'Jin Jin' Reeves

The Science of Soul is back live this week after my one week break, I am sure anyone who knows me will know I had a great time with Prince Phillip Mitchell, the guy is amazing, had to sneak a track onto this weeks show. The Featured Artist this week is a little different, the album dates back to 2008, entitled "Living Proof" by Jennifer 'Jin Jin' Reeves. This is a young lady from Detroit who now resides and works in Las Vegas, Nevada. The album as only just come to my attention, so it's new to me ... it's sooooo good I have to share it with you.

The new music this week comes from Gospel legend in the making Ms Donna Allen, who's album "I'm Your Bride" is pretty special, if you like your Gospel with a contemporary groove this is the lady for you.  More tracks from this set coming over the next few weeks. My good friend Kenneth Hall as just sent me the latest outing by rising star Rashaad, titled: "If You Leave," a national distribution deal has just been secured for this track. I think this is  gonna launch this young man big time, they call him the New Prince of Soul, a bold statement I know but this guy has the talent to back it.

The Dramatics are back in the studio, as you may be aware there are two groups with the Dramatics' name; one featuring L J Reynolds who are cleaning up on the live circuit, and one fronted by Willie Ford who's one of the all time great bass singers. Such a shame that LJ and Willie could not combine forces -  as a life long Dramatics fan I love them both. This new track comes from Willie's group and is a taster from there upcoming album, gotta say they are sounding great, the track will be available on UK based Soul Junction records very soon. In this weeks video my good friend Drew Shultz talks to George Clinton, a must view (bottom of blog).

Lots more new music scattered around the show plus all the classics 'cus that's how we do it on the Science of Soul ... sit back enjoy..
