Arturo,
  I know it's a stretch, but Mr. Benson from the Four Tops did co-write
"What's Going On."  I too was a huge fan of their post-Motown stuff with
Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter writing and producing.

This week's sponsor:  FRANK DERRICK

To anyone who really listens, it will become immediately apparent that Frank
Derrick's 'The Beat Goes On' (Jazzed Media) is an extremely well conceived,
arranged, and brilliantly performed CD, marked by an interesting set of
compositions that merit very close attention.  It serves as an excellent
showcase for Derrick's writing and arranging skills along with his
incredible musicianship. The band never stops swinging. Never. The solos are
flawlessly paced, and delivered without a hint of waste.  A spirited and
inventive big band and quintet that simply doesn't get much better.

Any suggestions on jazz or blues versions of the Four Tops songbook? Unlike
when Norman Whitfield died and I was able to find many appropiate versions
of his songs, I can't find any of the 4 Tops yet there must be some. AMG has
become increasingly difficult to use because of their frustrating time out
errors which have become so prevalent

Would live to get a jazzy version of Are You Man Enough? theme from Shaft
Goes to Africa, Catfish(makes my Nature Rise) or Still Water(Love),  their
post-Motown material which I favor

Arturo
