Joanna Teters Speaks On Her Band ‘Mad Satta’ & Their Performance During The Atlanta Jazz Festival (Video)

The 38th annual Atlanta Jazz Festival went down Memorial Day Weekend 2015 from historical Piedmont Park.  3 days of great music with talented artists from all over the US and the World performing for thousands of Jazz fans here in Atlanta, GA.  The opening night had only two acts the headliner Thundercat and the opening act Mad Satta.  If you are not familiar with Mad Satta they are a group out of NYC that have horns, keyboard, and bass players and a front lady named Joanna Teters on vocals.  They made their Atlanta debut and immediately had the crowd’s attention with their soulful original music.  They also did a classic Curtis Mayfield cover of “The Makings of You” that had the crowd asking to know more about them.  Well if you didn’t make their performance no worries the video below has live footage from their show along with an interview by ArtByOdell with Joanna Teters.

R&B/Soul: Jesse Boykins III – “Our Tonight is Mine” (Video)

A lot of R&B these days is non quality.  I like my R&B singers to not sound like rappers and Jesse Boykins III is still making good R&B.  The thing is you can have sensual lyrics without telling a lady “Pull your panties to the side & Drop it to the floor” , what you mostly hear on the radio these days. Well the track “Our Tonight is Mine” off Jesse’s Love Apparatus album talks to the ladies in a subtle but sexy way.  The video features Jesse Boykins and Swedish model Amanda Looma while all of this takes place in the car in a parking garage.  I know Jesse is happy with the director because he gets to kiss and feel on a hot swedish model while singing to her.  Wait a minute just checked the credits video Written & Directed by Jesse Boykins III (Well played Jesse, well played) Parking Lot Loving!

R&B/Soul: Stacy Barthe – ‘Angel’

It’s not every day a relatively new artist can successfully execute a remake of a classic song. Stacy Barthe is not your everyday singer & songwriter so I knew she would kill this cover of one of Anita Baker’s signature records. I’m definitely a fan of Stacy Barthe’s music so it’s a dope surprise she has more amazing work coming with her first official major release. She’s signed to John Legend’s new label ‘Homeschool’ & the new project ‘BEcoming’ due next year in 2015. Check out snippets of the upcoming album after the jump below….

R&B: Phil Beaudreau – “Anyway” (Video)

Phil Beaudreau continues to impress me with his music ever since I’ve been following his work. In fact, this song ‘Anyway’ produced by Dawaun Parker off of Mr. Beaudreau’s new full-length project “Ether” that’s available now, I first heard in January of 2013. It’s about time the L.A. based singer dropped a visual clip to further propel awareness of his talent as supporters like myself have been playing his music on my radio show & posting various joints up on various websites.  Nothing too crazy extravagant with this Charley Mac & Phil Beaudreau self-directed video but even in its minimalism, just like the song itself, it doesn’t take much to really hit home.

Rapsody x Love Ultra Radio

Rapsody Interview with DJ Jah Prince

During this episode we talk with Rapsody about some of our favorite songs featured on Love Ultra including key cuts from her album ‘The Idea Of Beautiful’. We question her about rappers who touch social issues & politics in their rhymes, her being influenced by the mighty Zulu Nation and the tight family known as ‘It’s A Wonderful World Music Group’. We hear a real soulful North Carolina hip hop album showcasing her unique style, touching briefly on her great association with producer 9th Wonder and get to the bottom of how the track ‘Fly Girl Power’ with Estelle came about.

R&B: Mario – “Killa”

R&B singer Mario is prepping to drop a new mixtape & what will be his 5th album. If this new single “Killa” produced by @GlassJohn is any indication of just what he’ll have on the project then I’m sure it’ll be a winner.  Shout out to all the ladies with that Killa you-know-what.


R&B/Soul: Res – “On The Radio” (Donna Summer Cover)

Philly native Res has done plenty of great work that often gets overlooked by mainstream audiences. Her 2001 debut album “How I Do” STILL gets significant run from me in my itunes. In addition to serving as 1/2 of the group Idle Warship with Talib Kweli, the soul/funk/rock songstress appears to keep busy by dropping new material whenever the timing is right. With the recent passing of the legendary Donna Summer back in May of this year, I assume Res didn’t quite fall victim to the music industry tactic of artists releasing waves of hastily recorded tributes that far too often seem to be self serving to capitalize on a moment. This Danophonic produced house music remake of Donna Summer’s 1979 classic “On The Radio” sounds nothing like the original,  but that’s also a part of charm of Res’s remake & what makes this remix of sorts sound so special.  Res put her own creative spin on the classic & I’m positive Donna Summer would appreciate how it feels like Res took her time with it & genuinely executed the classic in her own creative flavor. This remix needs some love “On The Radio”…

Estelle – ‘Thank You’ (Video)

Gotta salute Estelle with this video as we see some candid shots of this soulful singer and her life on tour. Cameos in the end included the wicked producer Jazzwad, celebrity dancer John Hype, Beenie Man, Patexx, Iyara, Bawse Dawg and the Grung Gaad himself Bounty Killer as she stopped of in Jamaica. This song is off her album All Of Me and was also featured on the Love Ultra Mix CD – Part Two.

A funny scene is her being led to the stage to perform on the beach and she looking back at security guard like ‘HELP NUHH’ and then her trying to form the ‘A’ with her fingers to rep for ‘The Alliance’. As we celebrate Jamaica’s 50th year of Independence… This reminds me why ‘Jamaica Nice!’

TenDJiz – “CommoNasm” (Common x Nas Meet Soviet Soul/Jazz)

Mash up Common and Nas and mix in some Soviet soul to get “CommoNasm”…Clever…VERY clever! The liner notes at the Bandcamp or Soundcloud site for this gem should draw you in (like it did me):

“CommoNasm (Common and Nas Meet Soviet Soul/Jazz) is an album created by Miami-based producer/sound engineer TenDJiz by blending the acapellas of Common and Nas with instrumentals based on Soviet soul and jazz samples.”

Enjoy this TenDJiz mash-up, y’all. Looks like mash-ups are the in thing, huh?
