What (Soul/R&B) Are You Listening To Right Now?
 
Post whatever soul/R&B music has intrigued you lately.

This track just came on my shuffle -

Get Off - Patrice Rushen

Now (1984, Elektra)

Pianist, Rushen, hasn't done a straight ahead R&B album in decades. But this is a good one. Laid-back, soft funk R&B with some jazz overtones on the slow tracks. Not sure if she'll ever return to the format after her disenchantment with the hit-centered nature of the pop music world. But she has great musical chops and then some.

Toni Braxton, Toni Braxton (1993, LaFace/Arista) YT Playlist

Secrets is my favorite from Braxton but this what you might have expected from a label looking to break through with a singer that would have popular R&B appeal. She'd get more interesting as she matured, thankfully. Not a bad throwback, though. Good to hear again.

...

Did you know that Will Smith sampled her "Forget me nots" for "Men in Black"?

I recently "discovered" this song:

Oliver Cheatham - Get Down Saturday Night (1983)



And I like it. :)

Soul and other parts of pop culture are the few things Americans can be proud of. :)

:) Jazz, Baseball, The Constitution...
Lots to admire about America.

Yeah, Forget Me Nots has been sampled many times. Rushen is known for having produced some great ones.
