Carlton Jumel Smith

Thanks for stopping by this weeks Science of Soul today, the Featured Album this week comes Carlton Jumel Smith , titled "1634 Lexington Avenue", and it's a real throw-back in style and Carlton has captured a sound, and yet still remains fresh and as put his stamp on. Other new releases this week come from Orlando, Fla., Soulman Tea_L, just to prove there is more to Orlando than Mickey Mouse, lol. There is also new music from Angie Stone, Alton Cooley, Ronnie Bell and from his forthcoming album I have the lead track, " I See Love" from Cornell by C.C. Carter.

I mentioned last week about Eddie Holman's UK appearance at Central Hall in Liverpool tickets are going very fast so if you plan on going I would recommend get your tickets very soon. For the old skool folks there is a nice chunk of Philly soul from Jean Carne, Sharon Paige and David Ebo so sit back relax and enjoy...everyday is a soul day.

RIP - Al McKenzie
Welcome to this weeks Science of Soul, I'm very sad to report the passing of long time friend Al McKenzie who worked over the years as music director for pretty much every major act in Detroit. Al was the kind of guy who was loved and respected by everyone he worked with - we send our deepest sympathy to his family and friends he will be truly missed. This weeks Science of Soul is dedicated to the memory of Al, Detroit will be a sadder place without him.

I'm feeling in an Old Skool mood this week so there are lots of classic tunes you might not have heard in awhile. Representing the new music I have The Night Affair Band out of South Carolina, The HamilTones and Con-Funk-Shun front man Felton Pilate. Great news if your UK based the great Eddie Holman is set to appear in Liverpool in September these will be shows not to miss check out the flyer for details. Ok its music time sit back and enjoy...

Tony Lindsay

Thanks for stopping by this weeks Science of Soul, the Featured Album this week came out last year, but it's being re-promoted just in case you missed it, a polished set from former Santana lead singer Tony Lindsay, and is highly recommended, titled  "Something Beautiful" is one of those albums that just gets better the more you hear it.
