  1. Stop On By

SounDoctrine rewraps the popular Bobby Womack classic “Stop On By” and throws Smooth Jazz Guitarist Eric Tyus into the Fire on this Sizzling, Jazzy Funk Mix.

The Originalternativefunkjazzfusion Ensemble’s version also features the soulful saxophone of Mitch Lawrence, Trumpet & Synths brilliantly blown away by Frank Walton with the bottom held down by monster bassist Dylan Waters. Producer Jere B keeps the funk humping with his pulsating rhythms and beats.

Guest Guitarist Eric Tyus takes center stage on this popular tune covered by Rufus & Chaka Khan on their blistering “Stomping at the Savoy - Live” (released in 1983). Eric adds silky scat vocals to his searing guitar work, reminiscent of Norman Brown & George Benson.

Eric Tyus is a native of Spartanburg, South Carolina. He has been performing on guitar, and flute professionally for 20 years. He is heavily rooted in smooth jazz, but is equally equipped to tackle any genre of music. Eric has a B.S. Degree in Music, and an M. Ed. Degree in Guidance Counseling both from South Carolina State University.

Eric has opened for R&B Groups SOS Band, Starpoint, Atlantic Star, Regina Bell, Midnight Star, Ohio Players, Tony, Toni, Tone, and Ginuwine. He has performed with noteworthy Jazz Artists such as The Late Great Mr. Dizzy Gillespie, Nat Adderly, Clark Terry, Fred Wesley, and Frank Foster. He’s played with Gospel Artists Dwayne Woods, Vickie Winans, Jonathan Nelson, and CoCo McMillan. His southern roots keep him performing regularly in club venues with the smooth Jazz bands E,T,&D, and PRIDE.

“Stop on By” is SounDoctrine’s third pre-release for their upcoming “Source” project which hits the street this summer on their Niayana label. Added to selections “After All” & the most recent “Selah,” this hot cover tune continues to reveal the powerful dexterity of these Ohio natives.

Lyrics

You're welcome, stop on by
You know I'll be there baby
To dry your eyes
Though I get tired, yeah of bein' that second guy
Don't be no fool baby, you 'bout to lose your old standby

Is the material things that he's givin'?
Can you truly say that you're happy livin'?

I'm the one that's givin'
Boy, I don't want to hurt your feelings

Stop on, stop on, stop on, stop on by
You're welcome, stop on by
One day, one day, one day, one day
I might be the one to make you cry
Don't take for granted
I'll always be there
Cause there's somebody somewhere, yeah
That can truly need me

Is the material things that he's givin'?
Can you truly say that you're happy livin'?

I'm the one that's givin'
Boy, I don't want to hurt your feelings

Stop on, stop on, stop on, stop on by
You're welcome, stop on by
One day, one day, one day, one day
I might be the one to make you cry
Don't take for granted
I'll always be there
Cause there's somebody somewhere, yeah
That can truly need me

Is the material things that he's givin'?
Can you truly say that you're happy livin'?

I'm the one that's givin'
Boy, I don't want to hurt your feelings

Stop on, stop on, stop on, stop on by
