4.0 out of 5 stars An impressive first album, 9 Dec 2008
This review is from: Music In My Soul [Us Import] (Audio CD)
Music in My Soul [Us Import]

Hailing from the sunshine state of California, USA comes the smooth soul sound of Leigh Jones with her album release Music In My Soul.

This release from Leigh has a sound throughout that is definitely in the soul camp with jazz & R&B influences.

"Music" & the cover of Debarge's "All This Love" confirm the soulfulness of Ms Jones. "Cold In LA" lyrically delivers a strong story about the city. "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love" is a gospel sounding track that has a fine uplifting feel. The sound of "Have it Your Way" with its soft trumpet accompanies Leigh's voice well.

"Freefall" with its modern R&B feel and "Sick Of Fools" both with Leigh's stories of the ups & downs of relationships. Leigh vocal ability again is evident on the blues sounding, "Leaving You". The sound of smooth jazz on the album returns on "Same Game", "The Words You Never Say" and "Goodbye". "Who, What, Why" is a nice ballad.

According to Leigh's MySpace page she's already had positive support from the likes of Motown founder Berry Gordy & Stax records Al Bell. It's hardly surprising to see why, the comparisons to Teena Marie are bound to happen, but for a debut album, this a great start. Hopefully we'll hear more of Leigh Jones in 2009.
