Michael Buble: Crazy Love

Check Our Catalog “Michael Bublé is a master at juggling musical attitudes, and his new CD, “Crazy Love,” whose title comes from the Van Morrison song, is his most confident balancing act yet.

Teena Marie: Congo Square

Check Our Catalog “Inspired by discovering that some of her family roots are in New Orleans, a city with which she has long felt a deep spiritual connection, Teena Marie frames Congo Square around the Crescent City. It’s her third solid album of the decade. Like her two prior albums, Congo Square is a long, [...]

Check Our Catalog “While Young’s sound is firmly in the contemporary country camp, it’s also a lot more hardcore honky tonk than it is refried ’70s rock clichés that plague the genre. Part of that is due to his big booming baritone voice that rings as clear as a bell in this mix. The Man [...]
