The minute I listed to "Rhythm and Blues", I was mentally taken right back to Bourbon Street. The sounds are are fresh and fun. My body did not stop swaying the whole time I was listening and I could literally picture myself in a nightclub listening to these amazing artists. The voices were soothing and the instrumental blend was nothing short of outstanding. The artists' passion for this soulful music was evident in every song. If you are a fan of rhythm and blues, I would highly recommend adding this CD to your music collection. If you are not a fan, you just may be after listening!
Win it here: Putumayo World Music was nice enough to offer one of my lucky readers a copy of this incredible CD!
