VIDEO Whitney Houston "I look to you"

Here's the first video of the diva comeback from her album "I look to you" for her single also entitled "I look to you"

Mayer Hawthorne....It feels like Motown

Here's the picture .... late 60's,Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson , Teddy Pendergrass, smooth voices, Motown sound...You got it ? Okay.Now 2009, Mayer Hawthorne," A strange arrangement", Motown sound revival ...

We already knew that Soul music was back ( in fact it was never gone ) with the O-mazing, excellent " The way I see it " by Raphael Saadiq or with Eli " Paperboy" Reed , Mayer Hawthorne is just making it more soulful.

This Michigan born soul singer's debut album is everything but strange. It got this vintage Motown soul vibe that you love to hear without doing too much of it. It's just perfect. 12 tracks and you just listen to the whole thing without skipping.
It's 2009 and the Motown sound is still alive...Berry Gordy must be proud of it !!

"One track mind"

LIVE VIDEO Maxwell " Bad habits "

To say that I love Maxwell will be beyond what I actually feel....There's no need to use words when his music speaks for itself

VIDEO N'Dambi "Can't Hardly wait"

This is the video of the first single from the upcoming album " Pink Elephant" by N'dambi. I think she's HOT ... I "can't hardly wait" for the album !!!

NEW MUSIC Jaguar Wright "Beautiful" and "Surely Shawty"

Jaguar Wright just released 2 new songs " Beautiful" and "Surely Shawty" that sounds great.

"Surely Shawty"

Rob Murat has "So much to say"...and I'm listening. Are you ?

Listening to Rob Murat is quite a pleasant experience. the New Yorker's first album " So much to say" featured collaborations with Amanda Diva, J.Ivy . His first single " Dilemma" ( and his first music video here is just like the album, i.e. very good.
Rob Murat's music is fresh and has this unique sound. So far I have many favorites songs on this album the addictive " Know" or " Ricky??" ( by the way " Ricky! Ricky! Ricky! Who the hell is Ricky ? " can't get that out of my head ;) ) or "Something magical".
Rob Murat is definitely one soul singer you need to listen to. To help you make up your mind here are some of my favorites

"Ricky??" Play/Download

"Know (live)" Play/Download

In the " Confessional" with Russell Taylor

I gotta confess that I didn't had the chance to listen to the philly native soul singer Russell Taylor debut album "Somewhere in between" and I feel now that I have to.

I gotta confess that "Let me love you" is definitely one of my favorite and I enjoy the fact that Russell Taylor is actually telling stories, good stories like with " Press Pause" .

I gotta confess that he manages to make that classical soul sound contemporary and his mid-tempo songs are quite lively but his ballads are the ones I love most... just the way I love them with sensitive lyrics and his smooth voice making the rest.

I gotta confess that Russell Taylor is an artist I just discovered and I just can't wait to hear more and more ..

Calvin Richardson covering Bobby Womack...Do I have to say more ?

I gotta say I always enjoyed Calvin Richardson's voice and his previous records were great but with that latest album that he self-wrote and produced is a must-have.He had me on the first song.

Calvin got the groove covering the Bobby's Womack classics such as "Across 110th street". And listening to that album actually makes you feel good. He succeeded to gave justice to the great Bobby Womack. Covering a song especially classics from a legend is hard and the challenge is to keep his own personality as an artist without " destroying" the original songs ( Whitney on that one I'm talking to you...still mad on the cover of " A song for you"). His version of " I'm through trying to prove my love to you" is simply gorgeous. Now I'm back to listening to it and please get this album you won't be disappointed...
Watch the videos

So Whitney is back!!!! (But not the old Whitney …)

The world has been waiting for this comeback for so long (including me).We all have been missing our beloved diva and this year she's back with this brand new album "I look to you" with productions by Alicia Keys or Akon among others.

Unfortunately I still can't make up my mind on this record. Maybe my expectations were too big .Whitney still got her talent, she's still the legend but we're far from the Whitney we knew back in the days .Maybe I'm being too hard on her. She's been through a lot and she's still here. There are some songs that I enjoyed listening to but some are just beyond Whitney's level especially that attempt to cover the Donnie Hathaway classic "A song for you" that never should have been . "I didn't know my own strength" or "I look to you" are songs that reminds me of the old Whitney (especially the old Whitney's voice), those good old days when Whitney and amazing voice were synonymous. But well as I said I don't want to be too hard on her after all it's Whitney Houston we're talking about. Let's just hope that her voice will be back the more she performs meanwhile she's still gorgeous ( See the Ebony Cover )

Here are videos of her performance on GMA

Ledisi is really “turning me loose”…

First of all, I hope you already own your copy of Ledisi's Turn me Loose yeah I'm talking to YOU. Ok now I know that you do or about to (ahem!ahem!) *insistent glances* let me tell you that I am such a fan of Ledisi and ever more now. "Turn me loose" is her new album and just like the wine her albums are getting better and better with time. Ledisi's fourth studio album is sounding more modern than what she has done before. I've been introduced to Ledisi's amazing voice in 2002 with her album "Feeling orange but sometimes blue". I immediately fell in love with "Sugar/Brown Sugar" and "In a sentimental mood" and bought her first album "Soulsinger". In 2007 she released her Grammy nominated album "Lost & Found" that completed so gracefully my discography.

This new record sounds R&B, funky, hip-hop …in other words here we're talking about grown folks' music. This record is filled with her personality and so far after more than two weeks of intense daily listening I can't choose a favorite song ( and I tried very hard trust me *wink* ). From "Running" the opening song of the album to the energetic cover of Buddy Miles "Them changes" without forgetting the addictives "Alone" or "I need love" this album is just one of the best of this year.

Here are videos where she explains where she found inspiration for her new album and how she wanted to make it
