Roy Hargrove

 

rh-factor-hard-groove.jpg roy-hardgrove-hard-groove.jpgThis is truly for the grown and sexy! So…if you’re grown, but not sexy this may not be for you and if you’re sexy, but not grown, this definitely is not for you! Roy Hargrove hits the world heavy with his RH Factor Projects. Just when you thought jazz was for your parents, Roy came through and dropped “The RH Factor: Hard Groove” and “The RH Factor: Distractions.” With guest like Common, Erykah Badu, Q-Tip, D’Angelo, Anthony Hamilton, Me’Shell Ndegeocello, Renee Neufville, etc., how could Roy miss? He doesn’t, he hits the ball right out of the park with the RH Factor projects. The RH Factor’s are soulful, spiritual, moving, grooving, and just plain jazzy. These are the CD’s you play when your girls or boys are over for a night of tomfoolery. These are the CD’s you play when you wanna know why you’re feeling that certain brotha or that certain sistsh. These are just the CD’s. Now while Hard Groove and Distractions dropped a couple of years ago, 2003 and 2006 respectively, I haven’t really heard many people talk about either of the projects, then or now. So…I’m diggin in my crates and pulling out these gems. My soul family, bling yourself out with these trinkets!

  1. Any special reason why you say Roy “Hardgrove” instead of “Hargrove,” his real name? Just curious. Thanks for digging out the music.

  2. Well…Ms Webster, there is no special reason with the exception that I was really tired when I wrote the post and it should be “Hardgrove” instead of Hargrove, as we all know Mr. Hargrove does make a HARD GROOVE with his music.
    Thanks for the shout out. I stand corrected. Keep supporting and I’ll keep diggin in the crates.
    C…

  3. I’ve been a fan of Roy from back in the day when he was playing the Vanguard with Cyrus Chestnut and Big Ron on the sax.

    I have to say that with the “RH Factor” he has out done himself. Now adding Renee to mix with her sultry voice and sweet-dark-chocolate looks gives a brotha an earful and diabetes….
