“It’s Gonna Be Me” was a bonus track from the Young Americans album. It’s very deep. Very naked. This mix was really just piano, bass and drums. Then strings. Then background vocals. Listen to the wonderful background vocals led by the great Luther Vandross. Who knew where his amazing career would end up going.

I played a gospel type piano style which was a good discipline for me as I normally play a lot more notes! I hadn’t heard this one since 1974. Wow. David is beyond stellar. What a voice. And David Sanborn on alto sax at the end. I think we all channeled Marvin Gaye. Maybe it was David’s trip to the Apollo Theater in Harlem!
