When it comes to music, there are times when you hear the opening beats of a song, and you just know that you will love a song. That was precisely how I felt in 1995 the first time I heard "Tell Me" by Groove Theory, head bobbing to those Bryce Wilson beats almost instinctively. And then there is Amel Larrieux's voice; enough said. I knew that I had to have the CD, and the eponymous titled album continues to be one of my all-time favorites. Listening to Groove Theory tracks just reminded me of how cool and smooth the group's sound was, and continues to be.
I was sad when I learned that there would only be the one Groove Theory album, but I definitely have enjoyed the solo work of Larrieux over the years. And I can hope that one day, Wilson and Larrieux might come together on stage again.
