John Legend hits us with a new rendition of Wake Up Everybody originally song by Harold Melvin and The Bluenotes which were a Philadelphia native R&B soul group. The song was released in 1975 toping the U.S. R&B charts at #1 and the U.S. Charts at #9. It seems that John Legend and The Roots are trying to call for awareness, engagement and consciousness in our nation. The collaborative album between John Legend and The Roots is set to release September 21.

Introducing Andreya Triana

Nu-Soul Magazine best describes her in a recent interview she did with them:

London-based singer-songwriter Andreya Triana has a resume that’s quite impressive for a self-taught vocalist with an album not yet in stores.Lost Where I Belong, her debut hitting stores on Sept. 7, is on the famed Ninja Tune label, and is produced by downtempo/trip-hop mega producer Bonobo. Furthermore, out of thousands she was selected to attend the Red Bull Music Academy in Australia to hone her skills even more as a musician; to where she’s appeared on works with abstract hip-hop DJ and producer Flying Lotus. Through it all, it seems Andreya has remained humble, appreciative and sincere in her journey from odd jobs to up-and-coming neo soul star. – Nu-Soul Magazine

Below check out the videos for Andreya Triana’s two singles Lost Where I Belong and A Town Called Obsolete which can also be purchased on Itunes.

Hear thefull album preview as part of NPR’s Exclusive First Listen series.

So glad to hear my favorite jazz musician is releasing her third album next Tuesday. She is truly a gift to the world of jazz, and a very unique artist at that the world of jazz hasn’t seen talent like this in a long time. If you like jazz please support Miss Spalding on next Tuesday, you will not be disappointed.

Considering all the jazz artists who ever have reached a wide audience outside the jazz community, I’m quite happy that Esperanza Spalding is doing it now. – NPR

Esperanza Spalding – Little Fly Music Video

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It’s Spalding’s setting of William Blake’s poem “The Fly,” a metaphysical meditation if there ever was one. She’s chosen to accompany a charming original melody with only her double bass and a string trio: violin, viola and cello, arranged by Gil Goldstein. And after she sings, she plays a little bass solo over pizzicato strings: peppy but compact, accented by wordless vocal flourishes. – NPR
