Jay King

Diversiti
Welcome to this weeks Science of Soul , Its back live after a couple of weeks break due to my stateside trip. Featured album this week comes from Club Nouveau member Jay King. His new album "Helen's Son" is a fitting tribute to his late mom I am sure she is looking down with pride. I got 3 tracks on this weeks show and more to follow. Highly recommended .Soul Junction just keep on uncovering some real gems this time it's Robert Montgomery its a double A side 7 inch single I have chosen "Time Of The Day" for this weeks playlist. 90s soul lovers will be pleased to see The Force MDs are back with a new single "Don't Rush" from there forthcoming album "Fly With Me" and Baltimore's very own soul super group Diversiti are back, Devon, Eriq & Damon have delivered a real polished performance on there new single "Rain Drops (crying for you)" .

Al Lindsey
A lot of old school greats as always on the Science of Soul and this weeks show closes out with 3 tracks from one of my heroes Curtis Mayfield as many of you will be aware I had the honour of collecting Curtis's award at this years R&B Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony held at Detroit's iconic Music Hall venue. . It was a great event that featured performances from Freda Payne, Carl Carlton, The Dramatics and a show stopping duet from Gerald Alston & Carla Cooke truly a night to remember. The R&B Hall of Fame goes from strength to strength thanks to all the hard work of CEO Lamont Robinson and was a high point of the Detroit Music Weekend that also included a live performance from Aretha Franklin. Thanks for bearing with me over the last couple of weeks it's nice to be back live.

George McCrae

George McCrae
Welcome to this weeks Science of Soul. Featured album this week is George McCrae's excellent set that cam out last year and I have to admit I completely missed it. Big thanks to Melvin Jordan and George for bring it to my attention "Love" is the albums title and I gotta say George as never sounded better, George is one of those Iconic figures from the 70s who was at the forefront of that Miami soul explosion that took the world by storm and over 40 yrs later he still remains a valid and viable artist, I think "Love" just might surprise you.

Other new music this week Includes Bigg Robb this guy is amazingly popular in the states and if you get a chance to catch him live you will quickly see why. In light of recent events in Manchester it's only fitting to include Brian Owens "Prayers for my Children" it's even more relevant today than ever. Southern Soul giants Lacee & Willie Clayton have teamed up for the beautiful duet "Three Way Love Affair" and the Classy Ms Tanya Holt is getting great reviews for her latest hit "How Do You Feel" plus album tracking from Michon Young and Avery Sunshine. We have our usual mix of old school classics some you will remember some you wont, Listen out for the ORIGINAL version of Prince Phillip Mitchell's classic composition "Hurts So Good" by Katie Love it pre dates Millie Jackson's hit buy a couple of years. Ok sit back enjoy the music and thanks for stopping by.

Sol biography:
Imagine if you will, being a great singer working for years in a supporting capacity; singing background for some of the greats in the industry. Greats like, Patti Austin, Lalah Hathaway, Eric Benet, Will Downing, Maysa Leak, Phil Perry only to name a few and then one day you meet a musician and producer who ask you if would you be interested in coming upfront and doing a solo project. Well, this is how the new career of Sol came about and the rest is history! When you combine Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross and Musiq Soulchild, you get Sol! This record is super strong from the first track to the last and no fillers, just great music. Some tracks make you want to dance, others make you just want to sit and listen. These songs and the interpretation of them will blow you away. The recipe for this project: A touch of jazz, touch of smooth jazz, touch of neo-soul and large heaping dose of groove! Sol is not only a dynamic vocalist with a great personality; he is a songwriter who possesses the natural ability to write great songs and arrange vocals with ease and performs with passion! Get ready to hear some awesome music from this emerging artist! (Amazon)
