Editorial Reviews

Gemini Soul's double CD Dark Skin Babies : The Movement is a mind-blowing mixture of experimental jazz funk-fusion. Gemini Soul delivers a brand new sound with this double CD. Musically influenced by the 70's jazz fusion explosion and inspired by artists such as Herbie Hancock, Return To Forever, MeShell Ndegeocello and Parliament-Funkadelic.

Dark Skin Babies : The Movement from Gemini Soul is a two CD set, which contains 20 tracks of non-stoppable experimental jazz funk-fusion at its best. Dark Skin Babies : The Movement is the follow-up to their 2008 release The Nefertiti Xperience. With all songs produced, arranged and composed by Andre Ajamu Akinyele, bandleader and bassist, this marks as their fifth album. This is Gemini Soul's most political and social conscience collection to date.

Dark Skin Babies : The Movement features three cover songs by some revolutionary artists such as MeShell Ndegeocello's Al-Falaq 113; Herbie Hancock's Chameleon; and Prince's All The Critics Love You In New York. Gemini Soul makes each song their own by infusing what they call The Cyber Jazz Sound.

Gemini Soul, which consists of Andre Ajamu Akinyele (bass, programming), Jon O'Bergh (piano, keyboards), Andrew Foster (percussion) and Alex Marks (drums) have expanded once again by adding special guest Waahid Jones on saxophone and additional percussion. Ajamu Akinyele states...I feel this album will be appreciated by lovers of real music without boundaries…artists and likeminded individuals who think outside the box.

Disc 1 has more of an experimental Latin jazz fusion flavor with songs like Reparation, Dark Skin Babies : New Vibe, and Finger Print; whereas Disc 2 has more of a 70's jazz funk vibe with songs like Right On, Barack & Michelle, and The Movement Pts. 1 & 2. Don't be surprised if you have one fist in the air by the end of the album.

This album isn't just creatively innovative, but spectacular from beginning to end. Gemini Soul's Cyber Jazz is here to stay and they continue to redefine jazz for a new generation. Gemini Soul's music isn't your typical jazz; it's Cyber Jazz!

I came across this band actually by listening to other cds on Amazon. Just as I get ready to check-out, I see their recommendations. Upon that, I listened to not only Gemini Soul, but the leader and Bass player. Some would say it is the same old stuff, Funk-fusion-pop a variety not really focused. I however liked the first one, then I ordered everthing I could find on Amazon from this band. This is how I came about Liquid Soul as well. Amazon , in my opinion does a good job of trying to find other cds/dvds one might like. When you listen, many times you make a good connection which can get costly. If you like the samples, I am pretty sure you will like the discs.
