Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 40

Leela James burst proudly back on the scene with a killer debut for Stax Records – a set that comes across with a lot deeper sound than her previous records for other labels – proof that the newly revived Stax is a very good thing! Production is by a handful of different talents – Chucky Thompson, Butter, Gerrard Baker, Kadis & Sean, and Steve White – but there's a really unified feel to the record, thanks to a strong focus on grooves that bump up from the bottom – in ways that make Leela sound a lot funkier than before – a great move, and one that certainly brings a new fire to her music! Plenty of bassy grooves here – on titles that include "Party All Night", "I Ain't New to This", "So Cold", "The Fact Is", "Supa Lova", "Let It Roll", "If It's Wrong", "It's Over", and "Mr Incredible Ms Unforgettable", with a guest appearance from Raheem DeVaughan.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
