Raphael SaadiqInstant Vintage ... CD
Universal, 2002. Used ... $5.99
A tough title to live up to – but Raphael makes it happen! The album's as wonderful as you might think – all the deeply soulful styles Saadiq worked out with Tony Toni Tone, taken back through a historical range of soul music – firmly planted in a legacy that begins with Stevie Wonder, runs through Maxwell and D'Angelo, and which points the way towards the future of urban soul. Backings are very much in the beats-n-keyboards mode, but Raphael works out such a wide range of moods and modes that the album avoids any of the shortcomings of other albums in such a style. Includes guest performances by Angie Stone, Leslie Wilson, T-Boz, Calvin Richardson, and D'Angelo – and titles that include "Doing What I Can", "Be Here", "Still Pay", "You're The One That I Like", "Excuse Me", "Tick Tock", "People", "Faithful", "Make My Day", "Blind Man", "Different Times", "What's Life Like", and "Skyy, Can You Feel Me".

Raphael SaadiqJimmy Lee ... CD
Columbia, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99
The deepest, most political album we've ever heard from Raphael Saadiq – a set named after his brother, Jimmy Lee – an addict who died an unfortunate early death! Saadiq takes all the pain from his brother's trauma, and works it into a series of songs that go farther than anything we've ever heard from the singer before – music that still carries that full, rich punch that's always made the mature Raphael far more of a soulful force than we ever would have expected in his youth – but in ways that are tremendously resonant today, and do a fantastic job of linking the personal and the political. Titles include "This World Is Drunk", "So Read", "Kings Fall", "Something Keeps Calling", "My Walk", "Belongs To God", "Glory To The Veins", "Rearview", and "Rikers Island Redux". CD
Also available Jimmy Lee ... LP 26.99

Raphael SaadiqRaphael Saadiq As Ray Ray ... CD
Pookie, 2004. Used ... $6.99
Raphael Saadiq gets his pimp strut on as Ray Ray – his nom de plume for this stellar set of sophisticated, yet trippy soul! Raphael ditched the major label for this second official solo album, and he's better off without it – if ever an artist needed the freedom to chase his own ideas, without the interference of corporate overhead, Raphael is the one – even if he is a proven hitmaker. He comes out swinging – not in the confrontational sense, but in the tight, funky soul arrangements. The groove is a bit tighter than on the more sprawling Instant Vintage album – with much more of an overall party vibe. Earth, Wind and Fire are an obvious influence here, in the way the sound is clean, sophisticated and funky-as-hell at the same time. Raphael committed the majority of the sounds here to the mix his damn self, with some additional work on keys, drums and programming – but his one man army approach to the studio is as impressive as ever. Tracks include "Ray Ray Theme", "I Know Shuggie Otis", "This One", "Chick Like You", "Spanish", "Detroit Girl", "Rifle Love" featuring a reunited Tony Toni Tone, "I Want You", "Grown Folks", "Save Us" and more.

Midnight Hour (Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad)Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad Present The Midnight Hour ... CD
Linear Labs, 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad really sound fantastic here – stepping off their great work on the soundtrack for Luke Cage, and taking their music in an even stronger direction with help from an array of guest singers and musicians! Things are as rich and funky as you might expect – steeped in the same 70s traditions that Younge's used on all of his tremendous projects right from the start, but maybe given an even leaner, more crackling vibe here – as the duo moves through some wonderful soulful modes – with help from Bilal, Questlove, Keyon Harrald, James Poyser, Raphael Saadiq, Ladybug Mecca, Ceelo Green, No ID, Karolina, and others. Titles include "Possibilities", "Better Endeavor", "Mare", "Questions", "So Amazing", "Gate 54", "Do It Together", "Together Again", "Bitches Do Voodoo", "Dans Un Moment D'Errance", and "Feel Alive".

✨✧ LedisiTurn Me Loose ... CD
Verve, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Damn great work from Ledisi – an artist who hasn't missed a beat since moving to the majors a few years back – sounding almost funkier than ever before, thanks to some impeccable production and razor-sharp instrumentation! Ledisi's vocals are beyond challenge – old school deep soul we first came to love years back, on her classic indie sets – and this time around, the instrumentation seems even rawer than we remember – as if there's an old school funky combo backing the singer up on some tracks, mixed with other numbers that have some fuller backings, but still really retain their edge. Production is by a crew with some really great ears for this sort of sound – Rex Rideout, Raphael Saadiq, and others – and from the songwriting credits, it's clear that Ledisi's still very much in charge of the overall shape of the album. Titles include "Runnin", "Everything Changes", "Turn Me Loose", "Love Never Changes", "Knockin", "Goin Thru Changes", "I Need Love", "Say No", "Please Stay", and "Trippin". CD
