Welcome to the Science of Soul, I would like to take this chance to wish you a merry Christmas, I trust you had plenty turkey and mistletoe.

Ok ....  its music time! - please share the gift of music and tell-a-friend to tell-another-friend all about The Science Of Soul.

Final Thanks Giving Soul Jam

Ty Causey
Welcome to this weeks Science of Soul, first-off  'thank you' to Dave Thomas for filling in for me on Black Country Radio over the past two weeks, he did a great job!
The Featured Album this week comes from the man who puts Fort Wayne, Indiana on the Soul map, that's Mr Ty Causey. His new set "God Is Love" is a collection of original Gospel tunes written by himself and this gives you a real insight into this mans character, music truly is his life. I got a chance to catch his stage show last week, he had a packed house 'steppin' and groovin'', no one left that venue disappointed that's for sure.  His album is widely available from all the usual outlets cdBaby & Amazon, etc.

Chuck + Wilton Crump
It was great to be at the final Thanksgiving Soul Jam held at the Star Plaza in Merriville last Month, and what a show that was! I ran in to so many friends it was amazing. So with that in mind I thought I would share that with you by way of the songs I was privileged hear at the live concert. The showstoppers for me were The Manhattans, I gotta say; 'Gerald Alston never disappoints' he bought the house down. It was great spending a couple of days with my Detroit family Charles & Rose Davis we had a blast as it always is. My new music today comes from the legendary Ohio Players and Marc Staggers' wonderful version of the Motown classic "This Old Heart Of Mine" but It's predominantly old school this week.

Marvin Ruffin R.I.P.

Late Marvin (pic via Steve Calloway)
Thanks for stopping by this weeks show because I have current releases from Ms Jayna Blackwell, who's new album is due early in the new year, plus I'll will be dipping into the latest sets from Will Downing and Calvin Richardson, plus and I just thought I would refresh your mind on the recent products from Freddie Jackson and Todd B.

I want to take a moment and pay tribute to my long time friend and late night talking buddy Marvin Ruffin who sadly passed last week. He was first cousin to David & Jimmy Ruffin. Marvin's career never reached those heights in terms of recorded output and world wide fame but he was respected by all who knew him and his live shows took him around the world. Over the years he lived and performed in Japan, Spain, the UK, and countless other countries and was always a guy who pulled the crowds. You knew you could rely on Marvin for an entertaining show and on a personal level Marvin was a good and trusted friend who I will miss. Though we didn't get to see each other so much over the last couple of years we never lost touch, our last time together was in fact in Detroit at the Charles Wright museum. Marvin  left way to soon and I'm gonna miss those late night chats, picking up the phone and hearing that Ruffin tone say "heyyyyyyy" and that laugh that would light up a room. Marvin was laid to rest in his home town of Detroit on Monday November 13th., be at peace my brother until we meet again. Thanks for the smiles and memories, gonna miss you!

I will be away in the States for the next couple of weeks, but things will be back to normal on my return.

Coriology

Welcome and thank you for stopping by the Science of Soul website. On this weeks show I'll be  featuring "Catchin' Feelings" the latest album from Coriology, it's a real smooth and soulful set that I think you will enjoy. The single from the album "Be With You" has proved to be a great showcase for the man's style. Other newbies this week come from the lovely Ms Donna Allen and I think this track will propel Donna to the next level. Southern soul man Mo'B keeps churning out great music with his new single being no exception, the more I hear it the better it sounds.

Everyone's favourite Uncle, Uncle Wayne is back with his latest single "Somewhere"  being very well received and not hard to see why. Also taking a quick dip into Kenny Lattimore's new set; "Vunerable," which is sure to keep Kenny pretty Busy. Ledisi is also back with a new album "Let Love Rule" and it's only right and fitting that I take a peak. Old skool folks listen out for Esther Phillips' killer version of the Originals classic "Baby I'm For Real," not fair to compare it as is one of my all time favourite recordings, but it's an amazing version none the less. OK, it's music time, sit back, relax and enjoy.

Corioligy biography:-
At the corner where music intersects with jazz, soul, pop & rock, you will meet an artist that sets a signature trend of music; Coriology. His artistic approach to music has gained the attention and respect of many audiences. His compositions allow the ear to be hypnotized and the mind to expand by his lyrical content.  Coriology’s musicianship speaks loudly, but to meet him is a gentle experience. His calm, humble nature originates from his small town roots of Texarkana, Arkansas where he was raised. Playing piano and organ in church nurtured and honed his skills; and once opportunity met destiny, his music began to take him on a journey that has afforded him the experiences of performing along-side legendary artists such as Kirk Franklin, Stephanie Mills, Richard Smallwood, Mariah Carey & Monica just to name a few.  Now in Atlanta Georgia, Coriology begins a new chapter with his debut solo album Coriology101 currently available on iTunes and wherever digital music is sold. God has favored Coriology with the chemistry to create some of the best music of our time.

Irene Renee's biography:
Recently, working with phenomenal musicians, producers, and developing a love for writing, Ms. Irene Renee decided to embark upon a journey to independently produce and release her debut album, aptly entitled, Serendipitous Experience. Her dynamic melding of sultry and earthy mixed with a bit of sweet and sexy is incredibly appealing; the album’s lyrical content coupled with its melodic assortment evoke genuine reactions in her listeners: they love it; they get it! Her music promotes reflection, inspiration, and movement. She has been compared to singers like Toni Braxton, Jill Scott, Cassandra Wilson, and Anita Baker and complimented by accomplished artists, including Cissy Houston and Luther Vandross.

Stars On Broadway

Ble'z
It's Science of Soul time and thank you for stopping by. I am sure you know I have been featuring the new album from Lovebeams Productions over the last few months, well the main man behind Lovebeams is Mr Dwayne Palmer, D contacted me a couple of weeks back to say they now had hard copies of the album "Can We" and he had put one in the mail for me, the package arrived and when I opened it there was 2 cds "Can We" and an album from 2001 titled "Stars On Broadway" well I have to confess I didn't rush to open that one, I was expecting the usual Broadway show tunes ..... was I wrong it's packed with great tracks written by Dwayne and performed by top notch vocalists, to say I impressed is an understatement so this week instead of featuring a new release album I will be playing 3 tracks from this set. It is still available for down load from cdBaby and it's truly worth the investment. I hope you enjoy the tracks as much as I did.

I have new music this week from Atlanta based Todd B plus the current hits from Bigg Robb who's album "Born To Do This" is currently Number 1 on the Southern Soul Chart, and the new release from Ble'z, whos's a young lady out of Maryland.

The Intrigues


Thanks for stopping by this weeks Science of Soul, today on the show I will be featuring the latest Soul Junction label release from Philly legends The Intrigues, who were best remembered for there 60's classic "In A Moment." Their latest project is a collection of tracks that until now were laying in the vaults, but the Soul Junction guys have done it yet again, they remastered and packaged them into a new album called "If The Shoe Fits," I think these tracks will have a wide appeal for lovers of quality soul. It will be available in both vinyl and CD formats, these are definitely for the collectors, so don't miss out!

Stan Mosley is getting rave revues on his release of the Philly classic "Ain't No Stopping Us" remember we played it a couple of weeks back, but now I wanna remind you just how good it is, look out for a new album from Stan soon and  I will keep you updated. UK soul man Carvalho is back with a new track "Elevate" and is a quality release from the EP of the same name. I am expecting big things from this guy in the future. 

SOS listener June
The lovely Ms Gina Carey is back her new single its a very personal statement that is very relevant to her life at this point. her husband the renowned guitarist John Carey is battling with cancer right now, and "Fight" is an inspiring observation of the challenges they face. We wish John a speedy recovery because he is truly one of the industries nice guys. I will be 'album tracking' with Boney James, Ty Causey plus the new hit from Cupid entitled "A Woman Like Me", added to them the usual mix of old school classics, even two tracks from the Four Tops that I had completely forgotten (thank you to UK listener June McMenamin for reminding me) OK sit back relax enjoy the music.

The Intrigues biography
The Intrigues were a slick trio that served up funky Philly soul during the early '70s. Their biggest hit in 1969 on the Yew label, "In a Moment," was slickly arranged and produced by Bobby Martin and Thom Bell, although its flip, "Scotchman Rock," was a rocking throwback to simpler times. The Intrigues' lush 1971 hit on Yew, "The Language of Love," was co-produced by Van McCoy. After an extended absence from the R&B charts, the trio re-emerged from the shadows in 1985 with "Fly Girl."

On The Real Side #7

Thanks for stopping by because there's lots of new music this week, I'm still trying to play catch-up and I'm getting there very slowly ... Bigg Robb is back with a new single and album "Born To Do This" and I have the lead single "Good Thang," also a new track from Stan Mosley's Philly Sessions, and it's a great version of the Philly classic "Ain't No Stopping Us Now", look out for more great new music from Stan he as been busy in the studios and it's sounding great.


J Barnes Remington

J Barnes Remington is back with a great new single "Supreme Party Groove" 'JBR' is another who never disappoints, he is a quality Soulman.

Look out for new singles from Carl Sims and J L Smith. Featured Album this week is the latest volume of the "Soul On The Real Side #7," and it's jam-packed with feel good classics, so I couldn't resist sneaking a few on the playlist, now sit back and enjoy, there is sure to be some thing you like.
