Produced by “her” longtime collaborator, smooth jazz keyboardist Bob Baldwin, “she” is a sophisticated fusion of smooth jazz and slinky soul that has led commentators to keep drawing comparisons between Ms. Williams and the now apparently inactive Anita Baker. American soul and jazz singer Laurie Williams is a veteran musician with a wide range of skills: a well-known singer, educator, songwriter, producer and musical theater actress. Soul and Jazz and Funk is an independent site with information and reviews on soul compiled by Charles Waring and Bill Buckley, two of Britain’s most experienced and respected soul music writers. Their 2018 collection, Out Of The Box, was hugely successful, and earlier this year, Laurie announced a new album with the delightful single “New Day.” First, it’s the popular “Let’s Stay Together,” which is different enough from the Al Green original to be of piquant interest, and is a delightfully intimate treat. It’s a song with Jonathan Butler, so it’s no surprise that the flavor is South African, with harmony vocals rather than full lyrics. Intriguing.
