My Top 5 Records of the Year

Weather by Meshell Ndegeocello

Meshell NdegeocelloWeather – (Naïve)

Artists like Ndegeocello are very rare. I never know exactly what to expect but she always delivers the goods. Regardless of style, she always sounds like herself.

Deep Blue Organ TrioDeep Blue Organ TrioWonderful!– (Origin)

Hearing Bobby Broom (my favourite guitar player on the scene today) tackle a selection of Stevie Wonder classics is a real treat. Here we have some great musicians delivering some great songs.

Rahael SaadiqRaphael Saadiq – Stone Rollin’(Columbia)

Raphael Saadiq’s old school soul sensibilities always sound hip and fresh. A cameo appearance by Larry Graham is also a nice surprise.

Bela Fleck and the FlecktonesBela Fleck & the FlecktonesRocket Science – (E One)

The original lineup reunites to deliver Rocket Science. In my opinion, it’s their best album since 1992’s UFO TOFU.

Mr. BigWhat If - (Frontiers)

Mr BigOne of my favourite albums of the early 90’s was Lean Into It. The original lineup reunited to record What If. This is a really solid album that brought me back to my rock roots. This was my favourite driving album of the year.
