Bryant's latest album, "Dinner for Two" opens with an atmospheric intro that sets the stage for the romantic evening on the French Riviera, where the music begins. This intro is crucial in establishing the album's vibe and does so brilliantly while the outro, track 12, unfolds a dreamy narrative of the romantic evening’s end. This album is instrumentally wealthy and features a diverse range of genres. From R&B Street Soul to Deep House, this album gives everyone a taste of what they love.

Blending these two genres, Bryant has crafted a catchy musical atmosphere that will make you want to toe-tap your way through the album.

Another track, "Bunches of Love", is a gem that skillfully blends hip-hop, soul, and jazz genres, emphasizing a gripping saxophone display. The instrumental chemistry creates a charismatic journey that sets up feelings of ecstasy. The album is also a sincere tribute to Teddy's favorite artist, Sade.

"Dinner for Two" is more than just an album; it's a fantastic musical journey that invites the audience to experience a world of rapture.
