Macy GrayId ... CD
Epic, 2001. Used ... $1.99
Macy Gray's steps to a higher level on The Id – this is no "sophomore slump" to our ears – actually a helluva lot better than her big selling debut! As on her first set, Macy's vocals are wonderful – totally unique, with that warm raspy soulful style that makes her one of the most instantly recognizable soul artists since Al Green. The production is very strong too – with a sound that's new and fresh compared to most chart soul acts, but which also has its roots in the Columbia crossover sound of the late 60s, with traces of artists like Sly Stone and Janis Joplin all colliding into one cool groovy sound! Titles include "Hey Young World (part 2)", featuring Slick Rick, plus "Blowin Up Your Speakers", "Forgiveness", "My Nutmeg Phantasy" (featuring Angie Stone & Mos Def), "Sweet Baby" (featuring Erykah Badu), "Sexual Revolution", and "Relating To A Psychopath".

New John LegendGet Lifted ... CD
Getting Out Our Dreams/Sony, 2004. Used ... $2.99
You just have to love that one breath of fresh air on the pop charts at any given point – and John Legend is profoundly worthy of it! John has a feel for classic soul – strings and horns filter in with his own piano playing and emotive vocals – but the production approach is firmly contemporary. The beats are born of hip hop, and some big names from the game drop in, but this feels like John's album all the way. Very, very promising stuff – there's no one else quite like John Legend on the charts, so let's keep him there! Tracks include "Let's Get Lifted", "Used To Love U", "She Don't Have To Know", "Number One" with Kanye West, "I Can Change" with Snoop, "So High", "Refuge (When It's Cold Outside)" and more. CD

Jill ScottLight Of The Sun ... CD
Blues Babe, 2011. Used ... $8.99
Jill Scott returns with Light Of The Sun – once again lighting up modern R&B like only she can! It's a solid return to form for Jill – delivering distinctively soulful, emotional gems with toned down, natural grooves along with funky hip soul backed tracks and righteous diva groovers – and it'll sound great for years to come. We wish she'd record more often, but we're pleased enough that each album she's delivered to date has been truly excellent! Guests includ Anthony Hamilton, Doug E Fresh, Eve & The A Group. Includes "Blessed", "So In Love" with Anthony Hamilton, "Shame" feat Eve & The A Group, "All Cried Out Redux" feat Doug E Fresh, "Quick", "Making You Wait", "Missing You", "When I Wake Up", "Womanifesto", "Rolling Hills" and more. 15 tracks in all.

New SweetbackStage Two ... CD
Epic, 2004. Used ... $4.99
The long-awaited second album from Sweetback – a group that was originally known for their backing work behind Sade, but who have really come into their own with this set! The album's overflowing with warm vocals from the lovely Aya – sliding into the mix to meet the laidback and jazzy rhythms of the group – and the set also features occasional vocals from Ivana Santilli, Ladybug Mecca, Byron Stingly, and Chocolate Genius. The real charm is the instrumentation, though – as mellow-grooving and laidback as we loved in the early years of Sade – yet really fresh, updated, and with a voice that's all its own! Titles include "Voodoo Breath", "Lover", "Circles", "All My Days With You", "Mountain", "Things You'll Never Know", "Love Is The Word", "Shining Hour", and "Round & Round". CD

New IncognitoBees & Things & Flowers ... CD
Dome/Narada, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another amazing set from Bluey and Incognito – one of the few groups who seem to get better and better as the years go by! The title of this album is a line from Roy Ayers' classic "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" – and the group begin the record with an excellent cover version of that tune – really setting the scene for the warmly jazzy grooves to come! Somehow, the sound here seems more "instant classic" than ever before – perfectly recorded, deeply soulful, and filled with just the right balance of 70s styles and contemporary touches to keep things fresh throughout. Vocalists include Jocelyn Brown, Carleen Anderson, and Maysa Leak – and Bluey makes no attempt to hide his love of older music – covering tracks from both the pop and soul side of the spectrum, including "That's The Way Of The World", "Summer In The City", "Tin Man", and "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" – as well as "Always There", which is remade here in a new Incognito version, as is "Still A Friend Of Mine". Other tracks include "Everyday", "Raise", "Crave", and "Deep Waters". CD
