Marvin Ruffin R.I.P.

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.

Marvin Ruffin  interview (sorry part one has gone missing)



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.
