The latest offering from the Sophisticado family lets you feel the tropical breeze of the Atlantic ocean as Vick Lavender presents a jaw-dropping remake of the memorable Teena Marie classic "Portuguese love" (taken from her 1981 album "It must be magic"). Two equally incredible versions to choose from, both masterly orchestrated, featuring the keyboard wizardry of Mike Logan Sr, bass by Lamar Jones and drum programming by Vick Lavender. In other words, a timeless masterpiece oozing with Vick Lavender's beloved vintage soul/jazz/funk infused sound that is by no means to be missed.
