The second jazz-based release by the duo on Linn Records.
Hue and Cry are two brothers, Greg (piano, composer) and Pat (vocals, lyricist) Kane. Making soul, jazz and pop music since 1984, Next Move is the duo's ninth studio album.
Next Move features drum 'n' bass, R&B and Nuyorican Latin-funk. The album contains a cover of Prince's 'Sign 'O' the Times', which is stripped bare and built up again as an aggressive bebop number.
The piano-led ballad 'Pawn of the Weekend' contrasts with the frantic 'Speed O'lite'. Tommy Smith guests on saxophone.
