has Rahsaan Patterson
been? For the last 3 yrs we've been teased with track after track by
this talented singer/songwriter but still there's no full length
that we know of. Well all that's about to change as I can now tell
you that there is a new album on the horizon in the form of 'The
probably asking yourself...what a 'best of' but there's only been 2
albums to date right! Yes that's true but 'The
Best' is an album of
all new material and not a greatest hits as one might imagine.
might be premature to write a review for an album that's not due for
another 6 months but we are talking about one of my favourite
singers in Rahsaan and so it just can't be helped. The
last 3 tracks that he's done 2 of which have appeared on soundtracks
fr: Two can play that
make life so good'
from the forthcoming soundtrack Brown Sugar)
and 'The one for me'
fr: Steve Harvey's -
Sign of things to come
will appear on the new album alongside several forthcoming
soul masterpieces that's sure to wet the appetite.
making the rounds at the moment is 'The
One for me' a song
that's destined to be another smash hit for Rahsaan. In typical
fashion he takes you on a musical journey of true soul spirit with a
track consisting a sweet bass line, moving lyrics and pin
point production. Call your local radio station and ask them
to play it frequent and often - it's that good. The latest
make life so good' is
just another shining example of this man's talent as a
singer/songwriter and producer - moody
overtones and strings married over a soothing bass line and
Rahsaan's smooth baritone caressing the words as only he can - pure
his music is concerned, the man is a true genius in my mind the Marvin
Gaye of the new millennium.
heard a bad track yet in all his outings to date and that's saying a lot in
today's standard cos' there is a lot of bad tracks about (if you catch
my drift). Like you I eagerly await the new album as it should and (I
will say) be 'something special'. Due date is tentatively set for
early next February (I'm hoping it's sooner). l
A true TY-D
