Received this CD yesterday, and have listened to it in its entirety 6 times since then. I am KNOCKED OUT by how much I am enjoying this album! 13 tracks, 11 of which were written or co-written by either Peter Michael Escovedo III, Juan Escovedo, or Sheila E. The E Family has found what I think is a perfect blend of great R&B & pop, but have still kept their Latin sound in every song on this disc. The music is uptempo, without the ridiculous booming bass-beats. Great rhythms, great songwriting, and great musicianship, something that today's R&B and pop music is sorely missing.

1. I Take It Back (Feat. Wes Quave & Gloria Estefan)
2. I LIke It (Feat. Peter Michael Escovedo III & Sheila E)
3. Nothing Without You (Feat. Sheila E)
4. The Other Half Of Me (Feat. Joss Stone, with Raphael Saadiq & George Duke)
5. Do What It Do (Feat. Dominic Escovedo)
6. Peace and Joy (Feat. Philip Bailey, with Verdine White & Ralph Johnson)
7. Praise His Name (Feat. Peter Michael Escovedo III)
8. Nina (Feat. Pete Escovedo)
9. All Around (Feat. Israel Houghton)
10. It's Gonna Make You Dance (Feat. Pete Escovedo)
11. The J (Feat. Juan Escovedo)
12. Get Out of My Way (Feat. Damon Castillo)
13. Live Percussion Jam (Feat. Peter Michael Escovedo III & Sheila E)

Tracks 7 and 9 are the two gospel tracks on the album, and they may very well be the two best tracks on the album. The only downtempo number is track 8, Nina. Other than that, this is a fun, uptempo album that anybody could enjoy, young & old alike. Great job E Family!!!

The saying goes "the family that plays together stays together". If that's the case, and I certainly believe it is true, the Escovedo family has nothing to worry about. Now & Forever by the E Family is a musical celebration of many genres (salsa, R&B, soul, spiritual, dance) with a number of guest performers.

There's probably about 2-3 songs on this CD that I really like. And, only "I Like It" is the one song I play over and over and over on "repeat" in my car, the lead vocal reminds me of Lionel Richie. Joss Stone performs one of the songs but it's not strong vocals compared to some of her past hits like "Jet Lag". It's an OK album for me.

Already a fan of Latin-jazz timbalero Pete Escovedo and the powerful musicianship of his daughter Sheila E., I looked forward to this CD featuring the entire E Family. I must say that I was pleased with it. It is not an all one genre affair, so be prepared to hear a mix of all types of music. The stand-out favorites for me are the solid r&b "The Other Half Of Me" featuring Joss Stone on lead vocals, the laid back, feel good hit song "I Like It" which is beyond catchy, and the hip-hop flavored "Do What It Do" which features 3 generations of E's. How many families can do that successfully? Others that I like include "Peace and Joy" featuring Earth, Wind & Fire (Wow!), "I Take It Back" featuring Gloria Estefan and both of the gospel flavored songs "All Around" with Israel Houghton and "Praise His Name". The percussion interlude "The J" and "It's Gonna Make You Dance" show more Latin influence and I like them too. On the flipside, perhaps it would have been nice if more E's sang on this CD instead of other vocalists. But, the E Family is a family of musicians and they did play all over this one. If you don't mind a wide spectrum of music, give it a try! Buy this CD and feel it out for yourself. And, if you can, go see them perform live and I guarantee you will be blown away. A family that plays together, stays together... now and forever!

I was excited when I learned that the "E" family had an album out because I have always
liked Sheila and dad Pete. I was curious what they would come up with as a family. There
are some nice beats and grooves, but it somehow seemed unfinished or unpolished. I like it
but, I don't love it. It has enough songs that I like to make the purchase worth it, but
I just can't put my finger on what's wrong with it. I loved Gloria Estaban but wasn't crazy
about Earth, Wind & Fire's contribution. Overall, it is an okay effort. I'm looking forward
to their next endeavor.

You can clearly hear from listening to this CD the amount of musical professionalism that oozes from each member of the E Family. This album of full of energy, uplifting beats and positivity. It truly is an Escoveda family effort. Each family members figures prominently on the album. The single "I Like It," invokes feelings of smooth Summer-time cruising. "Peace and Joy," featuring Earth, Wind and Fire is pure jam session. "Praise His Name," is sure to lift up Christian. The final "Live Percussion Jam," really lets you see how much this family enjoys what they do and performing together. I've listened to this album countless times and never get tired of it.
