Editorial Reviews

D'Angelo debuted in 1995, hailed as the new sound of soul, a genius singer-songwriter soul man in the tradition of Stevie Wonder, Prince, Curtis Mayfield, et al. His Virgin/EMI album Brown Sugar, along with the hit title song and a smash cover of Smokey Robinson's 'Cruisin', proved the hype was right.
It's generally thought that the artist's next album was Voodoo, released in 2000. In between, however, fans were treated to a six-track EP: Live At The Jazz Café, London, in October 1996 but in Japan only. The record, recorded in Setpember '95 during a rare U.K. promo tour, proved hard to come by and became an instant collector's item.
This new release of Live At The Jazz Café, London is not only the first domestic release of the album, it contains the complete show for the first time anywhere. Now included are four unreleased performances - three of them covers of tracks originally by D'Angelo influences Mandrill, Ohio Players and Al Green - plus a longer version of 'Lady'. This edition also places all of the tracks in the correct sequence for the first time, as they were performed in a sweaty club when 'D' was on the cusp of stardom.
The package uses the original cover artwork of the Japanese release, but inside is an exclusive new essay by Alan Leeds, of D'Angelo's management team, who is also known for his tenure with artists ranging from James Brown to Chris Rock. Included as well is an English translation of the original Japanese liner notes, which include a brief 1995 interview with D'Angelo.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a night... June 26, 2002
By MarcusD
Format:Audio CD
London's Jazz Cafe will rarely (if ever) experience the vibe of D'Angelo's one off show on September 14th 1995 again.
The intimate, sold-out venue was bursting at the walls in expectation of the new kid on the block. Widely hailed as the "Saviour of Soul", his debut album that year "Brown Sugar" had received massive critical acclaim now the stage was set for the live performance. He lived up to the hype...
With a superb, proficient band the organic, soulful pomp of his idols was captured with ease. Also check for one Angie Stone on backing vox.
The only non-album track performed here is Earth Wind & Fire's classic "Can't Hide Love" which he does full justice, not unlike the familiar cover version of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'".
The other three singles ("Dreamin Eyes", "Brown Sugar" and "Lady") are all featured here and the show is magical. The only downside being it's incomplete and rather short. Anyone who heard the full radio broadcast from which the tracks are culled knows this is only around half the show.
Why couldn't more CD space be used on the actual concert? Why is a worthy yet unrelated live version of "Heaven Must Be Like This" (Down In The Delta OST) included instead? The answers remain a mystery.
Never mind, cast those issues aside for a minute and buy this CD. When the music's this good, we can forget minor quibbles over tracklistings and indulge in what we've been given.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brown Sugar got me open and now I want some mo!! January 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I just got this CD as a present and damn if it didn't have me logging on to Amazon.com doing a search for D'Angelo and crossing my fingers hoping that there would be a new release listed for him.
I've seen "D" live more recently for the Voodoo album and he's EXCELLENT. I'm even more in awe by this live session because he was somewhat new to the scene. In my opinion the true talent of an artist is how well he or she performs live, having made that statement he's is truly talented much like Prince is so awesome live, so is Babyface, so is Me'shell NdegeOcello; get the picture. But I digress... buy this CD and I guarantee you it will stay in heavy rotation and you'll be logging onto Amazon.com hoping like I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love-test this CD tonight, it is too sexy for words! December 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is CD is absolutely worth the import price tag. Do not hesitate, after all, you only live once. D'Angelo is ahead of his time, and talented beyond words. His back-up singers here (and this was recorded back in 1995) are Angie Stone and Karen Bernod, both established artists in their own right today. I can't say enough about this CD, having listened to it non-stop for a week.
Just buy it! It will tide you over until his next release.

By Nathan
Format:Audio CD
I'm a longtime fan of D'Angelo, an' I gotta say that I'm appalled that this is no longer widely available in the States. But let me tell you this, even though this is a costly purchase, if you a die-hard fan of this man then this is a must-have. I may have never even known about it, if I hadn't been going through a record store one day and stumbled across it. This show was recorded at the Jazz Cafe in London on September 14, 1995, back when he was a hungry 21-year-old just starting out, and slowly building his reputation as an astounding talent.
Here on this all-too brief, but exhilerating set, he lays it on thick with jazzy jams and bootylicious funky R&B, proving himself to be one of the most underrated live performers out there. He brings the house down with excellent versions of Earth, Wind & Fire's 'Can't Hide Love', Smokey Robinson's 'Crusin' and The Ohio Players' 'Heaven Must Be Like This', and coaxes out extended sultry vamps from his band on the show-stopping 'Lady' and an epic 10-minute-plus version of 'Brown Sugar' on which he borrows from the classic James Brown toolbag of techniques - teasing the audience with false endings, slowly building on the subtle organ playing and drumming, gradually fading out each instrument, before bringing it back for one final sha-bang of funky soulful musical jabs. I could listen to the "I want some of your brown sugar - Oohooh" refrain forever.
The only minor criticism I have about this disc is that his set, while excellent, is too brief, and leaves you hungry for more. But, that's neither here nor there, because this is still a great showcase of one of the best soul singers this side'a Marvin's grave.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Live Album of the 90's October 20, 2004
By beezo
Format:Audio CD
This the best live album that I have ever purchased and probably my favorite album ever. My complaint is, just like I read from another reviewer, this cd is too short. This is a special performance from a special musician. If you love live music this is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars D'Angelo continues to transcend contemporary R&B! June 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Once again, D'Angelo has given us what we have been waiting for. This live version of his fantastic Brown Sugar album was a refreshing and remarkable gift for avid fans like myself. For musicians who appreciate REAL instruments and live music, also like myself, then this is the epitome of both. D'Angelo even throws caution to the wind to cover the Earth, Wind and Fire hit, "You Can't Hide Love" and does the piece justice in my opinion. This is a great CD to have in your collection, in fact, I couldn't wait for the U.S. release so I had is shipped from Japan. It was definitely worth it!!!!!

Not the best execution I've ever heard. The songs are good, just not a convincing performance. If this was the best gig on the tour, then it was a rough tour. Read more
