One of the most sweetly soulful sets we've ever heard from Peven Everett – a laidback session that's a nice change from some of his more upbeat grooves – and one that places him solidly in the territory of mid 70s IsleyBrothers or Marvin Gaye! Tunes are simple, but have a real sense of warmth – thanks to Peven's mellow vocals and keyboard work, and occasional jazzy touches that shade things in with a nice sense of color. There's beats at the bottom of most tunes, but they never move too fast – more in a mellow or midtempo mode that's totally great – and a whole new side of Peven's mighty talents. Titles include "Pressure", "First Choice", "Always Love You", "Enough Of You", "I Know When I Met", "Soul Music", "Do It Again For The Last Time", "I Ain't Goin Nowhere", and "Last Night". CD
Timeless soul from Maysa – who here lends her sweet molasses vocals to numbers made famous by Stevie Wonder, Teddy Pendergrass, The IsleyBrothers, Chaka Khan, The Stylistics, Roberta Flack and others! Maysa fully employs the sophisticated mellow soul approach on this set – befitting the material quite grandly with her sultry vocals, and tight band providing laidback keys, snapping drums & percussion, and some jazzy smooth horns and flute in spots. The most mature outing yet from the gifted vocalist whose roots helped plant Incognito! Tracks include "Wishing On A Star", "Don't Say Goodnight", "All I Do", "Love Won't Let Me Wait", "Come Go With Me", "Betcha By Golly Wow", "Playing Your Game, Baby", "Love Comes Easy", "Any Love" and "The First Time (I Ever Saw Your Face)".

Marlon Saunders —
Enter My Mind ... CD Soul Brother (UK), 2003. New Copy ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning debut from singer Marlon Saunders – a fantastic male vocalist who's gonna be huge! Marlon's got a smooth and seductive vocal approach that really takes us back to mellow 70s IsleyBrothers, later ballad tracks from the O'Jays, and even a bit of the best work from Marvin Gaye – classic-styled vocals that have a universal soul appeal, sung with a confidence and depth of expression that's rare for male singers in the current age! Marlon's known for his earlier work with the group Jazzhole, but on this set, he moves way ahead of that group – emerging as a bright new soul star to rival the work of D'Angelo or Maxwell! Titles include "Inspiration", "You Move Me", "Enter My Mind", "Keep Doin What Ya Do", "Stone Out Of Hope", and "If It's Magic". CD
