Stokley Williams and Ricky Kinchen of the R&B supergroup Mint Condition stopped by the set of “NewsOne Now” to discuss their new album, “Music At The Speed Of Life,” their national tour and how they have grown as a band.
During their appearance on “NewsOne Now,” Williams and Kinchen told guest host Jeff Johnson the addition of a horn section to their group has taken their music to another level.
Williams explained Prince suggested the group add horns to their ensemble. He went on to say the addition of a horn section is a part of the band’s “natural progression” and it is “… the ultimate musically. It adds so many layers of dimensions sonically.” Kinchen said, “the band continues to grow … every time we step on stage the magic is there and every time we step in the studio the magic is there.”
