Groovy, Sexy & Soulful Part 39 Summer's End Edition

Kandace Springs
Enjoy this 39th edition of ‘Groovy, sexy & soulful’! The theme is falling leaves and fading loves this time... Kandace Springs has just recently released her wonderful debut EP. Originally from Nashville, Tennessee but now living in New York City, she describes her sound as classic Soul meets classic Hip Hop. After singing an impassioned rendition of Bonnie Raitt's 'I Can't Make You Love Me', Blue Note Records President Don Was found himself so stunned by her arrangement and performance that he offered her a record deal on the spot. And earlier this year, legendary artist Prince heard her cover of Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me' online and asked her to perform at Paisley Park on the weekend celebrating the 30 year anniversary of his seminal album/film, Purple Rain. Kandace Springs is currently working on her debut solo album with co-executive producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones) and a team of notable co-writers including Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars), Jack Splash (Cee-Lo), Pop and Oak (Alicia Keys), and Andre Harris (Jill Scott). The album will be released on Blue Note Records/Capitol Music Group in Spring 2015.

The Salsoul Orchestra was formed in 1974 in New York, United States and disbanded in 1982. Their music featured elements of Philadelphia soul, funk, latin and disco. The Salsoul Orchestra included up to 50 members with instrumental section, arrangers and conductors. The Salsoul Orchestra was conducted by Vincent Montana, Jr. Production duties, from 1978 to 1983, were by Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams and Bunny Sigler. The orchestra consisted of most of the original members of Philadelphia International's MFSB, who had moved on to Salsoul as the result of a disagreement with producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff over finances. Other members began performing as The Ritchie Family orchestra, and as John Davis and the Monster Orchestra. On later MFSB recordings, Gamble & Huff used a new rhythm section which caused them to have a slightly different sound. 'Love Break (Ooh I Love It)' from Salsoul Orchestra has been sampled in rap songs such as 50 Cent's 'Candyshop' and Eric B & Rakim's 'Paid in Full', but most notably in Madonna's 'Vogue'. 'You're Just The Right Size' was charted for 5 weeks and reached #88 on Billboard in 1976.
