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.

Family Affair Sly & The Family Stone

The production on this one has always fascinated me. Love the underwater/overdub sound of the vocals and the funky percussion that sounds as if they recorded it in Sly's bathtub. Funky all the way around.

Have Fun Again Diana Ross

Love the production on this Diana Ross album. Motown pres. Berry Gordy had the Nile Rogers/Bernard Edwards produced tracks polished for the official release of diana. Payed off. The deluxe edition has the original versions as well the subsequent clean-ups on it - as well as some extended additional Ross tracks, including a Supremes medley.
