Beautiful Tomorrow

Two weeks ago today, I received an Amazon package with a few CDs in it. Right now, I’m listening to Blue Six‘s 2002 album, Beautiful Tomorrow, on the Naked Music label.

For those who aren’t aware, three of Blue Six’s songs—“Pure”, “Music and Wine”, and “Love Yourself”—are well-known enough in the deep house scene that they’re almost standards. This album has multiple mixes of those tracks, as well as other standout songs—“Let’s Do It Together”, “Very Good Friends”, “Grace (Freedom Dub)”, “Come Inside”, and “Beautiful Tomorrow.” The production quality is solid and the song-writing excellent, if minimalist. Lisa Shaw, Catherine Russell, Monique Bingham, Lysa, and Diva Blue deliver powerful vocal performances. The entire CD has a laid-back groove-laden tropical feel, evoking sandy beaches and cool breezes.

My grade: B+.
