Most tunes are written by Michael Broening, who also produced
great parts of the album and plays keyboards, piano, drum
programming and bass. Some of the tunes are produced by Matt
Godina who performs keyboards, bass & drum programming and
guitars. Additional musicians on selected tracks are Freddie Fox
(rhythm guitars), Mel Brown (bass), Lin Rountree and Cindy Bradley
(trumpet), Kendall Lee Gilder (guitar), and Anthony Saunders
(vocals). Lebron performs soprano, alto and tenor saxophones.
The album starts with the grooving Issa Party that
combines the stomping rhythm guitar sound of Freddie Fox with the
tight horns of saxophonist Lebron and trumpet player Lin Rountree.
On Feels like '84 Lebron performs in lead position on his
alto saxophone adding some horns in overdubbing mode, while
Kendall Lee Gilder lets his guitar sing.
Say You Will are the affirmative words that often open a
new stage in life. Embedded in a flowing rhythm complex, Lebron
builds his enchanting melody. Lebron is an excellent harmonizer,
as he demonstrates with great expressiveness on The Late Hour.
The balladic approach is Lebron's great strength as with the piece
No Need for Words that speaks for an expressive tonal
power. Cindy Bradley's muted trumpet is the icing on the cake.
Let Me Count the Ways is featuring Kansas City's singer
Anthony Saunders who also played a decisive role in the
arrangement of this R&B song.
The title song is a haunting eclectic tune with an impressive flow
and a blowing vibe, evidently one of the best products of Lebron's
collaboration with producer and music artist Michael Broening.
Green Light comes again with the contagiously stomping
rhythm, which rules the Billboard chart of smooth jazz.
Sooner Than Later was written by Aubrey Graham, Noah
Shebib, and Dalton Tennant and originally performed by Canadian
rapper Drake on his mixtape So Far Gone (2009). This
rendition is spot on presentation and arrangement by Matt Godina.
It Feels Different follows the dream concept with
multiple layers that assemble like mosaic stones to an organic
cloud of harmony.
Lebron's new album Undeniable scores points in the land
of lovely harmonies illuminating the creative center of similar
musicians like Kenny G. However Lebron doesn't just offer equal
alternatives but his own personal melodic vision.
