Jon Lucien: Listen Love

Jon Lucien (January 8, 1942 – August 18, 2007) was a vocalist, songwriter, and musician from the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 1974 he released Mind's Eye on RCA Records and it contains my favorite song by him titled "Listen Love", a funky, yet soul filled uptempo tune with cultural elements. Other than Lucien's outstanding performance on several instruments and vocals, there was an impressive line-up of talented musicians who took part of the project. Most notably, Dave Grusin on piano and percussion, who also conducted the orchestra, and Ralph McDonald on percussion as well.
