✨✧ Adriana EvansAdriana Evans ... CD
Loud/BMG, 1997. Used ... $1.99
A late 90s effort from this west coast singer, on the cusp of the NuSoul movement, and with a nice nod in that direction, betraying her jazzy pedigree. With some great production courtesy Dred Scott, who had released a nice hip hop LP a few years earlier, that was largely slept on, this Lp has a sound that definitely touches of some of the finer moments of 70s sophisticated soul, a breath of fresh air when it came out and still sounding great today. Titles include "Swimming", "In The Sun", "Love Is All Around", "Heaven", "Hey Brother", "Trippin", "I'll Be There", "Love Me", "Seein Is Believin", and "Reality". (Soul, Neo Soul) CD
(Out of print. BMG club pressing.)

✨✧ VariousSoul Cafe (3CD set) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2007. Used 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
The Soul Cafe's a mighty hip place thanks to a great blend of soul tracks pulled from the rich catalog of Expansion Records! Most of the tracks here are relatively current – from the past decade or so – and showcase Expansion's great approach to modern soul music – a style that's drenched in classic influences from days back, but which never tries to just remake the old – and instead, always comes up with something new and fresh. A number of tracks feature older artists, given their chance to shine again – sitting nicely next to younger singers, who've become a key discovery of Expansion and their ear for great music! 3CD set features a whopping 36 tracks in all – with titles that include "Say You Will" by Nicole Jackson, "Indigenous Love" by Keni Burke, "Sistah" by Marva King, "Cupid's Arrow" by Frank McComb, "Special One" by Kloud 9, "Work Of Art" by Byron Woods, "Memory" by James King, "Brother" by Ian Martin, "Star" by Brigette, "Runnin" by Maysa, "Treasure" by Leza, "I Was Born To Love You" by Timeless Legend, "Can't Go Back (rmx)" by Peggi Blu, "Give Me The Sunshine" by Leo's Sunshipp, "Give & Let Live (Soul Searchin mix)" by Hope Collective, "We Got To Stick Together" by Beverly & Duane, and "A Chance For Hope" by The Live Band.

✨✧ Columbia NightsIn All Things ... CD
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
We waited years for the full length debut of Columbia Nights, and not only was it worth the wait, it's a stunner – a beautiful batch of timeless spacey soul! Essentially the multi-instrumentalist trio of John E Daise, Jason "Brotherspanky" Edwards and Hayling Price, they have really expansive sound – built from bass, synths, keys, percussion that lifts it to cosmic heights – in a perfect mix of atmospheric instrumentals and vocal-led tracks. The sound carries influences from soaring 70s soul jazz, to post millennium electronic soul – which mingle seamlessly, and carry a real depth of genuine soul, however spacey the composition! The guest vocalists are top notch, including Diggs Duke, Aaron "AB" Abernathy, Vaughan Octavia and others, and titles include "Sphere", "Cerulean", "In All Things", "Circle", "Now" with Diggs Duke, "The Rhythm" with Sarai Abdul-Malik, "Coming Home" with Aaron "AB" Abernathy, "Neverend/All For You" feat Siara Shawn, "Ever Between" with B Jamelle and "Glide" with Vaughan Octavia.

Mica ParisIf You Could Love Me ... CD
Wounded Bird, 2005. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
The first new album in years from UK soul chanteuse Mica Paris – best known for her early 90s efforts of pure soul vocals backed by popping, synth rich productions – and carrying that vibe very handily a few years into the new millenium! Mica has the class to avoid the overreaching vocal histrionics of lesser modern soul singers, with a breathy, emotive groove that's always in service of the tune. She's once again backed by the Brecker Brothers for this set – who some lively trumpet and sax behind the bubbly, club ready sound of producer Bernard Grobman! Tracks include "I Luv You", "I Just Wanna Dance", "I'll Never Say In Love You Again", "I'm Not Your Mother", "Uh Oh", "18 Months And 26 Days", "Pack Your Bags", "Sweet Serenity" and more.

Snarky PuppyFamily Dinner Vol 2 (180 gram pressing – with DVD & download) ... LP
Universal, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 34.98
Snarky Puppy serve up a second family dinner – and this time around, their sound is even more expansive than before – still strongly done in that warm, tight blend of live instrumentation, but also augmented with a host of global elements as well! The core style is still very soulful, and in that classic Snarky Puppy mode – but the group have also gotten a bit more sophisticated in the way they open up their tunes, and allow room for additional vocals and instruments – really showing some great growth, even in the way they pace the record. The music maybe builds a lot more than before – not just leaping into a tune, but finding its right sort of space – and allowing room for lots of guest contributors – including Susana Baca, Becca Stevens, Charlie Hunter, Big Ed Lee, Knower, David Crosby, and Laura Mvula. Titles include "Liquid Love", "Somebody Home", "Sing To The Mooon", "I Remember", "Don't You Know", "I Asked", and "Molino Molero". And if that's not enough, the DVD also features 5 more tracks that aren't on the core album – "Brother I'm Hungry", "Be Still", "Fuego Y Agua", "Shapons Vindaloo", and "One Hope".

✨✧ Lewis TaylorLewis Taylor (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island/Caroline (UK), 1996. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a classic from UK singer Lewis Taylor – one of the best blue-eyed soul albums recorded in the 90s, and a record that's still years ahead of its time! In a stretch when so many others were putting out fake soul – or breathing heavily on downtempo records – Taylor found a way to really deliver something new and unique, yet also come across with the classic mellow flow of 70s work by artists like Marvin Gaye or The Isley Brothers! Taylor's vocal delivery here owes plenty to both, but the production is very crisp and individual – handled by Lewis himself, and in a spare mix of modes that's quite different than some of the more stock "beats and keys" modes that would take over underground soul in the next decade! Instead, there's this great range of subtle tones and textures that work beautifully alongside Taylor's sublime vocals – all to suit some beautifully-written tunes too. Titles include "Lucky", "Track", "Betterlove", "Right", "Spirit", "Bittersweet", and "Whoever". 2CD set is wonderful – and includes 12 more bonus cuts from singles and other projects – including "Asleep When You Come", "You Got Me Thinking", "Waves", "Trip So Heavy", "A Little Bit Tasty", "Lewis III", "Pie In The Electric Sky/If I Lay Down On You", "I Dream The Better Dream", "Bittersweet (ext)", and "Lucky" in three different mixes by Kruder & Dorfmeister!

✨✧ Louie Vega & OthersStarring – XXVIII ... CD
Vega, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive project from the great Louie Vega – a man who's given us plenty of majestic moments since his early years in Masters At Work and Nuyorican Soul – but an artist who's maybe outdone himself here, thanks to help from a huge amount of guests and singers! The "starring" in the title doesn't refer to Louie, but to the key talents who help shape the individual tracks on the set – a talent roster large enough to include Vikter Duplaix, Tony Momrelle, N'Dea Davenport, The Clark Sisters, Winans Brothers, Zara McFarlane, Funkadelic, Jocelyn Brown, Kenny Bobien, Josh Milan, Lisa Fischer, Byron Stingily, Leroy Burgess, Caron Wheeler, and others – all of whom work perfectly with Louie – not in a way that has their talents thrown in for extra spice, but instead very deeply woven into the fabric of Vega's music – in a richly collaborative spirit that makes the album a gem all the way through! All the cuts are in the positive, soulful, inspirational vibe we've always loved in Louie's projects – and titles include "Gift Of Love", "Angels Are Watching Me", "Ain't That Funkin Hard On You", "You Are Everything", "Joy Inside My Tears", "You've Got It Bad Girl", "Es Vedra", "Everlasting Love", "I Deserve To Breathe", "Ain't No Stopping Love", "Gimme Some Love", "Can We Keep This Going", and "See Some Light".

✨✧ VariousSoul Togetherness 2015 – 15 Modern Soul Room Gems ... LP
Expansion (UK), 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
This great series keeps on going strong – with over a decade's worth of excellent compilations – every one of them as wonderful as this sweet little set! The music's a mix of contemporary cuts that hit a sweet modern soul vibe – upbeat, but never too strongly in a house or dance music mode – and instead, just upbeat tracks that have some wonderfully soulful vocals in the lead, and plenty on the bottom to make them groove in just the right way! Titles include "Hey Lover" by Charlie Wilson, "Just You & Me" by The Creators, "Show Me (Nigel Lowis rmx)" by McCraei, "Feel Right" by Joe Buhdha Presents Terri Walker, "Believe In Love (Soupersona mix)" by JD73, "All This Way For Love" by Syleena Johnson, "Dance (Louie Vega Latin soul mix)" by 3 Winans Brothers & The Clark Sisters, "Round & Round" by Opolopo with Diane Charlemagne, "Do You Know" by Lorraine Clarke-McGhie, and "Somewhere Around (Soul Talk rmx)" by Aaron Parnell Brown.
