Rahsaan Patterson - Bleurphoria
Bleuphoria is a stunning return from one of the pre-eminent modern soul singers – with background vocal guests including Jody Watley, Faith Evans, Lalah Hathaway, Shanice and the Andrea Crouch Singers. This is a consistently good fifth solo album from a singer who defines the word classy.
Highlights are his trademark gorgeous ballads Miss You and Goodbye, hypnotic mid-tempo grooves (6 AM and Stay With Me), and irresistibly funky dancefloor tracks (the instant club hit Ghost featuring Jody Watley). The insistent, gospel-flavoured Mountain Top is a departure from anything he has recorded before, and features the legendary Andrea Crouch Singers.
The album is rooted in the classic principles of melody and poetic lyrics while embracing Eighties R&B/Pop as purveyed by the likes of Prince and Michael Jackson.
Since his outstanding 1997 debut album for MCA, Rahsaan has evolved as avocalist and songwriter, along the way writing songs for Tevin Campbell, Brandy, Ledisi, Lalah Hathaway and Van Hunt. Now in 2011, with the assistance of his regular production cohorts Keith Crouch and Jamey Jazz, he delivers some of his finest work.
