Don't Hate on the Q,
This review is from: Soul Bossa Nostra (Audio CD)
This was not Back on the Block or The Dude.....but these re-workings were for me more successful than say Q's Jook Joint. The first 3 tunes set Mr Jones's stall out early, Ironside, with a hip-hop vibe. Strawberry Letter 23, OK Akon needs to get over the autotune things, but this was a haunting take that takes you in another direction. Soul Bossa Nostra is one of the coolest tunes I've heard in a while.
The rest of the CD takes a bow to the Brothers Johnson and George Benson. I have recently repurchased Mellow Madness, and honestly, I believe that Q's Soul Bossa Nostra stands its ground!
