Lee Fields & The Expressions – My World (2009) – heard their soulful, beautiful sound for the first time on Jazz FM UK (this radio station is a great tool to discover soulful music).
Kylie Auldist – Made of Stone (Tru Thoughts, 2009) – also heard her music first on Jazz FM UK; she has a new album coming out this fall. For similar artists, I recommend browsing her label’s website, Tru Thoughts UK.
From the vault:
Frank Zappa – Tinseltown Rebellion (1981)
Glenn Gould – Bach: Goldberg Variations (the 1981 recording at age 50, shortly before dying; there is another one aged 22)
