ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Legato delivers a musical world, flush with intense, soulful vocals, catchy hooks, and hip-hop rhythms.

Legato’s innovative sound fuses meticulously arranged instrumentation by Producer Roland Apikelis, former dancer for PRINCE, with the savvy, soulful freestyle lyrics of San Francisco vocalist Genevieve Goings of Playhouse Disney's Choo Choo Soul, who has performed on the same stage as P. DIDDY and LES NUBIANS. For the past two years, Legato has performed at clubs all over the San Francisco Bay Area, such as Harry Denton’s Starlight Room and the legendary Elbo Room, as well as sharing the 2004 San Francisco Gay Pride Main Stage with Chaka Khan. Expanding their territory, they will be touring colleges throughout the West coast in 2005.

Legato’s self-titled debut album, released in February 2004 to a standing room-only Plush Room, is an inspired blend of old school, smooth soul coupled with an utterly modern R&B/neo-soul sound that is infectious and undeniably its own. Songs such as "Boo-Bop" and “Leave” have received recognition from industry experts for their bold, emotionally honest lyrics and smooth harmonies. Genevieve displays a vocal maturity far beyond her years and her self-penned lyrics tell the story of a young woman who truly understands love, relationships, music, and the power of her womanhood. “From the first word out of her mouth, you know this 24-year-old has the power to pull you into her world and amaze you with courage and honesty. There is a mysterious intrigue about her that leaves you breathless and hungry for more.” (David Mack, President, EMSI). Genevieve is now working with Disney on a children's television insterstitial entitled " Choo Choo Soul" - music for kids that won't drive parents crazy!

Genevieve Goings has strength for days. As the sole lyricist/vocalist for this pop influenced R&B duo, her words lock in perfectly with Roland Apikelis' flawlessly produced backing tracks and demand the respect she is due. The album officially kicks off with "Boo Bop," a bombastic 3 minute jam that intersperses poetic raps with an infectious hook, and the album takes off from there. "You know you can leave if you're not honestly feelin' me," Goings sings on "Leave," the funk driven track that follows. Her vocal(and personal) confidence continues to steal the show as she raps, scats, and belts out the remainder of the 13 tracks with an assuredness and vocal poise that she has clearly lived every note of.

relaxing and a great mood setter
I love this CD it's great for coming home after a long day and just relaxing with a glass of wine, it's also great for umm.. making love.. it has a great beat and tone and Genevieve has a great soothing voice ten thumbs up.

Hmmmm...
Beim ersten hören fällt einem die saubere Produktion der einzelnen Tracks auf und die Stimme von Legato ist grandios! Egal ob Smooth oder bei den kleinen Rap Sequenzen, einfach toll!
Eine Album so richtig für den täglichen chill out. Hmmmm...
