Paul Hardcastle | Desire

Paul Hardcastle - Desire
Paul Hardcastle | Desire (Trippin ‘n’ Rhythm)
By Brian Soergel
Although British synth wiz Paul Hardcastle landed on worldwide music charts 25-plus years ago with “19” and with his Zero One alter ego, he of course has made a nice second career with smooth-as-silk smooth jazz songs. They really are his forte. Hardcastle has slipped just a bit with recent releases and, with ideas possibly thin, has lately offered a greatest hits collection, DVD set to old songs and even a relaxed, smoothed out version of “19.”
