Maxwell- The Lady Suite

It's checkout time.

Where art thou, Maxwell? And what's going on with D'Angelo? Maxwell hasn't issued new material in five years, and D'Angelo last released new material in 2000. Luther's gone, John Legend just doesn't feel right and Anthony Hamilton can't carry the load all by himself. Hurry up, already! Maxwell recalls the mature Marvin and the romantic Prince on this MTV Unplugged disc from 1997.

I check in with Oleta Adams here and I review Ani DiFranco's Monday night concert here.

I'm a big fan of the skronk featured at Destination Out. Don't miss a guy from the Bad Plus writing about my favorite Henry Threadgill album.

You're such a knowledgable guy about music and your love for it undiminshed. You can be an aging character and still find to go out, sometimes solo, and then come back and report on it in an honest manner. I am glad Mr. Finn is giving you plenty of 'special to the star' space and letting you review with creditabilty so much. It is not an easy job, but you accomplish it with aplomb and then some. Your sir, are a fine writer.

Yer pal, m&s

Thanks, m&s. Andre Williams tonight! And aren't we all, really, "aging characters" in some fashion? T

Man, he is and still is a great singer! Well, you might already know this but he's coming out with a new album in Feb 2007. Check out his myspace page at
