Isley Brothers / Angela Winbush: Universal Amphitheatre, Universal City, Calif. (April 1990)

isleysBy Scott Goldfine

The Isley Brothers, now just Ronald (vocals) and Marvin (bass), played tribute to their vast musical legacy during a sharp, hourlong set at the Universal Amphitheatre (Calif.) Sunday night. Ronald’s smooth voice and distinctive phrasing shined on such standards as “Between the Sheets” and “Take Me to the Next Phase.”

He shared the spotlight with Angela Winbush, whose vocal gymnastics were impressive, although slightly overdone.
