Product Description

Product Description

Maysa is one of the finest soul/jazz vocalists of the past 15 years, with a multi-genre appeal to fans of jazz, R&B and dance music. She has made an impact as featured vocalist with Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove and groove/dance ensemble Incognito as well as on her own solo albums. SWEET CLASSIC SOUL finds Maysa delivering moving interpretations of her favourite soul songs which have been inspirational to her. The results are her finest work as a vocalist to date as she makes each one of these well-known classics fresh and exciting. The album features such instantly familiar, well-loved songs as "Wishing On A Star", "Love Won't Let Me Wait", "Betcha By Golly Wow" and others made popular by the likes of Roberta Flack,The Stylistics, Rose Royce, Major Harris and many more. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Chris "Big Dog" Davis (producer of recent successes by Will Downing and Najee) and featuring top saxophonist Kim Waters, SWEET CLASSIC SOUL brings the perfect blend of jazzy sophistication, sensual atmosphere and soul to fans of R&B and Smooth Jazz alike.

Sweet, soulful music and Maysa's lovely voice. I like this CD a lot. A few of the songs is a little boring, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maysa, Maysa, Maysa! Thank You For Giving Us Some 'Sweet Classic Soul' 8 May 2006
By Charles L. Hubbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must disclose upfront that I as well as my wife are both HUGE Maysa fans...so this review is probably going to be a little bias (hey, at least I admit it...unlike some reviewers!) Nevertheless, Maysa has decided to expand into doing other types of albums. Such is the case with Sweet Classic Soul, a collection of carefully crafted remakes of some of the best songs of the last half century. A lot of artists don't even attempt to try their hands at doing covers, while other artists who have no business even thinking about doing one fail miserably. Being the strong vocalist that she is, Maysa pulls off these songs without breaking a sweat.

Her cover of "Wishing On A Star" is just as strong as Rose Royce's original version. "Don't Say Goodnight" is a good spin on an old classic. Such is the case for her rendition of Stevie Wonder's "All I Do." The fact that Maysa would even cover "Love Won't Let Me Wait" by Major Harris is truly wonderful. "Come Go With Me" is not as strong as Teddy Pendergrass' original, but it still passes as a decent shot at doing such an timeless classic. The same can be said for the Stylistics' "Betcha By Golly Wow," a cover that was done better by Prince some years ago. She does belt out a pretty good version of "Playing Your Game, Baby" by Barry White. She closes out the album with her take on "Love Comes Easy," "Any Love" (not Luther's version), and "The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face)."

Even though she stuck to some older material, Maysa does an exceptional job on most of the song choices that she did make. Hopefully with the release of Sweet Classic Soul, Maysa will do other specialized collections like a live album or even a duets disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars "So weet", So needed... 28 Feb 2006
By V. Burton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have to say that after waiting anxiously for the release of this albulm, I am more than gratified. The wait was well worth it. Maysa has a superb voice. Seeing her "LIVE" is even better. This girl has not gotten the recognition she deserves. If you are into smotth jazz and silky voices, this one is the one for you. After a long day at work, you can put this CD in and let her take you to a serene place. Well worth the buy. BTW check out some of her previous releases as well. My fav is "All my life" from her and off course her contribution to the Brittish Jazz band Incognito.

This is a must in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Vocal Talent...Great CD...you need to buy this CD 15 Mar 2006
By Gary Berman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big Maysa fan since the first day I heard her singing with Incognito years ago, and this CD just really brings out her pure vocal skills and talent. Maysa has the kind of voice that just sends chills down your spine as soon as she starts singing...it just gets right to your inner soul. All of these songs are great songs, and Maysa adds her own little style and touch to make each song her own, eventhough many of them have been remade by many other singers in the past. If you are a fan of great R&B/Soul Music and want to hear an amazing vocal talent, this CD is a great addition to any collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Classic 28 Feb 2006
By gwells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you are a lover of 70's R&B and soul, then Sweet Classic Soul is a must for your collection. Maysa has done a wonderful job in recreating and re-energizing these timeless classic songs. Sweet Classic Soul pays tribute to the artists who inspired Maysa to become who she is today and she has honored them in a big way. Maysa is truly one of the greatest voices of this generation and this CD certainly bears that out. Come Go With Me will knock your socks off. The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face) will bring a tear to your eye. This CD is wonderful from beginning to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, unique and soulful voice :-> 5 Mar 2006
By Little Miss Cutey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To be honest, I hadn't heard of Maysa before, but I know most of the songs on here and I love R n'b and thought I'd take a chance on this. I'm glad I did, because it's so well done and these remakes are great. She has a unique voice and her interpretation of these songs is really beautiful and has a strong jazz feel. I love this cd. It's nice to chill to and I highly recommend it. (I especially love Wishing On A Star - she does that well).
