SOUL MUSIC FOR ADULTS!
Sometimes, I wonder if there is anything still being targeted for ADULTS that want some quality entertainment that's not a phuckin' reality tv show or porn? Is it me, or is everything starting to be targeted toward the teenagers in the new millennium. When I was a kid it was the other way around. Nothing was targeted for kids other than cartoons and kool aid. The rest of the world was for adults, so that meant kids had to take they azz to bed when the good adult shyt started to happen! This is just another reason why I know the world is coming to an end sooner than I would like. Maybe, it's also the reason why most people over the age of 16 thinks music sucks too? The urban music scene seems to have forgotten about what adults like to listen to as a whole. Where are the adult contemporary artists that resemble the greats of the past like Luther Vandross, Anita Baker, Sade, Will Downing, etc. The major record labels won't even touch an older established artist in most cases, but they'll sign a bubble-gum trio of sex crazed teenage boys without even hearing them sing first!
Well, I have two new albums that may just give you folks that urban adult soul music fix that you need. The first is by my one my favorite overlooked soul artists Ledisi. She just dropped her new joint "Lost & Found," which has a smooth jazzy sound, while keeping it oh so soulful. Good stuff! Actually, all of her albums are pretty solid. If you are diggin' the debut from Chrisette Michele, then Ledisi is right up your azz...I mean alley! I think that was a typo? Next up is Jilly a.k.a Jill Scott. Do I really need to remind ya'll how Ms. Scott is? Since, I am a music mutant, I got a chance to hear a few cuts off her new joint, and I actually think it's her best material since her debut. Jill seems to be focused, and she definitely has her swagger back as well. Hell, you can tell that by this sexy dope album cover, which is one of the two available. I actually like the cover the best because she has that look on her face that says..."Stop typing on that keyboard SoundNexx and come to Philly and do something bad to me!" So, on that note, I'll end this post here so I can get to the Metro Airport before my flight leaves....
