love me" has energy and life, you hear it and feel it. This project, while packed with vocals, is Johnathan for sure, but the lyrics seem sophomoric. I've never thought of this artist as a strong vocalist, "So Strong" dose nothing to dissuade my opinion. In fact, this CD would have been more interesting as an instrumental or collaboration, with other artists preforming most of the vocals (no chance of that). If you love Johnathan Butler, well, you'll be content with this CD and you'll buy it. For the rest of us, I would suggest investing in Norman Brown's new CD "Sending My Love". Butler, is always worth a look.

Although I have seen Jonathan Butler live several times, when I put this on to play I immediately wanted to see him live again. He's a few years older, but his distinctive voice and guitar skills are still at their prime and his charisma still oozes out. He is one of the best diamonds ever exported from South Africa.

In a word this latest release from J. Butler was splendid, the mix of R&B and jazz enveloped in African sensibility made this work a standout, in particular, the title tract, ' so strong,' 'make room for me,' 'factual,' and 'colour green.'

This is a great body of work, it is absolutely superb. The entire set was compiled with quality, heartfelt feelings and emotions. The entire set is worth anyone's time, but my favorite tracks are "Color Green" and "Feels So Good". Mr. Butler, you out did yourself! Bravo!
