K ronomyth 1.1: FERNANDO STALRISSION. I’ve seen some ugly picture sleeves in my day, and this is surely one of them. I mean, they superimposed a horse’s head on the man, then superimposed his own face on his neck, and I wouldn’t paint my house in that lumpy sweater let alone wear it to the photo shoot for my first album. Suffice it to say “The Stallion” is a much better song than its title, picture sleeve or Fernando Saunders’ status as a session bass player would lead you to believe. For those who haven’t heard his solo records (i.e., the vast majority of the oxygen-breathing world), Saunders has a good (if understated) voice, a fine production hand and a knack for writing likeable funk/pop songs with pretty, familiar melodies. “The Stallion,” cowritten with drummer J.T. Lewis, showcases all of those qualities and should appeal to fans of Prince, Scritti Politti and at least three of the Jacksons. The knock on Saunders in general and “The Stallion” in particular is that it’s behind o’ the times. If this music had been released in 1982, it would have been right on the cutting edge of pop. In the (sarcasm spoiler) brave new world of the Batdance, however, “The Stallion” seems tame. A 12-inch was also released that featured an extended mix of “The Stallion.” I haven’t heard it (or the rest of Saunders’ first album for that matter), but then again I’m allergic to cashmere.
