Some lovely new music floating around this week - New music featuring the classic voice of Tawatha Agee - from Mtume! Something that came out last year but has hit me with a CHIC shaped sledge hammer this week from R&R Orchestra. SEL produced by Michele Chiavarini, a brilliant track from Audiosource, Boogie Back return to remix Will Downing and Kim Tibbs is also back with more fabulous new music. Jamiroquai are back so I have included a new track from their amazing album and 2 fabulous soulies from the last few years. I go back in time showcasing how Japan influenced the US soul market in the early 80s using the Koto. Finally, something from the recently released LeRoy Hutson sessions from 1988.
