New Voice

CD (Item 661366) Lola's Child, 2007 — Condition: Used
$8.99 ...

CD

It's a bold thing to call a debut album "new voice" – but Kendra Ross more than lives up to that promise with this tasty little set – a fresh, no-nonsense batch of contemporary soul tracks that should certainly put Kendra on the map! Kendra's collaborated with others in the past, and the album features guest work by Eric Roberson, Talib Kweli, and others – but Ross is the key star here, working with a no-cliche approach to her music, and a style that's more sophisticated than some of her Neo Soul contemporaries – often with a nice degree of jazz in the mix that reminds us of the promise we first heard in the music of Carmen Lundy. Titles include "Real Deal", "New Voice", "Send Me Somebody To Love", "1st Time", "Has2B", and "Very Well".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Sy Smith, 2005. Used
Great work from one of the freshest new voices around – the lovely Sy Smith! Sy's got a cosmically-inflected musical vision here – one that seems to borrow bits from the London and Philly underground, but deliver an overall groove that's got plenty of sunny soulful touches! Sy uses ... CD

Incognito

Incognito Remixed
Verve/Suonaphone, 1996. Used
A great package that sees the work of Incognito getting remixes and souped up a bit more – jazzy grooves gone dancefloor, served up by a host of great talents from the mid 90s. Titles include "Always There (MAW rmx 96)", "Givin It Up (Rober Sanchez Uplifting club mix)", ... CD
Canyon (Japan), 2002. Used
A great album gets even better – as Bluey and crew open the door, and let in a host of great guest talents to remix their impeccable Who Needs Love album! The set's got all the soulful magic of the original – a lasting groove that goes deeper than any of Incognito's recent albums, and ... CD

K Avett

Lioness
K Avett, 2018. Used
A great soul singer, and one with a very positive vibe – a sound that maybe grabs us the same way we felt when we first heard Jill Scott – and that's saying a heck of a lot! As you might guess from the title, K Avett's a singer who's not to be taken lightly – yet while her ... CD

Incognito

Future Remixed
Talkin' Loud (UK), 1999. Used
The work of Incognito gets remixed – taking Bluey's soulful vision to a whole new level! The tracks are a good mix of NuSoul, two-step, and a bit of modern house – and titles include "Port Louis" remixed by United Future Organization, "Nights Over Egypt" remixed by ... CD
Decision, 2008. Used
Raw, funky deep soul from Brooklyn based Tre Williams and the Revelations – with a sound rooted in the classic southern sounds of Hi Records and others, but feels fresh and current – not so much in the throwback vein of others in the soul and funk underground – but a timelessly ... CD

Musiq

Soulstar
Def Jam, 2003. Used
Tripped-out headphone soul from the mighty Musiq – sounding better than ever on this album, and well earning the title of Soulstar! Musiq's really got his groove in place here – a warm, mellow, bubbling approach that recalls the style of D'Angelo, but which has more "umph" in ... CD
Verve/Suonaphone, 1995. Used
Mid period work from Bluey and Incognito – perhaps slipping a bit from the freshness of their initial albums, but still sounding a heck of a lot better than most of the groups on the market! Like previous sets, this one has a jazzy finish that's blended with a tight NuSoul vibe – the ... CD
Dome/Narada, 2004. Used
Is it us, or does Incognito just get better and better with each new record? It's been over 2 decades since Bluey first recorded under the Incognito name, but that doesn't mean that he's been sitting on his laurels at all – because this gem of an album has him sounding better than even on ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2007. Used
Mindblowing work from Jill Scott – possibly the best thing we've heard from her since her classic debut – and a record that reminds us that she's still one of the greatest soul singers around! Jill's a bit more grown up here than before – shaking off some of the more passive ... CD

Mos Def

New Danger
Geffen, 2004. Used
Mos Def brings a veering diversity to New Danger – his first album in five years – a record that hits on tried-and-true Rawkus flavored beats and rhyme schemes, slow-rolling, smoked out soul & blues, and Quickness era Bad Brains-esque arena rock! Of course our favorite cuts are the ... CD

Search Within
Mack Avenue, 2009. Used
Features Sean Jones on trumpet – with Orrin Evans on piano and Fender Rhodes, Walter Smith on tenor, and Brian Hogans on alto! CD
