ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
rob and tha soul brother

rob and tha soul brother is on a mission. that mission is to bring back real music, in a modern form for people to enjoy and to bring back the fun that goes along with it—the party sounding music, the slow-jams-in-the-basement vibe, the block party sound, concerts!

show some luv says, “mission accomplished!”

**about us
robert (rob) james, producer, songwriter, and engineer, and sandy “tha soul brother” anderson, bass player, musician, songwriter, began collaborating in 1996. in 1999 rob and tha soul brother produced two songs on the proyecto uno four album. after some frustrating experiences, rob and tha soul brother decided to produce their own cd—show some luv, a 2 cd set. groove to the r&b on cd #1, then relax and mellow out to the cool jazz on cd #2. we know you’ll enjoy the music!

**about rob
evolving from the humble beginnings of funky, rhythm guitarist, producer, engineer, arranger, songwriter and singer, rob’s musical industry knowledge has brought him to work with and be associated with many famous and legendary names in the business. most notable: peer southern music publishing, dick scott entertainment, donnie linton’s management and hogland records where rob was briefly appointed to a top position as manager of distribution by donnie linton, mr. henry nash, former manager of little richard, the isley brothers, millie jackson and wilson pickett, latin icons proyecto uno, soul r&b/disco group crown heights affair, tanya gardner, cherokee, rayvon, world renowned engineers greg mann, ed miller, to name a few, universal music group “latin america,” warner electric asylum records, bigbeat records, beggars banquet records uk, jelly bean benitez’s jellies jam music publishing, hola recordings, usa.

**about tha soul brother – sandy anderson
sandy “tha soul brother” anderson is a member of an elite class of musicians—the gifted. the world’s most versatile bass player, he can, literally, play any kind of music, anywhere, anytime, without rehearsal, and play it perfectly!

born in the bronx, playing the saxophone his mother scrimped and saved to buy for him at age 14, he instantly became a local hero, in demand by several bands. he began playing the bass guitar and increased his demand (his mother painted a mustache on him so he could get into the clubs where he played).

writing songs and performing as bass player and background vocalist in “unlimited touch” gave him a brief taste of fame and exposure to the darker side of the music business. artists and writers were not always adequately or fairly compensated for their work and missed out on royalties over the years. lessons were learned that were carried through life.

over the years he has played with many successful artists, including one way, skky, gary “u.s.” bonds, wilson pickett, the duke ellington band, the drifters, little anthony, the strykers, sylvester, calypso rose, sandy and papo, proyecto uno, groove theory, indigalas, marion meadows, evelyn “champagne” king, baba olatunji, omar hakim, mike clarke, freddie jackson, melissa morgan, phyllis hyman, the coasters, crown heights affair, cab calloway, slave.

you can hear his unique bass and vocal style on:
• proyecto uno – four (1999)
• m.o.p. – firing squad (1996)
• france joli – now (1994)
• unlimited touch – unlimited touch (1993)
• entouch – all nite (1989)
• enchantment – enchanted lady (1982)
• odyssey – happy together (1982)

when asked who he admires, sandy does not hesitate. “my biggest hero is jaco pastorius, an all-time great among bass players, a legend in his own time, whose career was far too short for those of us who loved to hear him play. and jaco could play… i was privileged to study under him. his death was a personal loss.” sandy studied under percy jones (brand x), another hero. he admires many other bass players, including victor wooten, stu hamm, brian bromberg, bill dickens, jeff berlin, reggie wooten, doug wimbush, t.m. stevens, stanley banks, and anthony jackson.

show some luv has arrived! this double cd is packed with r&b and cool jazz hits that have taken the art of music making to another level. the music world is indeed blessed to have the incredible talent of rob james and sandy “tha soul brother” anderson! now you have the opportunity to reap the benefits of their hard work and immerse yourself in some of the best music out there!

Jazz-Funk-Slow Jams...to the MAX
This two CD set contains what is probably the best Jazz CD I have heard so far this year. The only problem is that it's hidden away and you have to dig it out. On their website it says "Rob & Tha Soul Brother is ON A MISSION.
That mission is to bring back REAL MUSIC, in a modern form for people to enjoy and to bring back the fun that goes along with it-the party sounding music, the slow-jams-in-the-basement vibe, the block party sound, concerts!"
And they aren't kidding either. Disc 1 of the two CD set sounds like an "old school house party in a box". Complete with foundation shaking funk jams in the mode of Slave/P-Funk/Brick/Graham Central Station, etc. and basement sweatbox style slow jams in the mode of the Miracles, just roll out Disc #1 and you have an instant party. Disc #2 is an exercise in the construction and deconstruction of jazz designed for the people (not critics). For example Disc #2 contains tributes to BOTH Victor Wooten "Loose Strings" and Jaco Pastorius "JP". And dammit if Sandy Anderson (The Soul Brother") doesn't sound EXACTLY LIKE VICTOR WOOTEN AND JACO PASTORIUS!!!!! It's also got a few mellow cuts a' la George Benson. Disc 2 also includes some stank funky cuts worthy of a "CTI fast song collection" (if such a thing ever were to exist).
Take the song "Cosmic Soul" for example, it sounds like a SUPER HOTT JAZZ BAND playing FUNK at a house party in Harlem at midnight with the windows open and the cops kept at bay? In effect Disc #1 of "Show Some Luv" is "WWRL" and Disc #2 is "WRVR" (sorry for the NYC references..lol). So what's the problem with this album? You can't tell what it is when you look at it.
When you look at the title and the album cover the first thing that comes to mind is hip hop. But perhaps in the end that will be more of an opportunity than a problem? Because maybe the way to get younger people to check out music that is this good is to put it into a package that they will be attracted to? I dunno, but if there is only one album that you are gonna buy in 2006, MAKE THIS THE ONE YOU BUY (nuff said).

Great value for money
This is certainly excellent value comprising two CD’s for the price of one. On CD1 the emphasis is firmly on funk and “Make U Mine” sets the trend along with the burping synthesiser led “Soul Sista.” “Poppin’,” featuring Audrey Wheeler on vocals is less catchy and “I Know” is a naff soul ballad. “Make It Right,” “Up Down” and “Change The World” are all obviously Slave influenced with similar bass and vocal style and “It’s Gotta B” is similar to Slave in mellow mood. “Show Some Love” is a good funky and soulful mid tempo song. “Candy” is slower and more soulful than funky. “Rob And Tha Soul Brother” has obvious P Funk influences.CD2 features various styles of jazz starting with a nice funky instrumental, “4th Avenue” and the acid jazz like “Cosmic Soul” isn’t bad. The best track, “Dorian” leans towards smooth jazz as does “Moonlite Sunrise” which is one of those electric guitar led tunes that rarely appeal to me. “BK Samba” is what it says and leaves me cold. Unfortunately, the rest of the album then drifts into improvisational mode with the Miles Davis influenced “Because I Said So,” the Jaco Pastorius tribute “JP,” the Victor Wooten tribute “Loose Strings” and “Percy And Me” which could have been a tribute to either of them.
