1. Product Details

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. With a landmark 50th anniversary album 2018s Soul Side of Town still visible in their rearview mirror one would think Tower of Power the much-lauded creators of their own horn-based hybrid brand of East Bay soul/funk/R&B/rock would take a well-deserved breather. But that is not in the bands DNA nor that of its founder and ringmaster tenor saxophonist and bandleader Emilio Castillo. Now with Step Up the band forges on into the next decade of the 21st century reinvigorated with the addition of new talent most notably the phenomenal young lead vocalist Marcus Scott. Marcus replaced TOPs longtime lead singer Ray Greene who makes his final appearance with the band on Step Up. Also taking his bows on the new album is 30-year TOP veteran bassist Francis Rocco Prestia who is stepping back from life on the road and whose driving fingerstyle funk is ably replaced on tour by Marc Van Wageningen. From the bands debut up to Step Up the TOP sound remains true to Emilios original musical vision: reach inside the deep multidimensional well of what is broadly called soul music and bring together all its diverse components in a singular emotional sound.
