One of America’s finest guitarists, Gordon Banks is most well known as Marvin Gaye’s tour bass player in the 70s and co-writer in the 80s (as well as becoming his brother-in-law). He has also played with New Birth, Edwin Hawkins & Gladys Knight & The Pips. Norfolk and Midnight love were Gordon’s post Marvin (Passed in 84) local bands, these two tracks were recorded between 86-88. You can hear Gordon’s writing skills coming through with a far more late 80s pop vibe, like late Marvin joints, which I love.
Personally it’s an honour to work with such a huge talent, Gordon’s bass playing on ‘Life is For Learning’ still give me goosebumps every time.
