Joss Stone Part Two

Introducing Joss Stone has become part of my daily routine, I listen as I catch up on my correspondence and get up to dance at points :)

I had to do it, I bought, 'The Soul Sessions' and 'Mind, Body and Soul' her first two releases. This has also rekindled my interest in R&B.

In other listening:

Bill Laswell: lo def pressure
Material: Intonarumori
Gigi: gold and wax

Joss Stone

Introducing Joss Stone

First listen I was stunned at how underwhelmed I was, like totally underwhelmed. I had seen her perform on the telly several times and was suitably impressed dancing in my seat wondering if I should go out and sample her musical wares. So, I finally did, second-hand of course and was underwhelmed. So sad.

A week or so later I gave it another listen and was entranced and danced about my kitchen, bed and bathrooms and here I am seated still dancing. I blame the initial poor impression on my equalizer, which on that first, dismal sampling betrayed me with tin and muddied clarity.

Dance, dance, dance, and dance in my dancing shoes.
