First Impressions: Woo Woo Woo

Monday, October 17, 2011

There was something about this weekend that I took in a lot of New Jack Swing listening. While I was immersed in it, I was sitting thinking that Babyface and L.A. Reid were just masters in the genre. Not to discount Teddy Riley, Jam and Lewis, and a whole mess of others, but really Babyface had the magic touch when it came to producing great tunes.

So it was quite nice to see his name attached to Anthony Hamilton's new track, "Woo". An instant, "Well, this is gonna be good" feeling washed over me---and well, "Woo" is good. Real good. I won't say it's the greatest thing Hamilton's ever done, but it's the right groove for the moment and I was humming it long after it stopped (good sign). Hamilton is one of the few modern soul men that I still give my undivided attention to, and I am aware to the fact that Mr. Hamilton is releasing a brand-new set this year. Thank goodness that "Woo" gets us on the good foot of what is to come.
