You know what you've got to do


THE four tracks that make up Jonathan Jeremiah's toe-dipping EP What's A Guy Got To Do? are a labour of love.
For the singer, who is possessed with a crooner of a voice straight out of the 1970s, has done his compositions justice by not only enlisting The Heritage Orchestra to back him up, he's also persuaded The Roots' drummer Questlove, ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, and former James Brown cohorts including saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley and the JBs to help out.
With a line-up like that, you can bet the result is as polished and as epic as soul comes.
A full album, seven years in the pipeline, is anticipated soon from Jeremiah - if it continues this EP's form it'll be an instant classic.
