The Sunday Soul Affair, 12/05/13

The Blue-in-Green invasion was in full force last Sunday thanks to Curly CJ heading off for the weekend.  4 hours with a bag load of tunes and a microphone – it made Sunday morning twice as good as it normally is!  (I actually wasn’t available the week before so CJ actually stood in for me – if my maths is correct then that marks the first show I missed in almost exactly two years!  If that doesn’t show dedication then I don’t know what does :).)

The playlists for our shows can be found as usual on the Starpoint Radio forums but our stand-in Sunday Soul Affair play list can be found below:

Also, thanks to a recent batch of CD purchases, future shows will also have the pleasure of being blessed by brand new music from the following:

‘Sun’ by Mario Biondi.  The brand new album by Italian’s leading soul singer (I think that’s a fair comment to make) – the man whose voice sounds like a cross between Mark Murphy and Barry White has hooked up with a dream team of classic soul artists and musicians: as if featured vocalists including Al Jarreau, Chaka Khan, Leon Ware and Omar weren’t enough, the project has also received significant input from Incognito’s Bluey (who just seems to be like an unstoppable music-making force at the moment – including last year’s Incognito album, his contributions to Khari Cabral Simmons’s ‘Clementine Sun’, the Mario Biondi album, and this year’s release of his debut solo – I don’t see how the man has the time to tie his own shoelaces let alone continually release music.)

‘The Secret Life of Us’ by Joey Negro & The Sunburst Band.  The British DJ and music producer, Joey Negro, returns with – if my info is correct – the fourth album by The Sunburst Band, which oozes summer appeal.  It’s vibrant, eclectic and awesomely good fun, and features a bevy of incredible vocalists including Angela Johnson and one Pete Simpson, who I’m really keen to get more music from:  Pete Simpson made two vocal contributions to the Shuya Okino ‘Destiny’ album in 2011 – compulsory purchase! – and also has an album release with Domu entitled ‘Look A Little Further’ (another album very much worth your money).

Hopefully, you’ll all be tuning in to Starpoint Radio  on a Sunday morning to plays from the above and lots more else.
