News and Reviews


First Listen: Leon Ware's estate releases a new holiday gem

(Marina del Rey, CA) On February 23, 2017, mere days after his 77th birthday, legendary songwriter Leon Ware departed this earth. The man had gifted the world with 13 albums of his own plus scores of timeless classic songs for others including “I Wanna Be Where You Are” (Michael Jackson), “I Want You” (Marvin Gaye), “If I Ever Lose This Heaven” (Quincy Jones / AWB), “Rolling Down a Mountainside” (Isaac Hayes / The Main Ingredient), “I Know It’s You” (Donny Hathaway) and “Sumthin’ Sumthin’” (Maxwell).

First Listen: Blue Magic returns with triple mix new single

(December 15, 2018) They are a legendary act that helped to define The Sound of Philadelphia, and they're still going strong after a half century. We're talking about Blue Magic, known for the seminal Philly Soul ballad "Sideshow" and a basketful of other hits during the 70s and 80s.

Legendary songstress Nancy Wilson dies at 81

(December 14, 2018) “I'll never forget you.  You took me into your arms of love and that made all the difference in the world, to me.” Those are the words that legendary jazz and soul singer Nancy Wilson wrote to SoulTrackers more than a decade ago when she announced to us her retirement. And those are the words I’m feeling now as I write of the death of perhaps my all time favorite female vocalist, at age 81. Wilson died today at home after a long illness.

First Listen: Abakan makes an instant classic on "The People"

(December 13, 2018) We didn’t know much about French soul singer Abakan, but we’re glad the chance finally came. Influenced by both 70s pop, soul and jazz performers, he creates a brand of music that straddles the fence of those genres in a way that would appeal equally to fans of Michael McDonald and Roy Ayers.

Janet Jackson to be inducted in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

(December 13, 2018) The third time is the charm. After being nominated twice before, Janet Jackson will finally get much deserved recognition as the newest member of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it was announced this morning. She will be part of the Class of 2019 along with The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.

Anita Baker to do artist residency in Las Vegas?

(December 13, 2018) Maybe all that retirement talk by Anita Baker was a bit premature? The divine Miss A has been performing in her "Farewell Tour" throughout 2018 to full houses and great reviews. And she has hinted on Twitter that maybe this isn't quite farewell.

"The Five Heartbeats" coming to Broadway in stage adaptation

(December 12, 2018) One of our favorite all-time movies about music, The Five Heartbeats, is heading for Broadway in a new stage adaptation, according to Deadline Hollywood. The Robert Townsend 1991 movie told the compelling story of a fictional soul vocal group, loosely based on The Dells (who consulted on the film), and was an anomaly in Hollywood at the time, but achieved near cult status over the years.

Lost Gem: Alicia Keys & John Mayer Mash Things Up Live

December 12, 2018 – These days, where an artist’s every move appears on Instagram or TMZ, and every bad date or misstep cataloged, we tend to lose focus on the fact that most rose to fame initially because they could actually sing or play an instrument, or both. So it’s refreshing sometimes to see them just enjoying what they do, reveling in the moment of their artistry. 

See The Winners! 2018 SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards

(December 10, 2018) The time is here!

We are very proud to present this year's winners, chosen by SoulTrackers from a stellar list of nominees. A special congratulations to those winners. Here they are, with a song sample from each.

Funk Brother Dennis Coffey to release "Live From Baker's"
DETROIT, Mich. — Dennis Coffey’s first recording date was in the 1950s, when the guitarist was only 15. Years later, he would become a member of the famed Detroit session group the Funk Brothers, playing on hits like Edwin Starr’s “War” and laying down the solo on the Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion.” He also performed on tracks with Parliament/Funkadelic, Wilson Pickett, Chairmen of the Board, and produced Cold Fact for Rodriguez.
