Music Transends Time & Space


Here are the albums in my rotation this week.


Candi Staton Candi Staton

There aren’t many soul records as highly regarded. I just bought this cd and I’ve already listened to it front to back 90 times. Her voice is experienced, full, and drenched in soul. Candi Stanton is Otis Redding reincarnate.

click through for classic Whitefield Brothers album and Afro-Cuban Jazz musician Willie Bobo


Wilie Bobo Bobo! Do Your Thing

Bobo always comes with his A game, but this precocious album is supreme and rich with culture.  Categorized as Afro-Cuban Jazz. Definitely one of his more sexier albums. Most if not all of his albums pass the test, though.

The Whitefield Brothers In The Raw

I’ll be honest, this album is not easy to come by, but if you see it GRAB IT! Predominantly instrumentals fusing Jazz, Funk, Soul and Afro don’t sleep. They often went by an alias like Bus People Express, Neo-Hip-Hot kiddies, or Poets of Rhythm.
