Groovy, Sexy & Soulful Part 68 Dawn Edition

Imagine you’re chilling out with an intimate friend until the sun comes up… ;-)

Having made her mark on Brazil’s rich musical legacy with three best-selling albums to date, Rio’s original nu-bossa queen Sabrina Malheiros has returned with a tour de force of golden-era Brazilian soul music. From the spiritual swing of the early pioneers of modern Samba, to the dizzying hedonism of Brazil’s eighties disco/boogie craze, her new album 'Clareia' is a life-affirming journey through the rich and varied sounds Sabrina Malheiros has been immersed in since she can remember. For her most up-lifting and danceable album to date, Sabrina has (as always) enlisted her father Alex Malheiros (bassist of samba jazz-funk legends Azymuth) and London based producer Daniel Maunick (aka Dokta Venom), son of Incognito’s Bluey.

Singer/songwriter Jamison is not a typical R&B singer. With a voice that garners comparisons to Anthony Hamilton and R Kelly his baritone sound coupled with outside the box lyrics creates an experience not often found in contemporary soul music. His debut release, 'Re-Souled' from 2013, is a collaboration between Jamison and songwriter/producer Troy Cedeno recorded at Short Circuit Studios in Tampa, Florida.

Enjoy this episode of Groovy, Sexy and Soulful! Thanks to Jenny Karubian for telling me about the Jamison track, which is a great discovery.
