Product Description

Melinda Doolittle's debut CD: A combination of the fierce electricity of Tina Turner s early years with the lush instrumentation of today s pop-soul renaissance

Review

It s Your Love -
Melinda Doolittle -
Imagine Gladys Knight with Pipettes instead of Pips. That s the sonic stamp on Melinda Doolittle s It s Your Love, the soaring, robust R&B single from debut album Coming Back to You, expected in February.

The Tennessee singer, one of American Idol s most gifted rejects, finished third in 2007 behind Blake Lewis (huh?) and winner Jordin Sparks. Her sterling album, and particularly this soulful slice with its retro girl-group vibe, reveals an accomplished stylist and nimble vocalist with an instrument built for Motown updates and lush pop-jazz. Doolittle, 31, does a lot for today s retro-soul renaissance. --Edna Gundersen

Biography

Melinda Doolittle is perhaps best known to audiences as a Finalist (Top 3 - Season 6) on American Idol. However, the soul-stirring singer boasted an impressive resume as a back-up singer prior to her meteoric rise to household name in 2007. In 2013, Melinda released a much anticipated EP, "You're The Reason", featuring several songs written by Doolittle.

Next CD will not be too long in coming, I hope, and will be more MELINDA & more original.
Kitty Moore
Each song is like a miniature tapestry, where Melinda paints a musical picture-story with her voice.
J. Moffet
She still has a great voice but her song selection and the production of them is not very good.

From start to finish, Melinda Doolittle's new album, "Coming Back to You" is simply soul magic. Thirteen songs showcase her vocal range with an exquisite blend of gritty blues, Tina Turner-style rockers, smooth jazz (imagine Nancy Wilson but even better), and beautiful ballads reminiscent of "My Funny Valentine" which feature Melinda's rich velvety vocals set against lush instrumental backdrops. Every song has as its foundation, soul, pure powerful heartfelt soul. Most albums have four or five "good" songs tops. This album has thirteen "incredible" songs, no duds! Each song is like a miniature tapestry, where Melinda paints a musical picture-story with her voice. If you're searching for an album you can play from start to finish, listen to over and over, and never tire of it, this one's for you.

"Let's get back to the fundamental things
Let's get back to the elements of style"

So sings Melinda Doolittle in the opening cut of "Coming Back to You", her debut CD. And get back she does, applying her impressive vocals to grooves, rhythms and melodies that span the best of the past, including songs from Robert Johnson (a scintillating "Dust My Broom", "Walking Blues") and Sammy Cahn (gorgeous renditions of "The Best of Everything", "I'll Never Stop Loving You" and "Wonder Why"). Other standouts include "It's Your Love", an outstanding "girl group" effort and "If I'm Not in Love", a song made famous by Faith Hill and reimagined as a soul burner. Few artists have the vocal chops of Melinda Doolittle, but it's her emotional connection to the material that makes her one of the best vocalists of her generation. This CD both satisfies and whets the appetite for more - five stars.
After listening to this CD for months, both in my car and on my home system, I have one recommendation for anyone who wants to understand how great Melinda is: Listen to "Wonder Why", the final song on "Coming Back to You".
It is just Melinda's voice, backed by a Fender Rhodes style piano. And her phrasing is astonishing - utterly beguiling. There are a few examples of an artist so completely inhabiting a song that it becomes a definitive version. Eva Cassidy's "Over The Rainbow" comes to mind, but where Eva's emotional center was one of human yearning so poignant as to break one's heart, Melinda's emotional center here is of the giddy feelings of first love; not a childish fantasy, but a mature appreciation of having the self-confidence to lose oneself in another.

Of all the American Idol contestants, Melinda Doolittle has been my favorite. I knew she wouldn't win with her sophisticated song stylings, but I also knew she had a voice we could be listening to for the next century...something like a modern day Gladys Knight or Ella Fitzgerald. So I have been looking forward to her first album for some time.

First, let may say everything is beautifully sung and I still believe she could become a musical legend. However, I hate to say the choice of songs left me cold. I would have much preferred an album of standards like her brilliant interpretation of Roger and Hart's "My Funny Valentine." A voice of this power and ability needs proven songs that can stand up to it and this mediocre collection of undistinguished R&B numbers simply does not.

I waited so long for this CD and was so afraid I would be disappointed since I was with David Archuleta and somewhat with David Cook's CDs. How wonderful to be entertained royally by Melinda - I knew there was a reason I voted for her all the way through - I sincerely love this CD and even more so, I hope she will put out more CD's with the Blues sound as well as some love ballads - she has done a great job on this CD and I will be awaiting more music for her - she was the winner of the season for my money and this CD is just proof of what a great voice she has - Good for you, Melinda - stand proud - this is a great CD with some really interesting song choices.

A stellar debut, perhaps one of the best I have ever heard.

Every song is executed with verve and with the deepest commitment to interpretations of the music that deftly connects, heart and soul, so essentially to the lyric.

The proof is in the impressive emotional range of Melinda's performances as she captures the feeling of being overwhelmed by love (Wonder Why), tenderness (I'll Never Stop Loving You), inspiration (We Will Find a Way), resilience and defiance (Dust My Broom, Walkin Blues), passion (It's Your Love, The Best of Everything), strength and perseverance (I Will Be), and longing (If I'm Not in Love).

It's all here, as it should be, in music rooted, deeply, in the rhythms of soul, rock, doo wop, blues and jazz. There's a depth to Melinda's singing that is rare to find in any artist, let alone one of her generation. The jazz interpretive, Wonder Why, impresses beyond belief as Melinda's colorful key changes and phrasing are impeccable; it's a song that reminisces the power of a love so transformative, it makes you cry.

It's no coincidence the CD is released the week before Valentine's Day. Get it for someone you love, someone who has lost a love, someone who wants to find love. No matter where you are in the matters of the heart, there's an emotion here that will speak to you.

Yes, I've been waiting for this CD to come out since Melinda was voted off Idol......she's been the best contestant ever.......PERIOD. On the male retro soul side, I'd have to go with James Hunter.
