Shawn Lee - Soul in the hole

..e 2009 já tem um ótimo disco de soul! "Soul In The Hole", um dos lançamentos mais aguardados da sempre atenta Ubiquity Records em tempos recentes, apresenta o soulman Shawn Lee destilando bom gosto em produções pitorescas, ao mesmo tempo em que cria versões, todas muito bem arranjadas, de alguns de seus petardos favoritos do gênero. Emprestando suas vozes para o projeto estão ninguém menos do que Darondo, Nicole Willis e grande elenco. Não vacile...

The most deeply soulful record we’ve ever heard from Shawn Lee — a massive tribute to the soul sounds of the 60s and 70s, served up with help from a host of hip singers who include Darondo, Nicole Willis, Karime Kendra, and Fanny Franklin! Lee’s grooves are as funky as ever, but the instrumentation’s also a bit fuller too — touched with elements of 60s Motown, Memphis, and Muscle Shoals — produced perfectly, and delivered with a depth that we hardly would have expected from Shawn a few short years ago! The album’s a real revelation — one that grabs us with a similar surprise as Jazzanova’s excellent Of All The Things — which is another set that gets a classic soul sound as right as this one. Most tracks are Lee originals, but so well penned, you’d swear they were 60s soul tracks you’d forgotten about — titles that include “Soul In The Hole”, “Land Of Soul”, “Too Tired To Sleep”, “Playboy Bunny”, “Time To Say Goodbye”, “The Stuff”, “Something”, “Whatever Side You’re On”, and “Jigsaw”.
