Various Artists - Detroit Soul: Real Soul Music from Motor City

First published in CD reviews by

Various Artists - Detroit Soul: Real Soul Music from Motor City (Unisex) Album The title's a misnomer. What it really means is a round up of the current cream of urban musicians in Detroit. Less concerned with their Motown heritage, the current crop step back to be-bop jazz, brazillian, and latin, and forward to drum and bass, hip-hop andeven ambient textures.

If it means the tracklisting is occasionally haphazard, it also affords a broad look at some very interesting new voices. Platinum Pied Pipers open your eyes utilises an Isley Brothers-type solo. While John Arnold's Inside grooves on Afro-Cuban rhythmns. This is soul with a decidedly avant slant.
