It's Science of Soul time once again and in honour of their recent UK appearance, this weeks show starts and ends with The Whispers, I got a chance to catch their show in Birmingham, not the most ideal venue to stage such a show, The O2 Academy, it's pretty much a student type venue but none the less it was a privilege to see the guys, all-be-it without Nicholas Caldwell who is still recovering from recent surgery. The set list was squarely aimed at the dance floor with much less emphasis on there 'classic ballads', that are the staple of their USA concerts and more to my tastes. For me The Whispers will always be on of the great 'slow jam' groups of the 70s and 80s. Meli'sa Morgan was also in the show, and I have to say she was very very impressive, really enjoyed her set and just had to include the stand out track "Do Me Baby"  this week.

Victor Willis
The Featured Artist today is Chicago soulman, Theo Huff , he's very much a star on the rise, two tracks from his forthcoming project for you. Thanks to my good friend Stan Moseley for hooking us up. The 'surprise package of the week' comes from Victor Willis ... WHO? you might say !!!!!! well cast your mind back to the Village People he was a lead singer on there massive hits like "YMCA" etc, but don't let it put you off  ..  your gonna be pleasantly surprised. Other new music from UK based gospel artist Carole Felice who's debut CD; "Dwelling Place" is very African in style overall, but for me the stand out cut is "Have Your Way," a beautiful mellow arrangement that really shows the young lady's vocal range. Carole is a name to watch out for. Also music from Kejam featuring Chanel and London's Rare Groove favorite Don E to round-out this weeks new music.
Enough chat from me, pour your self a glass of wine, close the blinds... because it's soul time!
