First Listen: Infinitive Vibes helps us to find "One Love"

(May 25, 2024) In our current musical landscape, artists have become more creative with regard to collaborating and crafting content. One entity that is taking unique measures with their music is the collective of Infinitive Vibes. Led by saxophonist Stabe Wilson, Infinitive Vibes is an independent group of artists and musicians whose main goal is to ensure that everyone who contributes to a work under their umbrella is credited and compensated properly and equally.

Happy birthday to the great Gladys Knight

Happy birthday to Gladys Knight, born May 28, 1944.

By any measure, Gladys Knight is one of the greatest Soul singers of all time (she was voted #3 by SoulTracks readers).  Her expressive, powerful voice became the model for two generations of singers from Jennifer Holliday to Alicia Keys, and her work with the Pips stands tall among the best Soul music of the 60s, 70s and 80s. 

ST Premiere: Bluey from Incognito leads Citrus Sun on a Bobby Caldwell classic

(May 24, 2024) When you hear the name Bobby Caldwell, you likely immediately think of his signature song “What You Won’t Do for Love.”  However, that classic isn’t the only song of Bobby’s to have been sampled in hip-hop or covered in the R&B/jazz realm.

First Listen: B.Slade is no longer a "Doubtin' Thomas"

(May 23, 2024) Faith is a noun. Doubt, faith’s opposite can be a noun and a verb. From a religious standpoint, doubt becomes a problem when it moves from being a thing to an active expression of lack of faith or outright disbelief. The most famous example of an active expression of doubt is the Disciple Thomas, who said that he needed to see wounds in Jesus’s hands, feet and side before he believed he had been risen.

Happy Birthday to Larry Blackmon of the R&B group Cameo!

Happy birthday to Larry Blackmon of the group Cameo, born May 24, 1956.

Cameo has a permanent place in R&B history as one of the great funk groups, with both decades of great hits and sense of fun that was infectious. Originated in The Big Apple in 1974, the group was over a dozen players strong, with strong horn and rhythm sections, and the name the New York City Players.

World Premiere: Con Brio shines on "Don't Mind Me"

(May 21, 2024) Con Brio is defined as music that is performed with spirit, vigor, or liveliness. The English translation from the term’s Italian roots is “with energy.” The band Con Brio sought to encapsulate that spirit on its latest single, “Don’t Mind Me,” which is also the first song written for the band’s new lead vocalist, Viveca Hawkins.

Happy birthday to iconic singer Rachelle Ferrell

Happy birthday to singer and songwriter extraordinaire Rachelle Ferrell, born May 21, 1961. The six-octave vocalist has spent the last three-plus decades as one of the most respected artists in both the jazz and soul arenas.

Born in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, Ferrell grew up in a musical family and began playing piano at the age of six. She attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she studied composition and arrangement. After graduation, she began performing in various jazz clubs and soon caught the attention of some of the industry's top musicians.

Happy Birthday to the great Johnny Gill

Happy birthday to Johnny Gill, born May 22, 1966. D.C. native Johnny Gill arguably possesses one of the clearest, strongest Soul voices of his generation, though arguably his fame has never quite matched his broad talent.

Kirk Franklin, The Clark Sisters, Yolanda Adams and more announce all-star tour

(May 20, 2024) Today the legendary Kirk Franklin, a 19-time GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, songwriter, and artist, is thrilled to unveil the highly anticipated 2024 leg of The Reunion Tour. Joining him as co-headliners are esteemed peers and gospel music icons Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, and The Clark Sisters. Kierra Sheard-Kelly will also join the tour as a special guest across all dates.

First Listen: Funkin' For Jamaica's Tom Browne helps Johnny Britt bring the funk

(May 20, 2024) Tom Browne’s 1980  banger “Jamaica Funk” is a classic. With that song, Browne conducted a master class on how to make danceable, on-the-one jazzy funk. “Jamaica Funk” is a tune that has held up remarkably well more than 40 years after its release. It’s easy to see why a generation of trumpet players who operate in that same jazzy funk vein would view Browne as an inspiration and mentor.
