Stories to tell – Minnie Riperton

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , , on 21. November 2012 by Musik Department

puuh, wonderful & sad at the same time. The story of Minnie Riperton, the angels voice over five octaves

Starting solo.Than with the Rotary Connection pretty succesful.Again a break, to start a less successful solo career and finally dying much to much to much to young. Enjoying and suffering at the same time with this fantastic documentation

…… studio was John Lennon with Phil Spector. In studio nr.two was Minnie with Stevie Wonder and in the big studio was Quincy Jones……

different times

next one we really wanna boost. Not only, because of  the Berlin thing. The idea is smooth, the making very complex and we say  – Respect – to East Coast PR. – Enjoy !!
