“The Odyssey” is Miles Jaye at his R& B best. It is a creative tour de force of soulful romance featuring Miles’ inimitable voice, insightful lyrics and melodic arrangements. The first title features a sexy parley between lovers titled “I’ll Never Go” performed with songstress Alyson Williams known for her hit single “Just Call My Name”. “Can I Come Over”; “Love Story” and “Marry Me” are beautiful romantic ballads. While “Man On A Corner” lends itself to a bluesy country music arrangement evoking hopelessness and urgency; “Free Me” delivers a yearning anthem of release giving the listener an outstanding acoustic performance accompanied by guitar. Miles also gives us a treat revisiting the hit single, “Wildflower” and adds a little “doo-wop” with his performance on “Step by Step”. This CD is creative, innovative and absolutely enjoyable.
Miles Jaye was discovered by Teddy Pendergrass and is known for his hit CDs, MILES, IRRESISTIBLE and STRONG. Like his namesake, Miles Davis, he is one of music’s most gifted, distinctive and dynamic artists. Miles was also the lead singing “Cop” for the world-renowned disco group the Village People.
