I'm thoroughly impressed with my purchase of "Ace of Hearts." It's turned out to be one of the best albums I've bought this year. I hate it when I have to skip around in an album because the material is uneven. But this album is a straight shot from start to finish. This can be attributed to what Cleveland P. Jones is able to do with his vocal range and vocal textures. He made me want to see what he could do next. I felt like he was beckoning me on. Don't believe me. Listen to "Same Page." (Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on back.....). Talk about true grit.

"Ace of Hearts" is reminiscent of the Vintage Soul that came out of Memphis in the 60s and 70s from the likes of Ann Pebbles ("I Can't Stand The Rain"), Temprees ("Dedicated To The One I Love").

What I liked most was the various vocal textures throughout the album. Cleveland serves up a honey-fried raspy voice on the title cut as he sings, "This time I played the fool. This time you win, I lose." On "Back to Me", he treats us to a crispy cream sound that shows off more of his range. On every song, he continues to deliver long-forgotten-heartfelt-soul. Sometimes his is a wretched soul. Sometimes he regroups and fights back.

Melody-wise, my current earworm, "Free Yard Sale" reminds me of "I Can't Stand The Rain." I believe this song may be the first released single and hit.

The standout: Cleveland's falsetto is like Cool Whip. Yes, it's that creamy and smooth. I just wish I could place Cleveland's voice in a jar and preserve it the way some folks preserve homemade jams.

It's not often that I am going to hear an artist of today work from a place of simplicity like Cleveland does here with "Ace of Hearts" ( the accompanying non-techno instruments are there to bring out his voice and not overpower it), plus the man is singing about something I can relate to, heartbreak, love and moving on.
