Jose James is bringing back the great soul music of the sixties. With Lean On Me, his fifth album on the label Blue Note, the singer from Minneapolis pays tribute to Bill Withers. This album reiterates the influence that the big names of mythical jazz and soul have had on the artist, who sang the tracks of a certain Billie Holiday back in 2015… Despite the many musical paths he could’ve taken, James remains a faithful servant to the masters of soul, doing his duty of remembrance through his covers. Recorded in Capitol Records’ famous Studio B, he surrounded himself with big names: Pino Palladino on bass, Brad Allen Williams on the guitar, Kris Bowers on keyboard and Nate Smith on drums, a dream team with whom the soul man lays himself bare. With vintage groove and power, his warm voice evokes a bygone era and blends erotically with the piano chords of Lean On Me. Lovely Day’s funky soul doesn’t phase him either, but if there’s an area in which he truly excels, it’s on the sugary and slightly acoustic southern soul track: Hello Like Before. Watch out for hot flushes! Switching between tradition and modernity, each track is a surprise. Whether it’s brilliant musical improvisation you’re looking for (Just The Two of Us) or full funk (Better Off Dead) − here’s a guru who can hypnotise you in just a few seconds! © Anna Coluthe/Qobuz

Kandace Springs is a reincarnation of the great soul divas. Divine beauty, a charming name, since she released her first album, all eyes have been on this young woman. Soul Eyes, released on Blue Note in 2014, saw her float away into a sublime cloud of soul-jazz with pop highlights. Four years later, she is attracting attention with a full different creation, named Indigo. Roberta Flack, Luther Vandross, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone are just a few names of her childhood influences, names that are still casting their spell over her performances. A warm timbre, a supple and delicate diction that goes hand in hand with her mastery of the piano, Indigo is a stunning mix of covers and original pieces written by Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken. The album opens on the pop-romantic overture Don't Need The Real Thing; funk airs follow on People Make The World Go 'Round and a jazzy instrumental on Unsophisticated: Springs seems unsure about where to really let her voice take off, but it works! She is testing out her capacities and limits in some contradictory registers. Fix Me even ventures into classical, with a mix of Prélude opus 28 n°4 by Chopin, imitation Gainsbourg and a more soulful Jane B sound. It's an unexpected mix but it is all brought together marvellously by the smoke timbre of this winning singer. © Anna Coluthe/Qobuz

Session musicians, born tour performers or just “cats that were looked over, but they're bad!, to borrow the words of their leader, Chris Dave. That’s what these Drumhedz are. Just to give you an idea, Chris Dave was the drummer of Adele, Justin Bieber, Dolly Parton, D’Angelo, Sonny Rollins and A Tribe Called Quest. Just six names randomly picked to show the width of the guy’s experience… But this time, the gang comes out of the shadows to feel the bright lights on their face. Their album is first and foremost a no man’s land where the notion of genre isn’t in use anymore, where elements of funk, soul, gospel, hip-hop and jazz are blended until they become undistinguishable and form a solid groove mass without actually being a lackluster jam session. Among the fifty or so musicians that compose these Drumhedz, you’ll find notably Pino Palladino (bass), Isaiah Sharkey (guitar), Cleo "Pookie" Sample (keyboard), Sir Darryl Farris (vocals), Keyon Harrold (sax), but also James Poyser (The Roots), Stokley Williams (Mint Condition) and Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), not forgetting Anderson .Paak, Bilal, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Phonte Coleman. And the result—as groovy as can be—is just like this fusion of names: a fusion of rhythmically heavy sounds in which no one tries to take all the credit. It’s some pure groove. © MD/Qobuz

A drummer in a league of his own, a musician with an immeasurable refinement and a virtuosic composer - one day we’ll run out of superlatives to describe Brian Blade. Listening to his music while watching him navigate his drum with nimble fingers is a unique experience. It’s hardly surprising that Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Kenny Garrett, Norah Jones, Daniel Lanois, Joni Mitchell, Wayne Shorter, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris have all come to offer their services over the years… But since the end of the ‘90s, Blade has often returned to a source that’s fully his own: the Fellowship Band. Alongside Jon Cowherd on piano, Chris Thomas on double bass, and the brass instruments of Myron Walden and Melvin Butler, here we find a jazz completely other. A sound rooted in gospel, blues and folk that devotes itself to telling stories and histories. The fifth album from Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band scrolls through melodies that couldn’t be more evocative. In just over half an hour, Body & Shadow intertwines bodies and shadows to the sound of highly poetic jazz. The guitarist Dave Devine is invited along to colour a few sequences while Blade and his band apply themselves to blurring the boundaries between genres. Real musical enchantment. © MZ/Qobuz

It is important to realize that Norah Jones is not just a famous persona waving from the cover of a glossy magazine, or simply “a pretty face". The truth is far deeper... Day Breaks is further evidence of her undeniable talent, but also of a tangible artistic evolution. Mixing beautiful original compositions with a sprinkling of great classics (Horace Silver, Neil Young and Duke Ellington), the sixth album from the New Yorker who grew up in Texas brings her many and diverse passions together in one place.  Always lying within the realms of jazz, soul, pop and folk, it is her sincere and visceral love for the former that inhabits this stylish album, which doesn't dwell in the past for a single second. Over the years, the piano (much like her vocals) have toggled between nonchalance and pugnacity. Saxophonist Wayne Shorter, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade are among the accomplices invited to the party here, and the experience of those involved is truly telling. Somehow, Day Breaks manages to see eye to eye with Come Away With Me, her first disc released back in 2002, and one that propelled her to the top of the charts. This 2016 vintage is even more structured than previous efforts. Mastered to perfection, the latest effort serves to epitomize the grace and beauty of this timeless artist. © MZ / Qobuz
