J.W.J. “One”

A big fat modern soul record here. Finally. You don’t hear too much straightforward, no frills R & B these days, so this was a bit of an ear catcher. Lyrically, it’s as simple as can be, and features some classic, old school, desperate, heart on the sleeve (yet romantic) begging, via J.W.J’s majestic voice. As an added bonus, if you are a 90’s soul geek like me it’ll trigger memories of underrated troubadours Will Downing  and Tashan, and can’t pay a higher compliment than that.
