Jill Scott & OthersCollaborations ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2007. Used 2CD ... $4.99
Jill Scott's a singer with a mighty generous spirit – and in addition to her own (all too few) recordings over the years, she's made some tremendous appearances on records under the leadership of other artists – a good deal of which are included in this set! Jill's not the kind of singer to just sleepwalk into the studio and deliver a few standard vocals when making a guest shot – and instead, she brings a new sense of life and energy to each different appearance in the set – coming across with a street-heavy vibe one minute, a more laidback cosmic mode the next, and a more classically-tuned soul sound at still another point. The set's a great illustration of the depths of Scott's rich talents – and even though we'd rather have Jill spending more time in the studio recording her own music, we're still plenty happy to have so many of her great guest appearances together in one package like this! CD features 14 tracks in all – including "Love Rain" with Mos Def, presented in "head nod" and "coffee shop" remixes – plus "Said Enough" with The Isley Brothers, "One Time" with Eric Roberson, "Good Morning Heartache" with Chris Botti, "Daydreamin" with Lupe Fiasco, "Let Me" with Sergio Mendes & Will I Am, "8 Minutes To Sunrise" with Common, "Sometime I Wonder" with Darius Rucker, "Slide" with Jeff Bradshaw, "The Rain" with Will Smith, and "God Bless The Child" with Al Jarreau & George Benson. CD
(Also features a bonus CD – with material by Hidden Beach artists who include Jill Scott, Keite, Jeff Bradshaw, Peter Black, Sunny Hawkins, and Onitsha.)

New Jill ScottLight Of The Sun ... CD
Blues Babe, 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 Erykah BaduMama's Gun ... CD
Universal, 2000. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff from Eryka Badu – sweet, mellow, soulful, and with a very righteous vibe! The record's got some impeccable production – and the best cuts have a stripped-down groove that mixes keyboards and vocals in a way that's similar to recent work by D'Angelo and Jill Scott. Eryka's all her own woman, though – and she keeps things very real with her own unique vocal style and phrasing on the lyrics. Loads of great tracks – and titles include "Kiss Me On My Neck", "Didn't Cha Know", "My Life", "AD 2000", "Bag Lady", "In Love With You", and "Booty". CD

Raheem DeVaughnLove & War Masterpeace ... CD
Jive, 2010. Used ... $8.99
Maybe the greatest set so far from Raheem DeVaughn – an artist we loved way back in his early mixtape days, and one who's grown tremendously in recent years! The set's filled with wisdom and knowledge – and comes across with this deeply soulful feel that's rooted in the righteous era of Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott-Heron, but which also bumps along with plenty of contemporary touches too – thanks to some sweet production help from Kenny Dope on some of the album's best cuts! The mix of Kenny and Raheem is a dream come true – and Cornel West drops in a few spoken bits to round out the album's sense of purpose too – alongside other guests who include Jill Scott, Bilal, Malik Yusef, Wale, and Ludacris. Cuts include "Bedroom", "My Wife", "Bulletproof", "Nobody Wins A War", "Fragile", "Mr Right", "I Don't Care", and "Black & Blue". CD

Vivian GreenLove Story ... CD
Columbia, 2002. Used ... $3.99
Prepare to discover a new favorite singer – the smooth, sweet, and soulful Vivian Green, a great new vocalist who's stepping out here with an excellent debut! The album's very much in the tradition of the best underground female NuSoul releases of the past few years – combined with the solid production feel of records by Jill Scott or Erykah Badu, which makes for a really solid album overall! Vivian's vocals start out low, then swell up as the songs unfold – bubbling up with jazzy undertones, and flowing out in a warm and seductive way. Titles include "Affected", "Fanatic", "Wishful Thinking", "24 Hour Blue", "Superwoman", "Music", "What Is Love", and "Emotional Rollercoaster". CD
(Small amount of writing in pen inside booklet.)

Eric RobersonEric Roberson Presents: The Vault Vol 1 ... CD
Eric Roberson, 2002. New Copy ... $9.99
Brilliant work from America's next great soul singer – the incredible Eric Roberson, one of the freshest male soul vocalists in years! At one level, Eric's work is steeped in the classic styles of Donnie Hathaway and Marvin Gaye – but at another, it's completely without cliche or stylistic precedent – as fresh as the best newer work by female singers like Jill Scott or Julie Dexter. Roberson's rhythmic conception is really tremendous – open, free, and presented in a way that pushes the vocals past obvious patterns that so often plague male soul singers. The set's got a really fresh approach that's also due in part to Roberson's use of a variety of producers – including Osunlade, Vidal Davis, Redhead Kingpin, and others. Jill Scott does guest vocals on the track "One Time", but it's Eric's genius that really brings the whole set home! Titles include "Rock With You", "Past Paradise", "She Couldn't Hear Me", "Rebound", "Rain On My Parade", and "When Love Calls" – and if you've been looking for a soul record to change your life, this is it! CD
(Back in print and featuring songs that did not appear on the 1.5 version!)

New RajdulariJourney Of A Woman ... CD
Rajdulari Music, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great debut from Rajdulari – a singer with a hell of a strong voice, and a great ability to mix her lyrics with funky instrumental elements – maybe the best artist to do so since the debut of Jill Scott! The record's got a really special sort of punch – a quality that's upbeat and positive, yet laidback and confident too – never over-postured, but perfectly put-together – with a quality that sends the whole thing out of the park from the very first tune! It's great to hear a record this fresh, and this striking – especially from an artist we've never dug before – a really fresh voice that's one of the best new soul singers we've heard from New York in years. Titles include "Natural", "Peace", "Open Air", "Real Love", "Miracles", "Juicy", and "Journey Of A Woman". CD

New VariousHidden Beach Presents Unwrapped Vol 3 ... LP
Hidden Beach, 2004. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A batch of smooth, jazzy instrumental takes on hip hop hits – from Hidden Beach Records! If you scratch just a little bit below the surface of the Hidden Beach roster, and dig little bit deeper than Jill Scott, there's an ultra smooth, kinda Quiet Storm vibe of sophisticated soul with lots of warm jazzy touches. That instrumental vibe is brought into these instrumental takes on hip hop's biggest hits, which keep the bouncing, kenetic appeal of the originals but play the tunes out in a modern jazz style. Linear horn and synthesizer and bass arrangements abound, with some scatty vocals over the top. Smooth jazz with a bassy bounce! Tracks include "In Da Club", "I Know What You Want", "PIMP", "Tainted" (a nice little nod to a lesser known single by Slum Village), "Lose Yourself", "Doo Wop (That Thing)", a Biggie medley, at 2Pac medley and more!

New SuchTrial & Error ... CD
Arc Sai, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the warmest soul debuts we've heard in a long time – a really well-crafted batch of work from the up-and-coming Such – who's also the first indie soul singer we've heard to hail from the Denver scene! The music is definitely contemporary soul, but there's a glistening undercurrent of jazz in the instrumentation – which gives the songs a really wonderful sense of flow as the vocals step back and forth over the gentle grooves! Most numbers are midtempo, but have a funky undercurrent – that pace that initially served Jill Scott the best at her start – although Such definitely has a style all her own. Quite strong, right from the start – and only getting better as the record rolls on – and titles include "Open Book", "Sugar Maple", "Bump This", "You", "Trial & Error", "Wake Up Call", and "Under My Skin".
