Fiona's Comments

This is the kind of music to start the weekend off. A fun tune that had me smiling wide before it was over.

About the Album

Lakecia Benjamin's unique new contribution to the future of soul and funk on her debut album is sure to win over fans of acts from Maceo Parker and Sharon Jones to Adele and Erykah Badu. In keeping with her eclectic style, the tracks are a mix of vocal and instrumental joints ranging from peaceful to party jams like “Maceo,” a period-perfect, JB's-style tribute to funky sax legend Maceo Parker.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
