Format: Audio CD
For deep house fans the name that has most eagerly been looked for in the past two you years has been that of producer Jay Denes.Everything that has appeared under his Naked Music imprint has simply oozed soulfulness, sophistication and sheer excellence.This 1998 offering has all of the above but at a slower tempo.This is really a modern soul album, spiritually and musically much closer to those artists grouped around the new classic soul tag than the four to the floor world of house.This is urban music with the emphasis on urbane.The tempo might seem a little too one-dimensional for some , but once you get past that what you have is a beautifully crafted, perfectly performed( vocalists Catherine Russell and Ada Dyer are particularly good) album of contemporary ballads.Emotional but never cloying, the moodiness and well-crafted( if somewhat sparse) production combine to produce a body of work that will stand the test of time.Even if Denes does not break overground in 2000,as he surely will, this album will be listened when many much more publicised "new soul" projects have long been forgotten.

A Lot of People Don't Get It.... 24 Mar. 2005
By Ziontrain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great album, but his is not an album for you to "listen" to. It's more of a chillout or romantic album. Jay Denes, (the creator of this album) has said as much in the liner notes, which include a quote of Catherine Russell (one of the featured singers): "Oh I understand, its a ---- record. OK, roll the tape".

In that light, the similar mood of the songs, the thick earthy vibe and the super-soulful sensual vocals are actually perfect. It creates a constant mood over the full time frame of the CD, so you can simply escape to a world of raw unbridled sensuality. Taken individually, only one or two of these songs are 5-stars. As a body of work - an album - they hold together impeccably and create the desired effect. You cannot assess them as "singles". That doesn't seem to have been the objective here. By the way the production is crisp and top-notch on every single track. You feel like you could have been in the studio with them, the sound has that much presense and life.

Jay Denes used a top notch crew of NYC funkateers, including Mark Anthony Jones (thefunkiestmanalive) on guitar, and Jonathan Maron (way, way underrated bass player from the Groove Collective). Bob Power (engineer/producer on Stetsasonic and De La Soul's classic album) appears here on guitat. Flutist Richard Worth of Groove Collective also appears on "Its love".

The singers (Ada Dyer and Catherine Russell) are not famous - but damn they SHOULD be. They give a master class here in deep soul singing. Not for them the rabid histrionics of Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and a million misguided "Idol" contestants all over the world, but REAL modern soul singing, in CONTROLLED voice. if this were the 60's and not the MTV age, I suspect these women would be up there in fame with the Betty Wrights and Shirley Jones's.

I think they all did a perfect job for what they set out to do.

Don't chill it...slow burn it! 9 July 2001
By DXR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Oh yeah, there's a difference. Slow burn = absolute soul 2001. No nonsense, straight ahead, deep and strong grooves. This CD features the amazing vocal prowess of Ada Dyer (mostly)overlaid like a veil of smoke on the down tempo grooves and sweet stuff of the Naked Music tribe from NYC.
The title song, borrowing respectfully from the 1970 Marvin Gaye classic "What's Going On", is too beautiful for words. And the rest is right there too.
Got soul? Want soul? GET THIS.

sad never felt so good 1 Feb. 2002
By Saul Boulschett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
True, the songs do sound a bit like one another, but maybe that's why I press 'repeat' and listen to it for hours. One guy pretty much wrote all the songs and did the programming. The songs are simple in their structure but not in their feeling or in their incomparable delivery. The two ladies who alternate on the tracks sing with that certain je-ne-sais-quois that only the soulfulest people have. This is one of those musical creations that make you realize to what extent the sensibility of the modern world as a whole has been shaped by afro-americans. These ladies sing not with their throats but with their wombs. A plangent - not to say bluesy - atmosphere pervades the whole Cd throughout...about love lost, hope remembered, ego surrendered, and peace attained. This music will speak to you if you've ever loved to the point of trembling with sadness. Music for real grown-ups, in other words.

modern yet timeless R&B 2 Jan. 1999
By newfrontierhoward@msn.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You do not have to rely on classic 70's R&B with Naked Music NYC. The grooves, beats, and vocals sound familiar yet are of the moment. It is a pleasure to discover classic sounding R&B from a current artist.
Naked Music NYC ‎- What's On Your Mind? 6 Mar. 2013
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before there was Naked Music the label, there was Naked Music NYC, the solo Jay Denes' project. WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND, his first album, shows the smooth R&B/house vibe that he'd continue to cultivate throughout his career. Ada Dyer's vocals power many of these tracks, from the silky "It's Love" to the most atmospheric "What's On Your Mind?" or the soulful "Love is Everything." Catherine Russell gets to exercise her funk with "If I Fall..." and to mourn a romance with "It's Too Late" and "Trouble (Show Me)." If you prefer instrumentals "3 A.M. (Naked Theme)" hits the sweet spot. But as soothing as the album is, I think that it slips by too easily, despite the strengths of tracks like "It's Love." It needs more of a bite to stay on the mind.
