Tonight's featured artisit is N'Dea Davenport, one of the original members of the Brand New Heavies. I'll showcase her versatility and verve from the cds The Brand New Heavies and her self entitiled release N'Dea Davenport.

Nat King Cole is channeled by new artists on Re: Generations; an irregular but loving and listen-able homage. The cd has Natalie and Dad together again. Some good things don't end! Listen and hit me back with your thoughts.

Electronica and symphonic orchestration flow through Jeff Mills on Blue Potential. The two disk set features live recordings with Jeff and the Montpellier Philharmonic Orchestra, and a disk with interviews, a concert, documentary and tutorial.

Donna Summer and Marvin Gaye add to the overall flavor of Afrotainment with a deeper view inside: Donna's country twangings  on Crayons reveal a playful, whimsical side, whereas Marvin bares all in and with evocative whispers, sighs and tuneful swoons. He is just as enticing as you dreamed. The special release Vulnerable is on the Motown label, released in 1997.

(Maya) Ayam Marches Right Up to You again via her cd...thank GOD she left it...more from her coming. Look for her around town. She should be playing somewhere SOOOOON! Didjagitthe "hinthinthint", Ayam...?
