Obscure Soul:Teena Marie – A Rose By Any Other Name ft. Gerald Levert ***messymandella***

      yesOn messymandella.com I love digging through the crates of my parents music and finding beauty in hidden hits, or obscure soul ballads that the Billboard Charts missed, or didn’t give their proper due.

We have showcased Regina Belle, who of course is a Broadway Actress and she is famous for her duet, with Peabo Bryson on the song, “A Whole New World (Aladin’sTheme)” and numerous other hits that you memorized, but had no idea who the songs originated from, during the Slow Jamz period. We know that Gerald Levert has and always will be “The Voice” and “The Teddy Bear” and Teena Marie, is always and Forever “Lady T.”

It is romantic and you can you use your imagination to tell that person how you want them and need them. She wants to be in his arms and she belongs to him, and it didn’t cost anything…

 

 

 

Rise Up With Andra Day***messymandella***


 
      Andra Day is a blast from the 1940′ s and a breath and glimpse of  women who are willing to  create their own legacy of rhythm and blues  and jazz vocalization. Andra is similar to the Motown sound but  is ultimately their own. Her voice also lends a bit of inspiration from Ella Fitzgerald and she is simply beautiful.

 Cheers To The Fall  is a critically acclaimed unveiling of  the voice and writing ability and vision of Mrs. Andra Day. She has  musical ability that  we desperately needing in the music industry and she can now join the ranks of Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Deangelo. Mrs. Day is  singing and incorporates retro soul and the music industry will capitalize on pop music but what happened to soul music?
 
 
Andra’s voice is one of the best of this year and her  sound is reminiscent of  vintage compositions similar to Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke and Nina Simone  have long been forgotten, or unknown by a younger generation until now.
