Superbly produced originals and classics! Grab your partner!
PERFECT! John, your voice is unique - forget that nonsense of comparisons... there are none. The joy that emanates from your voice left me driving alone through the fall colors of Warner park with a huge grin. My body was swaying and I was in love with the mood filling my entire body. Your voice with Paula Jones on "Enchante'" - ahhh, simply exceptional!

Cheek and Ware lyrics and music are smashing AND superbly produced on this album! You cats play so I can hear all the instruments all the time. Song after song has music that flows through my entire body. The combinations of songs take me from a sweet happy mood to feeling soooo sexy. "I Just Want to be in Love" make me want to look beautiful, dance tirelessly and kiss deeply.

"Rhythm & Jive at Five" fills my mind with dancing feet and twirling couples. The two classics - "Alligator Meat" and "Every Day I have the Blues" were tight and so much fun.

AND then there is "Aprils' Here" and "Nous Sommes tous Bon Vivant" - both capture what southern women love and know about southern men... Oodles of romance and kisses the taste of cane sugar.

Thank you! Thank you! For music that speaks to my heart and lifts my spirit.
