Ingrid Chavez ‎– A Flutter And Some Words
The First Darshan (Song For Ameera) by Ingrid Chavez

From A Flutter And Some Words released on Ten Windows Records in 2010.

Mexican-American poet and vocalist Ingrid Chavez, born in 1965, was a Prince protégé from 1987 to 1991, and was married to David Sylvian from 1992 to 2005.

Her debut album was initially intended to just set her spoken-word poetry to atmospheric music supplied by Prince, but when Warner Brothers pushed for the album to have sung vocals, Prince abandoned the project, so half of the album ended up as intended, and the remainder consisted of pop songs co-produced by Ingrid with Prince’s studio hands Michael Koppelman and Levi Seacer Jr.

Chavez also wrote the bulk of Madonna’s hit “Justify My Love”, and received a large out-of-court settlement for not being credited on that single’s initial release. In later years, Chavez focused on parenthood and photography, and occasionally contributed vocals to various David Sylvian releases.

Time Is Passing by Sun

The orange vinyled album Sun Power was released in 1977 on Capitol Records.

American funk group from Dayton, Ohio, led by Byron Byrd.

Sun was a brainstorm of Byron Byrd, a young Ohioan given to stargazing and eventual pursuits of Aerospace engineering and research science, developing the use of wireless microphones and guitars for the stage.

But music began for him as a hobby. Byron’s first bands were Over Night Low and the Ohio Majestics, which gigged around the area and as support for acts like The O’Jays and The Spinners. The horn section even cut a session for James Brown at King Studios for VP Henry Glover. Members of this band included James “Diamond” Williams, Marvin “Merv” Pierce and Clarence “Chet” Willis, all of whom went on to The Ohio Players.

It was in 1974 that Over Night Low, while opening for Mandrill at the Ohio Theatre in Columbus caught the attention of record producer Beau Ray Fleming, who’d worked with Mandrill, Jon Lucien and Zulema up to this point. He heard them on stage and came from the dressing room to peep the scorching band – up close. At the after party, Beau was doubly surprised to see them again.

Determined to connect he went backstage, met the players and they exchanged numbers. In under a year, he flew back to Dayton from his New York offices with contracts in his briefcase. Sensing the need for a stronger band concept, Byron, Beau and the group began searching for a new name, something that would give them a more universal and cosmic vibe. Beau said Celestial Sun, but band member John Wagner suggested they make it less of a mouthful and just call it Sun.

They thought surely somebody already had that name, but they didn’t. Thus. Sun was born. Shortly after that, the group was being signed to Capitol by Larkin Arnold.
