very enjoyable album.
‘Music For Your Soul’ , ‘Whatever’ are nice catchy mid tempo
songs, Chris Walker co-wrote, produced and duets on the mid
tempo R&B/Soul ‘Down With Me’. ‘Spirit 222’ has a different
vibe, it features guitarist Chieli Minnuci and former Incognito
percussionist Thomas Dyani Akuru. It starts off slowly for three
minutes then builds into an uplifting groove. ‘Make Sure You’re
Sure’ is nice laid back jazzy version of the Stevie Wonder song.
‘Just Stay’ Is a slow jam ft Dawn Tallman on background vocals. ‘I
Don’t Mind’ is a good upper mid tempo groover co-wriiten and
produced by Bluey and Damon Bennett who also plays
keyboards and flute. ‘Runnin From Myself’ is an uptempo groove
ft Tim Stewart on guitar and bass. Frank Mc Comb produced,
co-wrote, plays keyboards and sings with Maysa on the excellent
uptempo ‘His Love’. Mike City produced and wrote the soulful
House groover ‘I Wanna Believe’
Noel Gourdin duets on the slow jam ‘Love Life’. Kirk Whalum
plays sax on the gospel ‘Lord I Thank You’ and there is a good
version of ‘You Know How To Love Me’. Maysa’s velvet vocals
are the real highlight of this varied album, which will appeal to
her many fans.
