Mellow house by Yogi featuring Brihonny Thomas and The Sunburst Band starts this whole thing off nicely. I absolutely love those two tracks. It also stands to reason that Jazzanova’s Of All The Things is one of my favorite albums of the year, which is why Let Me Show You follows up so nicely. Thanks to Jazzanova, I was also introduced to Paul Westbeech which is why I had to pick up Welcome to the Best Years of Your Life. Get Silly is a great track that sets it off nicely – and I’m still marinating on the album.
Thanks to the greatness of Twitter (check here if you want to find out what I do everyday), I was introduced to Eric Campbell and was greatful to receive his blesssing for Fall In An Out Of Love, an outstanding track with vocals by K. Alyn.
Look forward to hearing more from him in 2009, and getting to know the guy better. Liquid Spirits’ new CD Music features tracks with Leon Ware and Phonte, and puts me in the mindset of Quintessence which is why I like the track, If You Don’t Love Me.
K-SON’s That’s Music is a solid track that prompted me to go to CD Baby and pick up his CD. It stands to reason that I also appreciate Jazzanova’s Lucky Girl which is an absolutely jazzy solid track. The Flowriders’ Matter is a nice neo-soul track which prompted me to get both their CDs, so check them out. I then end the goodness with The Rural’s Brand New Day, Foreign Exchange’s Valedictorian, and a track from Jean Baylor (formerly of Zhane), Made To Love You.
