Sidney Jacobs: If I Were Your Woman

Read "If I Were Your Woman" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci


Take a deep breath. Whether or not Sidney Jacobs came up with the somewhat offbeat title of this album (originally the property of Gladys Knight and the Pips) is irrelevant. What would matter is that there is a clear line of sonic and stylistic descent from Al Jarreau to Jacobs. Fans of Jarreau's style are going to enjoy Jacobs.

Read "Luna" reviewed by Peter J. Hoetjes


When viewed retrospectively, a musician's first release is often more telling of where they have been than of where they are going.
