After hearing "Black Gold," I have been patiently waiting for the full Radio Music Society to drop...and boy was this worth the wait. The flow, the music.....her voice -- this is pure perfection. I highly recommend buying this, grab a glass of wine, head out on your deck/patio and let the genius that is Esperanza flow out of your speakers. May she continue to be rewarded for her creativity....and may we be rewarded by enjoying and embracing her creativity.
In her last album "Chamber Music Society", smart jazzy-licks combine with the pomp and baroque of classical sweeping highs. It was a work of genius and she really crossed a line no one had successfully done before. She brought the most structured and rule-bound style of music that we know today and what is often considered the most loose, least-regimented and open style and made a whole album of delights.
So how does she follow? "Radio Music Society".
Modern R&B, jazz, pop, and soul all mixed into a perfect set of tracks. Did she do any insane bendings of genres here? maybe not. But the WAY she combined them was sooooooo just....sensual and sweet. The whole album honestly feels like listening to the radio with all the various tunes that seem so different but still slightly connected. The flow is beyond perfect.
I honestly have had this album playing back-to-back on a few roadtrips and every time it just feels good. Whenever I know I need to change things up, I go to this album and probably have it going in the car for two weeks (as a musician, any album lasting over 2-3 days has got to be phenomenal. I play bass, and I hate repitition when I am LISTENING to music, so it says a lot that this album stayed in the car so long every time!)
What am I telling you? buy this album. As she says in the album," this song's the one to get your spirit groovin!"
it'll get you, you're gonna get hooked
This album is more akin to the lighter feel and style of her hit album ESPERANZA and less similar to her straight jazz and 'Chamber Music'/ jazz structured albums. This album is intended to reflect her more romantic (and romanticized) rhythm/ blues/ pop sensibilities rather than present her incredibly strong roots influenced music (original jazz, classical and chamber music genres.) This album helps to further her vast musical interests and influences without being a phony "covers" album or crossover recording. In addition, the self-produced music videos that she made for each song make the DELUXE EDITION an incredible offering that only heightens the wonderful musical experience.
This album, from beginning to end, is a languid respite on a breeze filled spring day. Whether on a stress-filled commute to and from work, or whether swaying in a hammock among the Spanish Moss filled southern oak trees with cardinals and mockingbirds chirping along... this album is the anecdote for all of the tensions and turmoils of modern day.Read more ›
