It's Science of Soul time once again and I have got some great music for you this week. Angela Johnson's latest offering is getting great reviews everywhere and its not hard to see why, "Naturally Me" I feel her most accomplished album to date. I just had to share it with you and I will also be dipping into the latest sets by Sir Charles Jones, Gwendolyn Collins, Lacee and Ty Juan. I feel its important that we promote new music along side the classics that we have grown up with - Talking of classics Marvin Gaye's album from way back in the day "Romantically Yours" is full of great music, have included a track from that album just to remind you how great Marvin was.
Angela Johnson Biography:
It was Summer of 2003. Thirty years earlier urban radio had been the delivery vehicle for one of the most creative periods of modern music, with artists ranging from Al Green to Donny Hathaway to Aretha Franklin delivering culture changing songs, both lyrically compelling and musically superb. Now those same stations seemed obsessed with the trivial and the profane. 50 Cent was rapping "In Da Club" while Nelly was taking his clothes off in "Hot In Herre." And the broadcasters who were once a unifying force for a generation were now aimed squarely at the lowest common denominator. The situation was so dire that at our website, SoulTracks.com, we had pretty much settled on becoming an "oldies" community, eternally focusing on the same artists and songs that provided the foundation for soul music three decades earlier. - See more at:
