AkikoHit Parade – A Tribute To London Nite ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2009. Used ... $13.99
Man, Akiko always knows how to keep things interesting – always moving between different genres and styles, to serve up a fresh new groove with each release! This set's got the singer hitting a host of British rock tunes, mostly from the 80s – doing them with a harder edge than you might expect from her other albums – some of the heavier modes picked up on her R&B tribute, but a lot sharper overall! There's less jazz in the mix than before, replaced by guitars that fit these tunes well – and there's almost a new wave feel to the record at points. Titles include versions of "Breakaway", "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", "Sugar Baby Love", "Video Killed The Radio Star", "99 Red Balloons", "Wake Up Boo", "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me", and "Goody Two Shoes".

Gordon ChambersSurrender ... CD
Chamber Music, 2017. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sometimes we forget how great a singer is – then hear his new music, and fall in love with him all over again! That's definitely the case with Gordon Chambers – who's waited over five years between giving us a fresh album – but who also seems to have grown tremendously in that time – showing us a soulful promise we never would have expected a decade ago! The set's wonderful – beautifully well-crafted, with some of his best songwriting ever – given a feel that's confident, but never commercial – and done in a warmly collaborative spirit with guests who include Eric Roberson, Lalah Hathaway, Carol Riddick and Ayana George – all artists who Chambers can stand proudly alongside, as he's definitely earned his place in the pantheon of the most creative soul singers around. And speaking of pride, there's plenty of it here – an upbeat, positive vibe that really makes the album sparkle – as you'll hear on titles that include "Back To Love", "I'll Never Forget It", "I Made It", "The Diamond Inside", "It Might Be You", "Love & Help Somebody", and "Circle Of Love".

✨✧ Amel LarrieuxBravebird ... CD
Bliss Life, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first indie release by Amel Larrieux – and a great one! Amel's sounding stronger than ever here – working in stripped-down territory that recalls her earlier work, yet which also put her in the forefront of underground soul artists keeping the genre fresh and strong. After years singing with Groove Theory, Sweetback, and on other projects, Larrieux's vocals are incredible – deeply-crafted, but never overdone and cloying – sliding around with a style that's sweet and righteous at the same time, and set here amidst arrangements that have some great twists and turns. Nicely defying cliche, Amel's got a sound here that's fresher than ever! Titles include "For Real", "Congo", "Sacred", "Giving Something Up", "Beyond", "All I Got", "Say You Want It All", and "Dear To Me". CD

✨✧ Teri TobinTruth Is (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sol 2 Kep, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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?".
