News and Reviews


First Listen: Jubilation returns in glory after tragedy

(February 18, 2019) Sometimes, something truly special can come out of seeming tragedy, and that kind of story is being written now by Reverend Dr. Stefanie  R. Minatee, who has returned from a 2015 debilitating stroke. “Rev Stef” as she is known has just recorded and released “It’s All About You” with her legendary New Jersey-based community choir, Jubilation, in time for the choir’s 20th anniversary celebration coming this June.

In Memoriam: Kofi Burbridge of Tedeschi Trucks Band (1961-2019)

(February 18, 2019) Kofi Burbridge, multi-instrumentalist and founding member of Tedeschi Trucks Band, died on Friday, February 15, 2019 at the age of 57. His death happened on the release day of TTB's new album, Signs, which acknowledges the passing of friends and family of the band through songs of elegy, hope and endurance. Kofi Burbridge played keyboards, flute and did the string arrangements on this beautiful new project.

World Premiere: JazzyD and Amber Sweeney are Unbroken

(February 18, 2019) Over the past couple of years we have introduced SoulTrackers to Perth, Australia-based producer and musician JazzyD via his very nice collaborations with Kenya, Deli Rowe, Amber Sweeney and more. And SoulTrackers have definitely reacted, finding a new favorite artist in the process.

Opinion: It is Lalah Hathaway's time

First Listen: Raheem DeVaughn helps Vandell Andrew to "Chill"

(February 16, 2019) Ready for a smart mesh of feel-good uplifting sultry soulful jazz and sexy grown folks’ R&B? Then brace yourselves. Dallas, TX-based saxophonist Vandell Andrew teams up with the self-proclaimed Love King Raheem DeVaughn on the Chill AF Mix of “Joyful Noise,” a dreamy slow jam that pours Marvin Gaye neo-soul on a palette of smooth jazz. And DeVaughn, who has bested a host of modern Quiet Storm gems like “Woman” and last year’s “Don’t Come Easy,” offers up one of his vocal exercises ever here.

“Wait a minute, that’s not Babyface” – Artist confusion abounds online

(February 15, 2019) This morning, as I anxiously perused my Release Radar, the weekly Spotify playlist that curates new releases based on my tastes and favorite artists, my brow became increasingly furrowed. The new song by Maysa appeared to be a Spanish opera, and the brand new cut “Y2K” by Babyface, was an odd electronic British rap song. So what’s up?

Second Listen: Ray Chew and Valerie Simpson classic reissued

Harlem-bred Ray Chew has been among the top arrangers in R&B for over three decades, adding his defining touch to classic recordings by Diana Ross (“The Boss”), Stephanie Mills (“Keep Away Girls”), and Alicia Keys (“You Don’t Know My Name”). Aside from serving as musical director for many popular television programs, he’s occasionally released albums spotlighting his own artistry.

First Listen: Johnny Gill finds the Woman's "Soul" in new single

(February 15, 2019) For many of us, Johnny Gill has always been part of our playlist. From the time he arrived 35 years ago, a skinny teenage kid with a big voice singing "Super Love," to his entry into supergroup New Edition, to his Babyface and Jam/Lewis-fueled smash solo career, he has proven himself to be an artist with staying power. He proved that again three years ago with his surprise hit album, Game Changer, and the number one hit "This One's For Me And You." And he's getting strong reviews on his current tour with fellow NE alum Ralph Tresvant.

World Premiere: Lenny Williams gives a Lover's treat

(February 14, 2019) Lenny Williams has been making great music for over four decades now and shows no sign of slowing down. He hit it big as the lead singer for Tower of Power and continued as a solo singer with big hits like "Cause I Love You."

Lenny's had a career resurgence over the past few years, with a great biographical episode of TV One's Unsung, and a string of adult soul releases. Lenny is now back with a new song for Valentine’s Day.
