Short detour in the middle of this absolutely brilliant album.
Agreed - I like what they did with the melodies and harmonies though.
Released in 2000, so I’m sure it put a smile on MJ’s face and got his foot tappin when he heard it.
I’ve only just discovered it now. Apple Music’s radio mode is killer good.
Yes, I did add the album to my library. Song now in a Temperton playlist. Thanks for the find.
Talking about gorgeous melodies & harmonies…
Samples “You Are Everything” by The Stylistics and “The Payback” by James Brown.
Production by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Vocals by Ms. Blige.
What more do you need.
Love this new track by Ms. Keys. Co-written by ‘The Dream’.
Speaking of the roots of popular soul/R&B… 1965… and this legend (Smokey) is still performing today…
This kid just has way too much soul in his vocals for his age here. 11 years old…
Wow. Before T-Pain, before Teddy Riley, before Roger Troutman… (press to play the video)
Great collab and great production.
Miss the old Kanye (i.e the young Kanye)
I just saw an interview on BBC 1 that there is a bio pic of Teddy Pendergrass being released with the support of his family. A lot of archive pictures and interviews have been unearthed. Look out for it…
If you don’t know Teddy, (If you don’t know me by now) he was originally the voice of Harold Melvyn and the Bluenotes.
- bass guitar
- French horn
- Producer and Recording Engineer too…
Oh my goodness I wish I had 1% of this musical talent
Talk about having a secret weapon on your album…
Love her vocal runs from 4:10 to 4:15. A gentleman in the crowd seems to like it too
Goosebumps at 4:20
Trombone virtuoso Jeff Bradshaw feat. the sublime vocals of Glenn Lewis
Probably my favourite track of 2018. Also off my favourite album of 2018.
Featuring the sensational Christian Scott on trumpet.
Jazz, HipHop and R&B converge.
Gorgeous dynamic range too, for those of you playing the DR numbers game at home
