Derrick HodgeLive Today ... CD
Blue Note, 2013. Used ... $8.99
An amazing debut from bassist Derrick Hodge – an artist we've loved for his work in the Robert Glaper Experiment, and his previous performances with Terence Blanchard, Common, and Maxwell! Hodge has a deep, round sound that really bridges different worlds of jazz and soul – and while his resume of previous work is very impressive, his sound here is something new altogether – a spacious groove that often puts the bass right out in front, sometimes loping gently alongside keyboards, sometimes finding this special space that's airy, yet never too ethereal – a really fresh, soulful sort of style! Hod plays a bit of keyboards on the record too – and other musicians include both Robert Glasper and James Poyser on keyboards, Chris Dave on drums and percussion, Keyon Harold on trumpet, and Common on guest vocals on one track. Titles include "Live Today", "Dances With Ancestors", "Anthem In 7", "Still The One", "The Real", and "Table Jawn". (Jazz, Neo Soul) CD

✨✧ John LegendGet Lifted ... CD
Getting Out Our Dreams/Sony, 2004. Used ... $1.99
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
(BMG Direct pressing.)

Jill ScottLight Of The Sun ... CD
Blues Babe, 2011. Used ... $2.99
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.

Teri TobinTruth Is (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sol 2 Kep, 2014. Used ... $5.99
A breath of fresh air from Teri Tobin! Teri might be one of the most straight up soulful voices to come out of the Arizona scene in years and years – and she's one of our favorite indie soul singers of the post-millenium teens, period – truthfully sounding better than ever on Truth Is. There's a confident, mature vibe on the vocals and songwriting tip here that really carries it over in a big way – she completely owns the material. It's a testament to how strong Teri's voice is that there's such a wholly consistent vibe, even with a different producer credit for nearly every track – as it's all in her timelessly soulful comfort zone. Includes "Wonderfully Made", "Always Be You", "Love Happens", "Free Ya Mind", "Pool Of Love", "I Can't Help Want You", "Done", "Someone Else Will", "Make Beautiful", "#Shine", "I Am", "Where Would I Be" and more. 2 bonus tracks on the CD version not on the download release – "I Am Love" and "Where Would I Be?".
