"LFB "In The Midnight Hour" review"

ACID JAZZ magazine, Italy - August 2007 Edition


(by Davide Carabini)

Sexy music with a lot of rhythm which seems more at home
in the latest club than in the bedroom. Strong yet sweet vibes
from the first album by Leo Frappier and his band, which we
present here in worldwide exclusive.

Leo Frappier's band is very unusual. The musicians are Ricc
Sandoval and Paul Brewer, together with a handful of vocalists
including Kathleen Antonio, star of the musical "Menopause,"
Troy Ziel, Steven Trier and Soul Sista Shakti. All of them
coordinated by a 5-star producer and remixer who has worked
with artists such as Rhianna, Nina Hagen, Sylvester, Evan Cowden
and Crystal Gayle, just to name a few of his credits.

LFB came out of nowhere in 2003 when Leo decided to compose
some tracks which blended R&B, lounge music and new jazz
sounds. His idea was well-received in San Francisco and the Bay
Area as well as amongst his peers in the music world. The first
to volunteer to collaborate was Jo-Carol Davidson, a brilliant
vocaslist, author, entertainer and social activist.
June 5 of that year, however, Davidson died, having recorded
only 2 tracks, "Everywoman" and "Body Electric." This was a
terrible blow for the band until the arrival of white soulman
Steven Marc Trier, an American version of George Michael,
which enabled the band to finish an EP named "In the Midnight
Hour" for release in June 2004.

Two years were then spent composing new songs and then Soul
Sista arrived with her provocative voice, fresh from working with
OM label along with two prestigious musicians on a multiformat
Soundtrack project which recalled 'club' rythms and moves with
Sexy undertones completing the picture.

The picture has been completed with the first official LFB album,
again entitled "In the Midnight Hour," which will be released
on November 1st 2007 but which will be available for download
from I-tunes three months earlier. We are offering you the remixed track of "Body Electric" on our sampler; it is a typical
example of their rhythm which, in this dancefloor version,
showcases all of Frappier's talent and his ability to create suave
and powerful riffs paired with vocals that are at once sexy and
breathy, sometimes conversational, sometimes open.

Our first album "IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR" is available for press releases, and the street date is November 2.

Digital downloads go live on August 4th on the iTunes Store. Enjoy and write a review, if you would dig the sounds and grooves



Founded in mid-2003, LFB came about from Leo Frappier deciding to write songs "from the heart" in a downtempo house/ nu-jazz/ lounge feel. With a great pool of talented singer friends falling in love with the tracks, the songs were born. That same year, we lost one of our earliest members, Jo-Carol Davidson who passed away suddenly, after only getting to record one song with LFB entitled "EVERYWOMAN."

But nevertheless, she had the opportunity to participate and co-write "EVERYWOMAN", and "WHEN THE GOING GETS TOO DEEP" and sing backing vocals on "BODY ELECTRIC."

In 2006 after working with OM Records, Soul Sista Shakti joined the group and adds her sexy mellifluous voice to the ensemble.

Leo Frappier is a producer and remixer, having created remixes for: pop sensation Rhianna, punk meistress Nina Hagen, disco legend Sylvester, Diva Kristine W., newcomer Evan Cowden and even country chanteuse Crystal Gayle.

LFB is about creating a love vibe through music. The music is romantic, rhythmic, and sexy. Some songs are "chill" and laidback, and some pulse with the beat and groove that can enhance any intimate moment from the lounge to the club to the bedroom. Their first album IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR is in manufacture with a street date of November 2, 2007
