Every week I attempt to sample new music, this week’s picks are Joss Stone and Van Hunt.
I was flipping channels and stopped on this cute guy singing on the Wayne Brady Show, a show I otherwise do not watch. Although I only stopped to stare at the eye candy for a second, I stayed after being pulled in by his mid-70 sound. He took me back to Curtis Mayfield. Admittedly I am not as familiar with the late great CM as I should be, but one thing I or anyone could not miss is his sound. Van Hunt is the rebirth of theat sound.
In “Seconds of Pleasure” he gives you inside track of love. Letting you know it only takes those seconds of treasure to keep you concumed. For some of us we would rather just be “Dust” blown away. Van Hunt has an album full of soulful love songs that are perfect for mellow bass grooving meditation time. Start with track one and you’ll stay to track 12. Along the way experience Lenny Kravitz in his hayday. Curtis Mayfield and even Betty Wright, its all for the expanision of art, its all for the “Highlights”.
This cd is a great buy.
