Maybe it’s something in the Baltic air. Whatever the explanation, there’s no denying that a remarkable group of musicians based in and around Hamburg, Germany has spent an extraordinary amount time on the US charts in recent years. First there was Dancing Fantasy, whose Worldwide, California Grooves and Moonlight Reflections were all Stateside hits. Then there was Blue Knights, who made waves of their own with Blue Night, Red Night and most recently Tropical Night. And then came Colors in Motion, who burst on the scene last year with Gentle Journey, their debut release. Like their predecessors, Colors in Motion struck a responsive chord among grown-ups in the American audience. Romantic, laidback, but always gently swinging, their unique style seemed to provide a relaxed counterpoint to modern life. Now they continue their sotto voce assault on the American music scene with Secrets, and we think we’ve discovered the secret of their success. His name is Curtis McLaw, and he is the gifted common denominator in all of the above. Guitarist, keyboard wizard and all-round magician in the recording studio, McLaw is one-half of Dancing Fantasy (with Chris Williams), one-half Blue Knights (with Jay Heye) and one-half of Colors in Motion. His partner in this case is Peter Sefkow, pianist, drummer, co-writer, co-producer and general soulmate in the enterprise called Colors in Motion. They’re joined on this occasion by the wonderful, British-born guitarist Bill Joseph Flynn, a veteran of several Dancing Fantasy/Blue Knights excursions and a musician of uncommon sensitivity. He does all the guitar work on Secrets, except the title track, where he is ably replaced by Hanz Marathon. The sax work throughout is by Mr. P.T., another longtime McLaw collaborator. So settle back and be soothed by some of the smoothest sounds in contemporary music. Secrets by Colors in Motion—a great way to end any day. # # # Maybe it’s something in the Baltic air.
