British R&B trio Light of the World brought a distinctive blend of R&B, jazz and funk to such hits as “Swinging”, “London Town” and “I’m So Happy.” It’s been two decades since the trio reunited  for 1999’s “Inner Voices.” The band has picked up where it left off with a forthcoming album set for release on their own label. The album’s first single, “Temperature Rising”, finds lead vocalist Gee Bello’s performance being complemented with the guitar work of Nat Augustin and the groove of drummer Mel Gaynor. It’s a promising warm up for the band’s upcoming album and their upcoming concert at London’s Jazz Cafe on January 16. Follow Light of the World on their Facebook page.
