  • Jazz-Funk

    Again with two pages of smooth jazz CD reviews, the Pieces of a Dream newie is the cherry on top here, too, but also the latest sets by Gato Barbieri, Bob Baldwin, Marion Meadows, Kim Waters and Mike Phillips are well worth a mention.

  • Upfront Soul

    Two strong soul singers who have only released one solo album a long time ago, Terry Steele and Greg Walker are back with brand new CD's. Temika Moore was introduced on her Website by Will Downing, who writes that Temika has all the elements of a good singer. She really has, having an interpretive style reminiscent of Rachelle Ferrell. The Organic Soul Vol 2. compilation introduced us Kevin Chandler Band and The Real Kofy Brown - our editor checks the original albums here. Other interesting new CD's fteaure the traditional, solid soul CD by Tonia Woods, plus the acclaimed debut sets by neo-soul heroines Conya Doss and Goapele.
