The Decoders: Walk On By

Thank goodness music never has an expiration date. I came across this clever remake of Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By" by The Decoders when it dropped a few months back, but somehow dropped the ball on posting. The feel on this particular rendition is a Isaac Hayes meets Bob Marley & The Wailers, blending soul laced funk with a heavy "steppers" rhythm. Let's not forget the fabulous vocals of singer-songwriter Noelle Scaggs, who was the front-woman for The Rebirth, now on the vocal front end with Michael Fitzpatrick for Fitz & The Tantrums. Scaggs also does background vocals and the vocal arrangements for this tune.
