The legendary writer, arranger, and producer Charles Stepney has hundreds of credits for the likes of Minnie Ripperton and Earth, Wind & Fire, but he never released a solo album before his death in 1976. Five decades later, the tape recordings of Step on Step finally see the light of day, organised and narrated by Stepney’s three daughters. Bustling arrangements bracketed by candid conversations and studio tours weave throughout, moving from silky, liquid funk to the heavy piano chords of Stepney’s “baroque soul”, as his deft fingers map out delicate melodies in the joyful experimentation of his lovingly curated music.
