Jump to So Shy - Bill Wolfer - Wolf . Bill Wolfer was a hot young session musician who received an unexpected chance in to make his own record -- and made the most of it. Based on some demos on a cassette tape, Solar Records honcho Dick Griffey signed Wolfer to a record contract on his new Constellation Records label, and Wolfer put together a truly So Shy - Bill Wolfer - Wolf album in the vein of Quincy Jones' The Dude.
The album, Wolf, seemed an unlikely hit. The disc included 10 Wolfer compositions, 5 with vocals and 5 without, and skirted With Regret - The Cherry Orchard - The Start Of Our Affair line between pop, soul, funk and the as-yet-undefined smooth jazz.
Most surprising was the lineup of musicians on the disc. While Wolf was only a modest hit, it remained a sought-after album for 20 years until its release renamed Call Me: The Best of Bill Wolfer in late Wolfer went on to produce and perform with a number of acts, including Shalamar he produced "Dancing In The Sheets"Vanity and Dynasty. Wolfer later moved to New Age label Nouveau and recorded three successful instrumental albums. Wolfer then disappeared from sight for several years before reemerging in as a leading purveyor of traditional Cuban jazz through his new group, Mamborama.
Their 3 releases, especially Night of the Living Mambowere critically acclaimed and provided a great introduction to that genre. Soul Music Biographies, News and Reviews.
