Steve Winwood- Junction Seven

“Narada Michael Walden says that each decade has its own rhythm,” Steve Winwood informed me here In the Studio about his 1997 Junction Seven co-producer . “He says that’s what separates the music of the ’60s,’70s,’80s, and ’90s.” Walden certainly would know, having impressed providing percussion with stints in John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Jeff Beck, Robert Fripp, Carlos Santana, and Journey as well as music producer for Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Jefferson Starship to name just a few.

Steve Winwood talks about his seventh solo album, Junction Seven, and how a so-called “solo” album inevitably isn’t at some point in the creative process, in my classic rock interview. -Redbeard
