Lakecia Benjamin & SoulSquad

Charismatic and dynamic saxophonist/bandleader Lakecia Benjamin, who has played with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots and Macy Gray, takes center stage in her own right with the release of her unconventional soul/funk album, RETOX, on Motéma Music.While she’s made quite an impact with her impressive sax work on stage and on record, Benjamin opted for a slightly different take on RETOX, allowing her talents as a composer and producer to share the spotlight with her funky sax struts. In fact, several of the CD’s 12 tracks don't even feature sax. "This album is really a fruition of years of songwriting as much as it is a showcase for my sax playing and horn arrangements," said Benjamin. On songs like "My Love" and "Share" she’s chosen to let the vocals carry the song.
