A long month ends, and a new one begins. I’m still putting the finishing touches
on the upcoming Old School Wednesday, since the
two questions are still in play. Meanwhile, in my ears are:
In Rotation: October 1, 2005, which are, as usual, primarily on the mellow tip.
01 – Blaze – All That I Should Know, again from Soul
Heaven Presents Blaze, which is more significant to me. This song came to
mind when I was thinking of Stevie Wonder.
02 – Paul Hardcastle – Was it Love. The singer on this track is his daughter
Maxine and is a track from Hardcastle
03 – Michael Johnson – Your Love. The first track featured here from
04 – Motorcitysoul – The Dream. I’ll never forget this track, which was
playing as I was purchasing my CDs. I picked the CD Motorcitysoul
up without hesitation.
05 – Dwele – Lay It Down. From the upcoming CD, Some
Kinda. I know I already have mine preordered.
06 – Havana – Feel My Love. Track produced by Zo! from the just released
CD entitled Life: Living In Fearless Emotion. Definitely something to check out. Check
her website here.
07 – Dwight Trible & The Life Force Trio – Try Love. With Love
Is The Answer being a CD which has J Dilla, Madlib, Sa-Ra, and more, it piqued my curiosity.
08 – Karen Ramirez – Wings. With my bad luck, I’ve misplaced Distant
Dreams twice. Relentlessly, I’ve picked it up and now I’m spinning it yet again. Think Sade meets Everything But The Girl, with a twist of drum and bass thrown in for good measure. This
CD was recorded in Italy and was masterfully performed and produced, and I’m still trying to find Karen Ramirez.
09 – Blaze – Fly. Yet another track from Soul
Heaven Presents Blaze
10 – Blackalicious Featuring Floetry – Automatique, from the solid, just-releaseed
11 – Akon – Don’t Let Up. From Trouble.
12 – Wynter – Love Like This (So Good It Hurts). From While
U Wait. I’m of the opinion that this is one of the finest compilations this
year. Don’t believe me? Ask
13 – India Arie – Simple. The second track featured here from Atlanta
Soul. Hits me to the very core.
14 – Bruno E – Feel Featuring Sarah Anne Webb. I don’t ignore anything
featuring Sarah Anne Webb, or anyone from D’Influence, for that matter. From Alma
Groove it forward.
