i listen to many genres but i love jazz the most.i also like soul but i don't know many artists that feature that kind of genre aside from amy winehouse so i was happy to listen to what you shared. thanks
The Northern Soul, Nippon Girl, Carolina Beach Music and Modern Soul scenes are where all the good stuff is at. Some neo-soul and fusion stuff is good too, like Erykah Badu, Me'Shell NdegéOcello, Hil St. Soul, Aloe Blacc. Some old ska (one of the precursory genres to reggae) has strong soul and jazz/bebop influence as well, such as Roland Alphonso's "Blackberry Brandy".
I love all of the older stuff you suggested especially AI Wilson and the cupids. You obvoiusly have a lot of knowledge when i it comes to this sort of music. I think the other more modern artists you mentioned are just too jazzy for me ( I'm very picky on my music tastes . Thanks for all the links though much appreciated
