The Pimps of Joytime

October 26, 2007

Never mind the group’s name, this is one of the “MUST HAVE” CD’s of the year! “High Steppin,” is just that, High Steppin… Like I said, I was on a long road trip and right when I was about to get tired, I popped this CD in and drove for the next couple of hours; […]

Will Downing

October 26, 2007

Will is back family. The anticipated “After Tonight” will drop 10/30. It’s all Will-deep, sexy, soul voice we are all used to. I gotta say however, I wasn’t blown away. It’s not like I had to listen to it over and over again. It was simply a lovely walk in th park on a nice […]

Don’t Call It a Come Back

October 20, 2007

They’ve been here for years! The smash dynamic duo Zhane (we all know how to pronounce it) may not be that premium twosome any longer, but that hasn’t stop them from being oversized on their own. Group members Renee Neufville and Jean Baylor (a.k.a. Jean Norris) have been laying down their own brand of good. […]

6 Degrees of Separation

October 16, 2007

Ok family, I don’t know if it’s really 6 degrees of separation, more like 3 or 4, but I do know there is still something to be said for backup singers really being as talented as the featured artist/s. Folla me now… Let’s see, you have Lady Jill Scott, who pens one of the hottest […]

Happy Birthday E-Bird
