About the Album

Inspired by the TV character Willona Woods from the show Good Times, "Ooo Child" is the first single taken from Gemini Soul's new album Willona's Boutique. The album embodies Miles Davis' horn arrangements, Herbie Hancock's space-synth sounds, and Esperanza Spalding's cool bass grooves invoking a sexy, sultry, and sensual jazz sound. Willona's Boutique is the band's final album. It features nine tracks including the additional hit singles "The Watchers of the Watchers Are Being Watched," "Buffalo Butt," and "Dilemma." Additionally, the album features a non-themed title, the Meshell Ndegeocello song "Criterion" taken from her album Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape. Recorded with the two founding musicians Andre Ajamu Akinyele: bass, guitars, and keyboards; Jon O'Bergh: piano, Fender Rhodes, and keyboards; additional support by The Nu Jazz Horns: horns; Earl Jones: percussion; Dean "Stix" Jones: drums. Willona's Boutique was recorded for the fans. The album is Gemini Soul's way of giving back and saying thank you after all the years of support.

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!
