2015 album from the veteran vocalist, nicknamed “The Prince of Sophisticated Soul.” Chocolate Drops is Will Downing’s heart-shaped music sampler for the many fans that have followed his incredible 27 year career. Like any good sampler, it’s a pleasing mix of the things you love and expect along with a few tasty surprises. What should be correctly expected is the classy high-quality vocals, songwriting and production that has been increasingly handled by Downing himself over the last decade. The surprises come in the form of some bold and daring interpretative/remake choices. Will Downing loves to re-imagine songs made famous by female vocalists and put a male point of view of them. This time he chose one of the biggest hits by arguably the most iconic female voice of this generation… The late great Whitney Houston’s “Saving All My Love For You”. It is a fitting tribute to the fallen songbird.
