I really love this CD ! Maysa has one of the most unique and incredible voices out there today, and this CD really highlights just how talented this true singer and vocalist is. Favorites of mine include "Flower Girl" , " Day N Night", "Motions of Love", "When It's Over", "I Try", and " Your Name's not on the List". Get this CD, you won't be disappointed....Gary B. in Atlanta

This New School generation seem to think that the term "Real" Music is basically R&B music that isn't "Rap" related which is further from truth.

Sad to think that today's artists like Beyonce, Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, R. Kelly, & Etc. is the epitome the radio industry provides as "Real" Music but yet neglecting artists like Lalah Hathaway, Will Downing, Ledisi, Kem and Maysa.

Maysa Leak simply known as "Maysa" has released her 9th studio project entitled "Motions Of Love" and is virtually unknown in the Texas Panhandle but she's the former lead singer of the British Nu jazz group "Incognito"
This powerhouse vocalist from Baltimore, Md has a lil combination of Lalah Hathaway & Sade with a smooth blend of R&B & Smooth Jazz.

My outtake on "Real" Music is simply music that has range, dynamics, orchestration and musical dexterity and with "Motions Of Love" you will hear all of that.

My favorite cuts are "Come Dance With Me", "Flower Girl" f/ Dwele, "You Won't Find Your Way", "When It's Over"/(Reprise)" & The remake cover of Angela Bofill's "I Try"

I also like "Motions Of Love", "Love Sweet Love (LSL)", "Hold On" & "Special Place"

So if you like "Real" Music or shall I say "Real" Grown folks music then don't sleep on this project.

I was first introduced to the sound of Maysa by my ex-husband, way back when she sang with Incognito. Since than I have had the pleasure of listening to her live in concert at Morgan's Fine arts center, and have purchased many of her Cd's from Amazon. This CD is an extension of her talent. I loved it and suggest that you buy it. I will not single out a particular song because all of them are just that wonderful. If you haven't been a Maysa fan before, I'm betting that after listening to this Cd "Motions of love", you will become a true fan, as am I.

It seems that Maysa has gone full circle. If you have all her recordings then you would know what I am referring to. Motions of Love captures a freshness that we heard in her debut cd. It's not to say that everything else was subpar because they aren't. Each cd up until this point has been a nice journey into Maysa's world. She's given us scat, hints of jazz, and killer vocals. Motions of Love you hear a happiness, funky, and free feeling form of rhythm and blues. It makes me want to skip up and down the street as if there was a soul train line on my block. Definitely add this to your collection.

Maysa is a truly gifted and amazingly talented musician. Her sound transcends jazz, blues, R&B, Neo Soul, gospel, and I'm sure I'm leaving out a genre or two. I think this is her most compelling solo effort to date. And that's difficult to say because all of her work, both as a solo artist and as a collaborator, has been compelling.

The title track is Maysa at her finest. It is a soulful ballad featuring all of the emotion and vocal prowess Maysa is known for. Flower Girl (featuring Dwele) is a simply wonderfully produced, beautifully executed piece of artistry. The arrangement is superb with carefully layered vocals, the harmonies are tight and intricate, and the instrumentation, including some fine keyboard playing (with some organ weaved in), is maticulous and flawless. I could go on and on about each of the tracks but I think it would be best to discover the magic of Motions of Love for yourself.

If you are a fan of good music, this is a must have!! I didn't think it would be possible but Maysa has outdone herself - AGAIN!!

Let me first say, Maysa's voice is rich and beautiful, as always. Didn't care for the cutesy "flight" stuff -- annoying (skippable)

1. Flower Girl -Gorgeous, head-bobable, danceable.
2. Motions Of Love - emotionally moving
3. Won't Find
4. I Try - Powerful cover of a great song by a great songstress

Honestly? The rest is f-i-l-l-e-r. I wish she had used better material for the rest of her album. I feel kinda used as a fan.

This lady ROCKS! End of story. I have followed her since she sung with Incognito and I have purchased everything she has done. This CD is amazing! She has brought back something that is missing from mainstream music today... PURE RAW TALENT.. Purchase this CD and you won't be disappointed. EVERY track is on fire! Her voice is just incredible and the music she chose on this CD is a perfect compliment. It's grown folks sexy and smooth! I can't stop listening to it.
