‘Bewitching’ is the word used to describe “Cherish”, the new single from exquisite vocalist Karla Harris that lushly reimagines the Association’s 1960s megahit. Acclaimed producer/composer/keyboardist Trammell Starks creates a rich, contemporary version of the tune, combining its magnetic melody with delicious jazz sensibilities, a definitive groove and velvety instrumentation. Joining Harris and Starks are celebrated musicians Lil’ John Roberts (George Duke, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson), Sam Sims (Boney James, Dave Koz, Michael Jackson), Sam Skelton (Jeff Lorber, Elton John, London Symphony) and renowned session guitarist Chris Blackwell. Harris is an alluring new voice on the smooth-jazz scene whose music features an aural quality all its own, and “Cherish”, the first single from her forthcoming album Certain Elements is a breakout romantic slow jam perfect for the cool days of fall.
