SoulNRnB's Great Producers SIX: Leon Ware

As promised, another delve into the crates for more great production, composing and arranging from a seventies Icon thats still working to this day.

Leon Ware was a prolific writer producer for Al Wilson, Syreeta, Jerry Butler back in the day, but he really hit the heights with his writing and production work on Marvin Gaye's seminal "I want you" LP.

Classic song writing and production followed, and Leon still works to this day as proved on his collaboration with Steve Spacek as shown on this mix.

If I was to say that this man has been in some way involved with the following songs, you may understand my gushing:

Minnie Ripperton - Inside My Love
Michael Wycoff - Looking Up To You
Leon Ware - Rockin you name but three.

This mix explores just a few of his tunes from the 70's, to the 80's, to the 90's (For Maxwell) to the present day.
