The Sounds of Blackness: The Night Before Christmas...A Musical Fantasy (A&M 549 000-2)

Jeff Lorez, Blues & Soul, 1 December 1992

A SOUNDS OF Blackness album really is something of a musical adventure. This, as with the first is an exploration into the history and development of black American music, covering traditional gospel, blues, jazz, 60's Stax-like soul (on the revue type 'Holiday Love') to current day breaks and loops on the Jam & Lewis co-produced and written single 'Soul Holidays'.
