|Album||The Style Council: Sweet Loving Ways - The Style Council Collection|
The album Sweet Loving Ways was produced in 2008 – a full 18 years after the break-up of the band The Style Council. But let’s start at the beginning. The band was founded in 1983 by Paul Weller and Mick Talbot shortly after the break-up of the punk-band The Jam, in which Paul Weller was the head and main composer (as well as guitarist and singer). He was unsatisfied with the musical development of the band and began to seek inspiration in elements of R&B, Soul and Jazz – which then led to the founding of Style Council.
The title Mick’s up already tells us the composer of this song – Mick Talbot, the band’s keyboard player. The jazzinotes edition features a Note-for-Note transcription of Talbot’s piano part. Even though the band could boast of several pop chart hits, they broke up in 1990. The band’s record company had refused to record their fifth album – supposedly because it contained too many progressive house tracks – and as such, their contract, along with the band itself, ceased to be. But even after the break-up, which was to some extent a forced one, albums continued to appear – most recently, Sweet Loving Ways in 2008, with its relaxed, easy-going improvisational atmosphere, and from which the jazzinotes version is based. Paul Weller began a solo career after the break-up of Style Council. Mick Talbot continued to record with him but also later founded his own Jazz/Funk band, The Players.
