Sorry, Q, but as a fan of yours for over four decades, I can't relate to these "reworkings." They are pale successors to the original versions, even with an all-star cast of contemporary artists. I suppose in an attempt to garner the younger listener, the producer enlisted the aid of the likes of T-pain, Akon, and Jamie Foxx, to name a few but these versions don't come close to matching the genius of the original recordings, even with the big-name trappings.

Sergio Mendes successfully traveled similar territory in his last three recordings, by managing to incorporate the present without destroying the past.

Q, unfortunately, ruined some true classics in an attempt to latch on to the hip-hop generation, producing a disc that alienates his fan base and probably doesn't do enough to attract younger audiences.

Barry ("The Secret Garden"), Michael ("P.Y.T.") and even Raymond Burr ("Ironside") have to be uttering a heavenly groan to the songs on this album.

This was not Back on the Block or The Dude.....but these re-workings were for me more successful than say Q's Jook Joint. The first 3 tunes set Mr Jones's stall out early, Ironside, with a hip-hop vibe. Strawberry Letter 23, OK Akon needs to get over the autotune things, but this was a haunting take that takes you in another direction. Soul Bossa Nostra is one of the coolest tunes I've heard in a while.

The rest of the CD takes a bow to the Brothers Johnson and George Benson. I have recently repurchased Mellow Madness, and honestly, I believe that Q's Soul Bossa Nostra stands its ground!
