About the show
Playing tracks by
Paul Young, Smokey Robinson VS Beastie Boys, Sade, Morcheeba, Mary J Blige and more.
You may call it NuSoul or R&B Revival ... Or maybe just call it a groove. This meditation took flight from the JBoogie edit of Smokey Robinson's Cruisin' (respect to Smokey for having one of the perennial Top 10 Quiet Storm jams to his credit, and a shout-out to Justin for his open-handed generosity in making these great remixes of his available.)
Equally influential is a full-on heart-tugger from Fantasia, which made Said the Gramaphone's Best of 2013 (and another shout-out to StG, for their invaluable recommendations and writing skills all year long.)
Add a little mid-period Maxwell sexuality, Mary J. Blige going deep in your mind & heart, a couple of tunes from STAC, and Paul Young representing for the blue-eyed soul contingent and you've got yourself a bumpin' good time. Remember to bring the heat now, y'all ... it's gonna be quiet-stormin' something fierce tonight.
