CD Reviews

The best CD you've never heard!
Patrice D'angelo | New Jersey | 07/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My husband and I ran across this CD 5 or 6 years ago, when it was sent to our business from a record company as a promo CD. We didn't open it for a while, but then we took a minute and looked on the CD label, which read, "Featuring Stuart Matthewman, Andrew Hale and Paul Denman from Sade" - being Sade fans, we listened right away. We've been HOOKED on this for years, it's the perfect combination of easy listening, jazz and groove. LOVE IT! So much so, I bought it for my boss for a gift. We even bought their next release, "Stage II"."

"I LOVE THIS CD IT IS VERY GOOD. I WAS SURPRISED TO HEAR TWO OF MY FAVORITE SINGER'S ON THE CD, MAXWELL AND AMEL FROM GROOVE THEORY."
Why is the best stuff always out of print?

"Sade's boys don't get enough credit. I couldn't imagine her velvety vocals casting as powerful a spell without wrapping itself around their smooth jams. Sweetback is made up of Stuart Matthewman on guitar and sax, Paul Denman on bass, and Andrew Hale on piano and keyboards. While Sade decided to return to her regular life after Love Deluxe, the guys decided to set off on their own. Some of the songs here sound like they would fit perfectly on any Sade record, but most stretch themselves out to embrace traces of chill-out, dub, and Arabic influences. The criminally underrated Amel Larrieux graces the mystical Gaze and inspirational You Will Rise (my fav!). Maxwell's buttery falsetto sizzles on Softly, Softly and Bahamadia drops some tight rhymes on the laidback Au Natural. Sade's back-up singer Leroy Osbourne gets a rare chance to shine solo on the midnight glow of Hope She'll Be Happier. Instrumentals like the dreamy Chord and rockish Arabesque are highlights as well. Great music to relax to after a long day or a rainy evening."
