Product description

Product Description

Critically acclaimed vocalist and song stylist Lalah Hathaway continues her musical legacy with her Stax Records 2008 debut Self portrait, a contemporary urban soul collection that takes one on an introspective journey into the contemporary adult R&B world. Self Portrait will truly satisfy Lalah's core fans,and is so refreshing that it will guarantee her new fans as well! The album features special guests Marcus Miller, Joe Sample and Rahsaan Patterson. Lalah is the daughter of the famed Soul artist Donny Hathaway and she has sold nearly half a million CDs in her career. This project reunites Lalah with noted producer Rex Rideout, who also produced her recent #1 single "Forever, for always, for love". "Lalah continues to fortify her legacy as a modern day vocal priestess. This album is her most personal, laden with severe emotional voodoo and sublime passion.'- Garth Trinidiad, host of KCRW's "Chocolate City".

Self Portrait is Lalah's 4th album and she just keeps on getting better and better. The cover sticker calls it contemporary urban soul, whatever that is. Genre defying it certainly is. Rhythm n Bass it is not, neither is it neo soul - more a deep soul. If you must have a comparison......think along the lines of Anthony Hamilton.

Whatever. It's an excellent example of the art of songwriting, simple but sympathetic arrangements, wonderfully effective backing vocals, great musicianship and production. On top of all that is the voice. THE voice. Full, warm, earthy, full of soul. In fact, close your eyes and from time to time - particularly in the ad libs - you will swear that you are listening to Donny. I can give no higher compliment than that.

Every time I play this album I get taken back to the time when soul albums were events, got into your heart and mind and were played and played......and played. Not like the disposable output of much of today's sales-targeted product. It seems to have been made with no mind to whether or not it would sell - and it's much the better for it. There's the rub - it should sell in bucketloads. Lalah should be a household name, and not because of her father but because of her own true talent.

If you like your music honest, classy, great songs, great arrangements and musicianship, then this is for you. Buy with confidence.

Bought for my Dad, he found this album very smooth and chilled out. So chilled that he's usually rocking his head with his eyes closed (never sleeping of course! lol). Laylah has a wonderful silky voice and the transitions from each track a fluid.

Really good arrangments on this CD. She uses modern recording techniques and does some very punchy numbers on it.
Great!

Beautiful album from a singer with a gorgeous voice but a word of caution. The recording quality on many of the tracks on this album is flawed. It's as though they have been copied from a dirty vinyl album....pops and crackles abound actually on the recording. Not what I expect from a new full price cd.
