Heads up!

I’ve been away for a while working on two more reviews for BlackGrooves.org.  After they gave me the top spot on last month’s page for my Roots Review,  I got a hold of some fun projects this time: the new lil Wayne release and a new documentary about Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions.  BlackGrooves will post their July-August issue sometime next week.  Their page is not equipped for comments at this point, but feel free to hit the comments here if you’d like to leave feedback.

Heads up: BlackGrooves

Thanks to the online periodical blackgrooves.org, I just discovered new artist Kevin Michael. His (still fairly new) CD features collaborations with Lupe Fiasco, Wyclef Jean, Q-Tip, and Akil Dasan. On the heels of John Legend’s recent success, this R&B crooner is going to look at first glance like he’s posing to ride that wave. But listen carefully:

Yes, Michael draws on the new-soul/acoustic r&b movement, but he’s developing sounds and relationships of his own as well…

Look for my review of Erykah Badu‘s new CD in next month’s issue of BlackGrooves.
