New Jill ScottReal Thing – Words & Sounds Vol 3 (CD & DVD deluxe edition) ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2007. Used CD & DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing work from Jill Scott – possibly the best thing we've heard from her since her classic debut – and a record that reminds us that she's still one of the greatest soul singers around! Jill's a bit more grown up here than before – shaking off some of the more passive themes of other tunes for a fuller, prouder approach that's followed through beautifully with tremendous vocals, and a production style that makes each tune explode with a range of new sonic delights! There's a sense of flow here that's simply amazing – a way of putting an album together, and putting a tune over that few other artists could ever touch – that special magic that first grabbed us in Jill's music years back, and which seems to have returned beautifully here. Instrumentation includes some especially great drums, which only add to the crisp, fresh feel of the record – and titles include "The Real Thing", "Hate On Me", "Come See Me", "Crown Royal", "Epiphany", "My Love", "Insomnia", "How It Makes You Feel", "Only You", "Celibacy Blues", and "All I". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Imagination/Crown Royal Suite" and "Rightness" – and DVD features videos from "A Long Walk", "Golden", "Cross on My Mind", "My Love", and "Hate On Me" – plus "The Reel From The Real Jill Scott", an interview featurette!

New Jill ScottWho Is Jill Scott? ... LP
Columbia, 2000. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Get ready to discover a fantastic new soul music talent! Jill Scott's the best thing we've heard in years – and she's a perfect example of the killer NuSoul trends that have been forged in the past few years by artists like D'Angelo, Mshell N'degocello, or N'Dambe (but Jill doesn't have an apostrophe mark in her name!) The record's a totally seductive blend of warm instrumentation, subdued funky beats, and immensely captivating soul vocals. The whole thing's awash in Fender Rhodes, giving it a spacey soul sound that will make the record a classic for years to come! Titles include "The Way", "Do You Remember", "Long Rain", "Love Rain", "Honey Molasses", "Slowly Surely", "Watching Me", and "He Loves Me" – but it's allllll good! The LP includes a remix of "Love Rain" featuring Mos Def! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has heavy edge wear and a promo stamp.)

Erykah BaduMama's Gun ... CD
Universal, 2000. Used ... $4.99
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

KemIntimacy ... CD
Motown, 2010. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The third album from KEM and it's a wonderful one – delivering on the promise of the title with a deeply soulful, truthful and personal approach – a record that brings grace, subtly and a timeless warmth in a way that surprises us in a wonderful way! We love a modern soul that evokes the classic, slow cooking soul of the 70s and 80s without feeling like a self-conscious throwback, and that's what KEM has done here. Lightly grooving keys, delicately layered real instrumentation and that brings an almost jazzy soul elegance – and most importantly, solid songs and truly soulful vocals. A real winner! Includes "Golden Days" with Jill Scott, plus "When I'm Loving You", "Can You Feel It", "Share My Life", "Human Touch", "If It's Love", "You're On My Mind" and more. CD

New Conya DossPoem About Ms Doss ... CD
Nu Mecca/Dome (UK), 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The amazing first album from Conya Doss – a groundbreaking album from the first wave of the Neo Soul revolution – finally back out on CD! On this first album, Conya's already at the top of her game – really moving forward past more familiar modes of singers like Jill Scott or Erykah Badu – and showing that poise and professionalism can still have a nice sort of edge when recorded in the right way! Instrumentation features great keyboards and gentle beats – nicely set up to allow Conya's vocals to dominate strongly, yet never in a way that's too showy, or too overdone. Titles include "Good Good", "You Really Hurt Me", "One More Try", "Coffee", "Starship", "All Because Of You", and "That's Not Love". CD

New LedisiSoul Singer – The Revival ... CD
LeSun, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of modern soul – very much in the vein of Jill Scott, Laurnea, N'Dambi, or some of the other current underground divas from the US indie soul scene! Ledisi's got a heck of a voice – very rich and mellow, in a style that reminds us a bit of classic work by jazzy soul singers like Jean Carn or Dee Dee Bridgewater, but with more of a bite, and more of a hip hop sensibility. The tracks on this debut set are wonderfully produced – blending together jazzy instrumentation and heavy beats with some warm soul arrangements that are both totally fresh, yet also infused with a classic approach to the music. The record's a treasure, and will be one of the best new soul albums you've bought in recent years! Titles include "Stop Livin In Ya Head", "Hotel", "Groove On", "Free Again", "Papa Loved To Love Me", "I Wantcha Babe", "Groove On", "Get Outta My Kitchen", and "Take Time". This is "revival" version is remixed and remastered – with the bonus tracks "Hold On To Love" featuring Meshel Ndegeocello, and a live version "Soulsinger". CD

New VRevelation Is Now Televised ... CD
BBE (UK), 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
An instant classic – and one of the best new soul albums of the 21st Century so far – the debut of Valvin Roane II, aka V – a fresh talent from the wide side of the Philly scene! V's working here with production from Jazzy Jeff, Pete Smoovah, and Pete Kuzma, Jill Scott's bandleader – and the set has an amazing quality that more than lives up to it's classic-styled cover and title! V sings with a voice that would be great enough on its own – a church-schooled mode that's deeply soulful, and which hearkens back to 70s Marvin Gaye or Stevie Wonder – but with the added production from Jeff and the Petes, he really strides forward with a bold new sound – one that's spacey one minute, crispy the next – often laidback, yet never lazy in its approach to the music. And while it would be easy enough to label this one as "classic soul" and leave it at that, V's also got a vibe that's richly his own – one that really fits the unpretentious photo on the cover, and which is a refreshing change from overly-postured male soul (and that includes even the stuff that's pretending its not!) Titles include "Born Again", which features Jill Scott – plus "Confess", "Best Friend", "Picture This", "Still", "Who Would I Be", "Would U Be Mine", "Anotha Phase", "Melody", and "Hey Pretty Baby".
