Editorial Reviews

Silky Soul Music is the brainchild of Frankie Beverly1s son, Anthony, who is serving as the project1s executive and co-producer. Beverly developed the idea to properly honor his father1s contributions to the music industry in a way that has never been done before. It is the first and only album recognizing Beverly and Maze1s nearly 40-year career including 12 albums and 30 hit singles. The 10 songs selected for the CD represent some of Maze and Frankie Beverly1s greatest hits. Featured are a host of Grammy Award winning and nominated gold and platinum-selling artists in R&B and Gospel, including Joe, Kevon Edmonds, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi, Mint Condition, Raheem DeVaughn, and the Clark Sisters.

I've been a fan of Maze for years, and this collection of classics from their catalog are given an amazingly current, yet fantastically faithful redo. WOW. Tribute albums are typically hit-and-miss for the most part, but this collection produced by Frankie Beverly's talented son Anthony, are every bit as good as the original - showcasing just how classic they truly are. HIGHLY recommended!

I have saw Maze perform about 12 times and each time was fresh. Never throught anybody could do Joy & Pain as good as Maze, but brother Avant did a excellent job. The whole CD is great minus 1. Mint Conditon song did not fit to me.It wasn't as smooth as the other tracks. I like the Mint, but they were not right for this CD, no disrespect to the Mint. Love the Soulchild steppers version of Silky Soul. Sounds like Soulchild is singing from the heart about Frankie as Frankie sang about Marvin. If you like Maze this CD is a keeper. Looking forward to next tribute to Frankie. It's got to be a Part 2. One God One Aim One Destiny

This is by far the best salute album I have heard in years. However, the weakest song on this cd is Mary J. Blige's version of "Before I Let Go". I have to skip over that each time. My favorite song is "Never Let You Down" by Kevond Edmonds.

I was not expecting this to be a good CD...after all, who can do Frankie better than, or as good as Frankie? But I was very pleasantly surprised by this collection as each artist (all very skilled and true artists) made each track their own. They made them new again. The songs kept their original flavor, while bringing something new, whether it was singing in a different key, adding harmonies, adding riffs, or giving the song a new feel. My favorite was Kevon Edmonds' rendition of "Never Let You Down." It was so good, I think that might have to be my wedding song someday! Kem's rendering of "Golden Time of Day" sent chills down my spine. I loved the new feel added to Musiq's "Silky Soul" and "I Wanna Thank You" with The Clark Sisters. Raheem DeVaughn knocked me out with his vocals on "We Are One," and Ledisi proved why she is a true artist and a powerful singer on "Happy Feelins." Mint Condition, the only band on the LP, turned in a solid performance that paid tribute to the old while making it new, while Joe and Avant were smooth on their tracks. The only track I wasn't impressed with was Mary J. Blige's "Before I Let Go." That's a hard song to remake and have people accept, but Mary didn't even sound like she was trying. But the song is not unbearable. This CD was so good, I HAD to write a review!

As a huge fan of Frankie Beverly & Maze I was doubtful if anyone could do a good job with their songs. This cd is fantastic! They picked the right performers for each song. I have to say I like the entire cd!! I would highly recommend it

This tribute CD is a cut above the many generic sounding tribute CDs out these days. The music and vocals are faithful to the REAL SILKY SOUL sound that Maze is known for. For me, the money track is by Ledisi. Her rendering of "Happy Feelings" is just not good but, damn good. Midway through the song, Ledisi sounds as if she's channeling Stephanie Mills' memorable style of vocal delivery.
A prime assembly of talent was brought together for this project. Musiq Souchild, Mary J Blige, Avant, Kem and others really bring it! Frank Beverly's son produced what is a great soulful homage to his dad. The only thing better is the original songs as Frank & his posse recorded and continually perform live.

I am a great fan of Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. To listen to this CD was just wonderful.
What amazes me is, Did the selected artists' choose said songs or were the songs selected for them? Such a great compilation of talented singers. A great tribute in their honor. Both hands up!!!!
