Format: Audio CD
As a 40 something white male, I'm not the demographic for this album, and my normal reaction to the likes of "Troubled Singer" Amy Winehouse, Kate Allen, Lily Nash etc is to flip the off button.

So I was surprised - and pleased - to find that this is a very good album on the whole. Its good points are
1. The Music - though it is full of the currently fashionable horns and 60s soul sound, it doesn't sound contrived or consciously "retro". On the contrary, it sounds very contemporary - the sort of thing that gives "pop" a good name.
2. Singer Imani Coppola has a great voice
3. When the songs work - which is at least 7 of the 11 tracks - they are catchy, full of humour and wry observation.

On the negative side, there are a few let downs. The lyrics are sometimes embarassingly awful - "men are from Mars, women are from Venus, we think with our minds, they think with their penis" being possibly the worst example while the final track is a cliched "we had it tough as kids but we all looked after each other" with a hip-hop by numbers tune. And some of the targets are a bit predictable.

That said, any album which contains songs as good as "28 Butts", in which the singer wonders how a childhood full of fun and promise has deteriorated into unemployment, cigarettes and booze, or as funny as "Cryin' for the Queen" which is a thinly veiled attack on the above mentioned "Troubled Singer" is definitely worth investigating

Here, I'll have some of that Joss Stone / Amy Winehouse success. Please. Thus the return of nineties one hit wonder, Imani Coppola is heralded. You may remember her from the minor 1997 hit 'Legend of a Cowgirl', the Donovan sampling Top 40 record, or even her debut album, famously named "Chupucabra". Or "goat sucker" to the Spanish speakers out there. Either way, her kooky Daisy Age, De La Soul style pop saw her getting dropped by her record company, with a second album shelved.

Since then, she's been off on the musical fringes, doing her own thing. And when I tell you that some of that time was spent with arch madman and erstwhile Faith No More dude, Mike Patton, then you will know just how far she had travelled from her heyday. Things aren't helped by an interview she gave where she admitted that the success of Gnarls Barkley and Amy Winehouse "gave me a great opportunity to get back in the game". If that sounded a little too calculating, her choice of collaborator in Little Jackie turned out to be Adam Pallin, a producer best known for his stints working with various American Idol contestants.

So, cold hearted bid for pop mainstream. Probably. So curses for this album being so gosh darned good! Because it is. The music is very Motown derived, so that should be good enough to score some radio airplay. It's chock full of memorable melodies, and little bits that have you humming for days. Well garnished soul pop for the Tesco / WalMart shoppers who scare easily. Feel free to drop in some hip-hop rhythms, bit for pitys sake, don't scare away Middle America. To be fair, Ms Coppola does drop in some barbed lines here and there, although the targets - Paris Hilton and globalisation - are a bit too weekend eco-warrior to hit home with any venom.

I must've played 28 Butts at least 28 times the first week I had this CD in my car. But all the tracks are interesting - a post Winehouse, intelligent, witty, evolved sound. I want to live in Brooklyn, have a stoop.

HASH(0x8d84869c) out of 5 stars A bit of confusion... 22 July 2008
By DD Winters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is no denying that this album is absolutely fantastic, but the previous reviews are a bit misleading. Little Jackie IS Imani Coppola. It's the group name of her and partner Adam Pallin. The group name is taken from the Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam song "Little Jackie Wants To Be A Star". I know that the vocals are credited to "Little Jackie" in the CD notes , but make no mistake, the vocalist and talent behind this is none other than Imani. It's a great extension of her solo work.

By Kat - Published on Amazon.com

I had never heard of this artist before but I am glad that I surfed the web to the right place. This is a great album. Honestly one of the best in 2008 and good music like this does not come around often. Every song on this album is a 10/10

HASH(0x8d848b28) out of 5 stars Soul-Inspired, But More Than Neo-Soul 6 May 2009
By Rob Szarka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Given that singer Imani Coppola calls her out on "Cryin' for the Queen", it's inevitable that Little Jackie be compared to the current crop of neo-soul singers exemplified by Amy Winehouse. Little Jackie isn't out-of-place in that company, with an album full of songs that are heavily inspired by the soul sound of the 60s and 70s, but if I had to compare them to a contemporary it would be Lily Allen (or maybe even The Pinker Tones): Coppola's fun, sassy attitude, as well as Adam Pallin's musical programming, is more about plundering the past in the service of creating something new than paying homage.

There's plenty more in the mix, from hip hop (think Pigeon John or Handsome Boy Modeling School) to 80s-era Prince (especially on "The Kitchen"), but the end result is something more than pastiche. If there's a unifying principle, it's Coppola's intelligent sense of humor and an appealing combination of innocence and posturing. This is an upbeat, fun album that's perfect for the beach, but the songs have enough going on below the surface to still be in your playlist when fall arrives. My favorite track is probably "Liked You Better Before", but there are enough great songs here that you should buy the whole album and pick your own. Here's hoping that we hear more soon from this talented team!

HASH(0x8d848b10) out of 5 stars The Music Revolves Around Jackie! 19 July 2008
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am not one to buy music based on something I saw on TV or a movie (that would more likely be my mom lol) but when I heard Litte Jackie perform a couple weeks back on Conan O'Brian I had this urge to check out the CD. Luckily I was able to find it,and the next day there was an almost two hour car trip on a great sunny day to slap this into the CD player and bliss out.AND WHAT A TRIP IT WAS! Almost in an INSTANT my mom and I were sining along to the music!For one this album just about REEKS of New York;this powerful,soulful singer/rapper wails away about how "nothin's got nothin on NYC"-Jackie is obviously from the same area of Brooklyn as my mom and gives a no-nonsense treatment of Imani Coppola's writing,lyrics and production. This plus the highly funkafied mix of vintage Motown,70's soul and modern hip-hop/R&B gives plenty of room for the multi instrumentalist Adam Pallin and a red hot horn section to work some groovalicious musical magic! There is no question that given the chance Little Jackie will come totally into her own as an independant artist less reliant on Imani Copolla and Adam Pallin but considering how talented both those people are Jackie has amazing taste in collaborators and if you see her videos or performances she can work the stage with her band with the same power as Tina Turner or Rufus & Chaka Khan,all the while doing the very thing that made them special;showcasing a great individual identity and a whole lot of spunk. From "The World Should Revolve Around Me" to "I Liked You Better Before" and the title track every song is great! I cannot agree more with the previous reviewer who stated that this is a very strong candidate for one of THE albums of the year and,considering I'm a person primarily devoted to the golden age of R&B and funk in the 70's and 80's this holds a proud place in my collection. And that's part of why I like this;it has strong roots in styles of the past but isn't drowning in it;the mixture of hip-hip style programming,live instrumentation and (most important) INCREDIBLY STRONG writing give this the distinction of being a great focal point for a very badly needed new form of pop/R&B as the wave of the future!

HASH(0x8d848fd8) out of 5 stars All killer, no filler 12 Jan. 2011
By Christopher L. Parsons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The "All killer no filler" was from iTunes All Music review, the impetus of what made me buy it. Music proves them right. Funny. Smart. Cool. Edgy but warm and rich. Happy surprises at every corner. P.S. the guy who gave it one star review has given 1 or 2 stars to all the music he reviews- apparently he only purchases albums he doesn't like.
