Blu Mitchell

Thank you for visiting The Science of Soul, my Featured Album this week comes from Blu Mitchell, entitled "Blu Eyed Soul". Los Angeles based singer has delivered a very polished set with some great collaborations and quality productions. The album as been out a few months but as gone relatively unnoticed so I thought I would bring it to your attention just in case you had missed it. There is other new music this week including the multi talented Gina Carey her single "Let Me Know" is one of my favourites from her. Another L.A. based lady and R&B Hall Of Fame inductee Ms Rena Scott has just released her version of Aretha Franklin's classic "Until You Come Back To Me" and I must say she as done a great job.

Late Joe Jackson
There is also new music from Peabo Bryson and The Temptations have a new album "All The
Time" not one of there best in my opinion but I do like "Still Feel Like Your Man". It seems every week we lose a music legend, this time it's Joe Jackson who's vision for his family became a reality, he honed their talent in that small house in Gary, Indiana, but I am sure he could never have foreseen the impact they would have on the music world, not just in the States but globally. I have included 3 of my personal favourites from them to show respect for the legacy that Joe Jackson founded. Ok it's music time sit back and enjoy and please share with a friend.

Blu Mitchell biography:
This dynamic man is certainly no apprentice to the music trade. BLU, a Los Angeles aborigine, graced the industry with his presence in his 1995 debut Motown Records project entitled, Out of the Blu, spotlighting the hit single, 'Hide & Go Get It' (featuring remixes with both Oakland-based Tony Toni Tone and rapper E-40) produced by Dwayne Wiggins. On tour, BLU achieved fame while performing the national anthem at the 1997 Kentucky Derby opening and in touring major U.S. cities, working with industry trend setters including Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Will Downing, Phil Perry, Michael Bolton, Randy Jackson, New Kids on the Block, Steve Perry and Avant…to name a few.

He appeared in the play, Love in the Nick of Tyme, written by David E. Talbert and starring Morris Chestnut. Love in the Nick of Tyme toured across the United States as one of the highest-grossing plays of 2007. This play marked BLU’s acting debut, along with gracing fans with his show-stopping vocal performances. After wrapping up the tour, BLU appeared in the movie, First Sunday, directed by David E. Talbert starring Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan and Katt Williams. He has also appeared in the stage productions of Soul Kitten Cabaret with Fantasia, Faith Evans and Nicci Gilbert as well as King Solomon Lives with Richard Brooks. In addition, BLU has songs featured in the following feature films: Love For Sale (2008), He’s Mine Not Yours (2011), 24 Hour Love (2013), Stock Option (2015), and Couple's Night (2017)

BLU considers his newest album, Blu Eyed Soul, to be a part of his musical legacy. From writing to producing to A&R to promoting, has has all hands in! He knows that he took a long time to drop a second record, but rest assured he plans to keep them rolling from now on. www.blumitchell.com
