The album "The Contemporary Soul Songbook Volume 3" contains sixteen tracks. A nice thing about these volumes is that you might be introduced to artists you have never heard of before. Sixteen tracks mean sixteen new names and faces which always arouses one's interest.
The first track to really grab your attention might be "Hell On My Hands" from Charlie Brown. The theme of this song might remind you of Luther Ingram's "If Loving You Is Wrong(I don't Wanna Be Right)". In a compelling bluesy soul song the temptations of life have been written down and sung.
The passion from Antoinette in "Indulgence" will make you love this song. Very convincing is The New Congress with the song "With Me". It begins somewhat like "Down By The River" from Buddy Miles and then changes into a more rocky song. Kenny Wesley has the groove in the kind of stepper's song "Serenity" from his 2008 EP "I'm Sorry". He has a pleasant voice to listen to and uses it to the fullest in this song. Saxophonist Eldon "T" Jones is strongly present on the sensual track "A Good Thing" from producer Brandon Woods. You can call it a laid back late night track with smooth voices from Tracey Harris and Ronnie Wright. Me'Na with "Deja View" also gives you that midnight feeling. A bit of a George Benson guitar style we hear in "He Did It All For You" a smooth jazz song from Marshall Badger. Seductive Souls featuring Aaron Washington with "Your Love" might seduce you to. Last but not least Papik plays the sweet mix of latin and samba "Rhythm Of Life".(TA)
