Jimi Hendrix returns: The Tuesday new music rundown

A strong R&B debut, a reissued greatest hits collection from an underrated vocalist and, oh yeah —some Hendrix guy.

It’s another interesting week in new music, with the big news centered around the latest posthumous album from the legendary Jimi Hendrix. But there are other notable recordings dropping that you may want to give a listen. Not quite as soul-oriented as last week, and always eclectic.

Boz Scaggs has been writing, singing and playing great music since his tenure with the Steve Miller Band, so hearing him team up with the Memphis Horns and Willie Weeks is a delight for any fans of classic southern soul. Kate Nash’s latest may shock some of her fans — she’s definitely channeling her inner Courtney Love this time around. And Marcus Canty makes a respectable debut with an EP that owes quite a bit to Trey Songz.

    I have to say I disagree with the premise of this article. You said:

    “there is one stinging criticism that has dogged her since the world first heard her at 17 years old back in 2001”

    “Keys is no powerhouse belter — no matter how many over-the-top anthems she unleashes on the public”

    “Her greatness was never in the majesty of her voice. It was in the sincerity of her art”

    I say no. The first time I heard her sing was when she released “Fallin'” and you can’t tell me that her introduction to the world with that song was not an amazing vocal performance by Alicia Keys. She smashed that song and was able to reproduce that vocal when performing it live.

    I think people’s problem is that in recent times she hasn’t been able to maintain that high standard she set for herself from the start. So people are comparing Alicia Keys grating performances of “girl on fire” now with her amazing introduction on “Fallin” you can’t tell me that you don’t see where the backlash is coming from when you look at it like that!

    I still love Alicia Keys though and I like her new album. I just think loads of touring, maybe her having a baby etc has changed her voice over time.
