Peabo Bryson beamed when talking last week about what could be a hall of fame of ladies with all the duets he’s been honored to share. His grin and gratitude carried over the phone.
Headlining the 26th annual Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Art, Bryson will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday at The Reserve Golf Club of Pawleys Island. More details are in the column nearby full of major events for the first half of this month, the busiest season of all for festivals (See the full list at www.myrtlebeachonline.com).
Bryson, a Greenville native who recounts at peabobryson.net family time nearby in Mauldin, summed up his exaltation from all the duets as “one of those things that happened.”
“You don’t plan for it,” he said, happy to share memories cherished from each partnership in the studio. “The challenge is to be all you can be, and that’s what the magic of a duet really honestly and truly is, and falling in love a little bit with each lady.”
▪ The late Natalie Cole, on “We’re the Best of Friends” album, from 1979 – “She was the first. You could never look into Natalie’s eyes and not be in love with her a little bit and listen to her voice.”
▪ The late Minnie Riperton, with his voice added to “Here We Go,” on her sixth and final album, released posthumously in 1980 – “I have gratitude that I was able to sing anything musically with someone that incredibly talented, and to know that it was her last project, and she knew it was going to be her last project ... ”
▪ Roberta Flack, for the whole “Born to Love” album, from 1983 – “I learned how to do a duet, specifically from her, because she has an inherent talent to integrate music with someone by playing to strengths and weaknesses equally, so you learn ... how you fall in your place naturally. ... She challenges you, but not in a competition.”
▪ Melissa Manchester, on “Lovers After All,” from her “For the Working Girl” album in 1980 – “This was a total accident. ... She was in town, recording a project, and her manager said she was sitting at a piano with a song she would not record, but was thinking about it, but said she would not do it, because when she co-wrote it as a duet, she said, ‘I had Peabo Bryson in mind.’ Her manager got in touch with mine, who spoke for me, saying, ‘He’d love to do it.’ I said, ‘Absolutely. Where is she? Where do you want me?’ She was working with (Arista Records’ founder) Clive Davis, at the time, and he didn’t know it was on the project.”
▪ Celine Dion, on Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” from the movie soundtrack in 1991 – I had agreed to do a duet with her even before there was a song – written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. ... I didn’t meet her until we saw each other in the recording studio. ... She and I were looking at each other, through a glass partition, and she starts singing and looks at me. Then I started singing, and she smiles a little bit. ... We went back and forth ... . That’s how our friendship started. She is such a talented and lovely human being.”
▪ Regina Belle, on Disney’s “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme),” from movie soundtrack in 1992, also “I Can’t Imagine,” from his “Can You Stop the Rain?” CD – “Her strength is, if the project’s difficult, it’s very simple for her, and it helps her approach things in that way. ... ‘A Whole New World’ was a complicated duet. ... It’s all about individual interpretation, and whatever you interpret collectively. ... As a recording artist, you hope to record a song that means the world to you, meaningful in ways that are forever endearing. That song represents every hope and promise you could ever have.”
▪ Sandi Patty, on “It’s Christmas” Hallmark CD from 1996 – “She could sing her way from this planet to the galaxies and back. ... Working with her was one of the highlights of my career, and to get a chance to do something like that, and with the London Symphony Orchestra, you have to love that!”
▪ Kenny “G” Gorelick, saxophonist, on “By the Time This Night Is Over,” from Kenny G’s “Breathless” CD in 1992 – “He doesn’t sing, and he wanted to give some variety to his loyal fans (as heard with Lenny Williams on “Don’t Make Me Wait for Love” and Smokey Robinson “We’ve Saved the Best for Last”). I was on his hit list. We ran into each other at an awards show, and he, Clive Davis and I had a long chat about that project.”
Bryson has seized the charts with solo numbers, too, including “Let the Feeling Flow,” “If Ever You’re in My Arms Again” and “Can You Stop the Rain?”
“Any week now,” he said, look for his new CD, with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, a project he calls “competitive .... exactly where I should be now” at age 65, with this view of, and care for, his voice: “There’s no such thing as rusting.”
An avid golfer who said he plans to bring his clubs on this trip to the Grand Strand, he still cannot believe the distance two hits from a quarter-century ago took.
“To think I would be a part of the two songs that are the greatest Disney sellers of all time,” Bryson said, “you couldn’t have scripted that any better.”
With music that “lives forever, for new generations,” Bryson said he also loves to welcome children in audiences on stage to sing a few notes with him on those Disney classics.
“One hundred percent of the time,” he said, ready to present the microphone, “they always deliver.”
