Paul's first album for Philadelphia International was straight club jazz; sales were slow. This time, Gamble & Huff gave Paul material strong enough to make his sophomore release a viable commercial entity. "Brown Baby's" speaks of people of color making their parents and others proud. "I'm Just a Prisoner" is real, but would have been better served without the string section. It's a stark depiction about a man who has served five years and is contemplating his future. It is about the unsettling fact that he's just a prisoner. Its chilling chorus tells it all -- "The cell is cold as hell, you'll never get use to the smell, my bed is hard as wood, I got to fight to keep my manhood," the riveting saga doesn't just end, the fade is lengthy, and features a dejected Paul woefully mourning the conditions, the situation, and the turmoil of prison life. He sounds believable and frustrated belting out "Me & Mrs. Jones," a classic that many relate to, and those who don't have no problem being down with the passionate singing and clawing lyrics describing the unapologetic infidelity. His "It's Too Late" is a fine rendition of Carole King's classic. You might not recognize "Let's Stay Together," popularized by Al Green. Paul does it it MOR/Jazz style, with a lot of improvising before crooning the original lyrics. It shows versatility, but it's unlikely that people who bought Green's "Jones" appreciated it. A version of Elton John's "Your Song" introduced the Brit to fans of soul music. Vince Montana's magical vibes punctuate the rhythm, which turns into a lightweight gospel revival. "Am I Black Enough for You" fit in with the times of overt black consciousness, a social message moved along by a perky bongo and clavinet-dominated beat, and well-spaced, brassy horn hits. A too staid "I'm Gonna Make It This Time," co-written by Bunny Sigler, marked Paul's second adventure in urban club jazz on 360 Degrees; this one has bite, and Billy sings it with fire.

Daft Punk, nichts mehr hinzuzufügen?

Acht Jahre nach Random Access Memories, das das künstlerische Konzept des 18 Jahre zuvor erschienenen Homework weiterführt, machen Daft Punk Schluss. Als ob nach diesem letzten Album, dem Höhepunkt einer Karriere in Form einer Hommage an die Popkultur der 1970er und 1980er Jahre, keine Neuerfindung mehr möglich wäre…

Neo-Soul in 10 Alben

Mitte der 90er Jahre, als der Hip-Hop sein goldenes Zeitalter erlebte, begann auch der Soul seine Revolution. Mit Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Jill Scott und einigen anderen gewinnt das Genre die Klasse, Nüchternheit und Raffinesse zurück, die die Alben von Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield oder Roberta Flack belebt haben. Nach den Jahren der ultrakommerziellen sirupartigen R&B-Herrschaft belebt der Neo-Soul (oder auch Nu-Soul), der viel mehr Underground war, die Flamme des ursprünglichen Soul, in seinen Arrangements wie in seinen Texten. Eine kleine aber sehr einflussreiche Bewegung.

Motown, der Sound des jungen Amerika

Das von Berry Gordy gegründete Label feiert bald seinen 60. Geburtstag und ist nach wie vor für Pop und Soul die Referenz schlechthin. Eine Hitfabrik mit Arbeitern wie Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Rick James oder den Temptations…
