Vanessa Fernandez – Use Me (2014) [AcousticSounds 24-176,4]

“Tasty as is the back-up band and are the outstanding acoustic arrangements, Ms. Fernandez steals the show with a voice that is as unlikely as her cover photo would have you thinking “funky black chick”. She’s no poseur though. If you have any such notions start with side 3’s opener, a cover of Bill Withers’ ‘Use Me,’ which is from where the album gets it title.” — Music = 10/11; Sound = 11/11 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com.

Singapore-based vocalist Vanessa Fernandez, 31, has performed hip-hop (Urban Xchange/Parking Lot Pimp) and been a DJ “Vandetta,” or “Miss Vandetta” on Mediacorp Radio’s 987FM. Groove Note and ORG reissue producer Ying Tan decided that Fernandez deserved the audiophile recording treatment and so brought her to Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles in mid-January 2014 to record this album to analog tape in five sessions.

Fernandez covers Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes and others in an album filled with funky grooves provided by a stellar back-up band anchored by bassist Leland Sklar, with session guitarist Tim Pierce (Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Patti Smith, Joe Cocker, Michael Jackson) drummer Victor Indrizzo (Scott Weiland, Chris Cornell) keyboardist Jim Cox (Lyle Lovett, Mark Knopfler, B.B. King) and others.

The album of audiophile-quality covers of soul and R&B classics from the ’70s and ’80s was done in an “unplugged” style with acoustic instruments and arrangements used on all of the tracks. Vocals are tremendously dynamic (no compression or limiting used), with superb presence and detail for all other instruments including the drum set.

The album introduces and throws the spotlight on the fantastic voice of the Singaporean vocalist Fernandez. The song selection includes tunes by Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, Earth Wind & Fire, Bill Withers, Al Green and others. Now available for Digital Download!

This is a great group of top LA musicians backing superlative performances by a great new singer!!!

The Manhattans – With These Hands {Expanded Version} (1970/2016) [HDTracks 24-96]

The Manhattans – With These Hands {Expanded Version} (1970/2016)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96kHz | Time – 00:55:32 minutes | 1,2 GB | Genre: R&B

Life after Carnival Records finds the Manhattans recording for the Deluxe label, where they cut some charmers. George “Smitty” Smith had polished his God-given, captivating, crying tenor into an instrument that ranked with the greats. With These Hands is the closest the Manhattans came to recording an album of standards or pop material. The album’s ten songs consist of five standards and five cold-blooded originals. You can’t help but feel the aching pain in “It’s Gonna Take a Lot to Bring Me Back,” a minor R&B hit that had major potential; the slow weeper oozes soul. “Give Him Up” displays the quintet’s lovely uptempo harmony; the shuffler unfortunately got lost as a B-side. The tear jerking “If My Heart Could Speak” is a slow, tenderly sung ballad and one of their best. Winnie Lovett, Kenny Kelly, Ernest Bivens and Richard Taylor provides splendid backing to Smitty’s lead on “People Get Ready,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and the title track, all ably arranged by Chico O’Farrill. ~~Review by Andrew Hamilton

Another addition to the Manhattans’ bulging cache of mellow sounds. Gerald Alston, Winnie Lovett, Ernest Bivens and Kenny Kelly made a career of recording romance, heartache and make-out tunes. The popular “We Never Danced to a Love Song” fits in well with their other ballads, as does the majestic “It Just Can’t Stay this Way” and “Let’s Start All Over Again.” They hit the charts with the somewhat contrived “I Kinda Miss You,” and the title track, the eloquent “It Feels So Good to Be Loved So Bad” is classic – the harmony is tight and they add a little doo wop for good measure. You can’t go wrong with any Manhattan album; they give their fans what they want, and never do they offend or alienate them by recording and releasing something out of character. ~~Review by Andrew Hamilton
