In the realm of soul singers who also dabble in gospel and folk, Denai Moore inspires respect. The Jamaican-born Londoner is a real chameleon who always keeps a personal touch in her voice. This voice is incidentally the gem of We Used To Bloom. When she signed at SBTRKT (like her compatriot Sampha, by the way), Moore sent the message across that she intended to be at the center stage of the contemporary British soul scene. This second album, perfectly handled in its style and substance, doesn’t reveal all of its secrets on the first listen. It takes some time to appreciate the outline of these beautifully lifted songs and intoxicating melodies. There’s a real simplicity in Denai Moore’s work that deserves our attention and benevolence. But once the chest is open, the treasure is well and truly there. © CM/Qobuz

Curtis Mayfield, Black Music Matters

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.

Verve Records, the sound of America

Norman Granz hit the nail on the head when he defined his label as “the sound of America”. Admittedly, it was last century. And granted, it mainly just stuck to jazz. But even today, with a catalogue including Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans, Lester Young, Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson and countless others, Verve represents one of the most important musical ventures of the twentieth century.

Blaxploitation, the predecessor of "Black Panther"

More than 45 years before the success of the "Black Panther" movie, Hollywood targeted the Afro-American community by providing them with customized heroes. From "Shaft" to "Super Fly" and passing by "Blacula", the Blaxploitation offered at the time thrillers, comedies and even vampire movies, and worth noting, the music contained a few groovy 70s gems...
