A subtle cross between r&b and jazz. Nice easy listening.

"IF YOU ARE INTO SMOOTH RELAXING MUSIC WITH GOOD LYRICS...THIS IS THE CD FOR YOU. I FIRST HEARD THIS ABOUT KEM WHILE IN CHICAGO, THE SONG "LOVE CALLS" WAS ALL OVER THE RADIO. THE CD HAS A JAZZ/R&B FEEL TO IT. THE CD HITS ON LOVE, SOCIAL ISSUES AND THE SPIRIT. I JUST HOPE THAT MOTOWN DOES THE BROTHER SOME JUSTICE ON THE PROMOTIONS. MY THOUGHTS ON THE CD:1. Matter of Time...A SONG ABOUT LIFE AND CHANGE.(4)
2. Miss You....A JAZZY TUNE ABOUT MISSING THE ONE U LOVE.(4)
3. Say...MY FAVORITE. MELLOW RELAXING THOUGHT PROVOKING.(5)
4. Inside...AN UP-TEMPO SONG. GOOD FOR STEPPERS.(4)
5. I'm Missin' Your Love...SECOND FAVORITE. A MID-TEMPO SONG (4)
6. Love Calls....YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHEN LOVE WILL HIT YA.(5)
7. Brotha Man...A GOOD SONG ABOUT SOCIAL ISSUES AND THE SPIRIT. (4)
8. Cherish This Moment...MID TEMPO SONG. (5)
9. This Place (Dedicated to the Church of Today)...THE TITLE SAYS IT ALL...AND I LIKE IT (4)
10. You Are...A NICE LOVE SONG. THIS WOULD BE THE WEDDING SONG OF THE ALBUM (5)"
Al Jarreau's Long Lost Progeny?

"I first heard Kem at a friend's house. Now, being originally from Detroit, I know good soul music when I hear it and it takes a lot to impress a native. But when this brother's satiny vocals started pouring from the speakers, a part of me just melted. The very first thought that cam to my mind was the warm breeze on a humid Detroit summer day (if you've ever been, ya know what I mean!). I imagined a midnight ride along the Detroit River with my love with Kem's voice as our soundtrack. I know it sounds cliche', but this brotha is smooth. He effortlessly blends jazz and soul, gospel and a little bit of coffeehouse vibe, all with that tinge of Motown flavor that makes it so delicious. "Missing Your Love" is one of my favorites because it reminds me of my long distance lover and its just so damn cool. The songs blend into one another like a seamless line. This is grown folk music, y'all.And I can't end this review without mentioning the fact that Kem is almost a dead ringer for Al Jarreau in his song stylings and mood. Now for the diehard AJ fans, this may sound like blasphemy, but its true. There is that familiarity and effortless melding of lyrics and melody that make me think young Kem might just be kin to the great Al Jarreau, or at lest one of his greatest admirers. You never know..."
