Featured Album: Club Nouveau's Jay King wows us with "Soulful Bossa Nova"

It seems like just a blink ago that the R&B band Club Nouveau took over the world with the #1 hit and Grammy Award winning single, "Lean On Me." That began a run of excellence for the group, including such hits as "Situation #9" and "Jealousy." 

Club Nouveau showed us a few years ago that they still had the touch with the album Consciousness. We've long been fans of group leader Jay King, and have been anxiously waiting for months for the release of his new solo album, Soulful Bossa Nova.

As you can expect from Jay King, the album is a refreshing amalgamation of styles that should score with SoulTrackers. As Jay tells us, “Because I LOVE Bossa Nova music, Joao Gilberto and Carlos Jobim and Marvin Gaye is my favorite artist of all time, I set out to create what I coin as Soulful Bossa Nova or Cool R&B. You'll hear different elements throughout the project on different songs. We have married R&B, Jazz, Samba & Bossa Nova to create a new musical movement.”

The album is due soon, but we have a great sneak peek of it today. Check out the clips below. And as a special treat, you can hear the full, sexy nighttime jam, "All Your Love (All Nite Long)." It is a sensual song that would fit with the great late night classics of Marvin Gaye. You're going to be 100% ready for more Jay King!
