Carleen Anderson and her cousins Jhelisa and Pamela (lead vocals in Incognito’s Good Love), are present here. I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun is one of my favorite tracks from Nuyorican Soul, and I am a big fan of Maysa’s “All My Life” album as evident by What About Our Love? Along with Shola, Jamiroquai and the others, this is a little something that will please acid jazz fans.
From Side Effect to Incognito, from Jhelisa to US3, from D-Influence to Najee – and all points in between.
