Every now and again, Ill slip into something R&B just because some material is just far too enticing to ignore based on a label/pigeonhole or the general theme of a site. Ive reviewed Leela James and Gianna and held a conversation with Kloud 9. Theyve all proven to be more than worthy of such attention. On September 29, two of the most brilliant voices to ever grace soul, R&B, jazz, and any other genre you can imaginecrooner Phil Perry and the incomparable Melba Moore--will join forces on The Gift of Love to belt out some of the sweetest and most inspirational covers of quality gems to ever come along. With uncanny pitch and harmony, these two do so much for music past that it brings tears to ones eyes. The R&B cuts like Youre All I Need to Get By are one thing, but the spiritual-tinged inspirational pieces are also sure to happily carry you to church as you chime in on the choruses. This CD, so full of heart and soul and loaded with moving, smartly selected tunes, is bound to capture you where you live.

Its such a blessing to us all that Melba Moore can still belt like the canary she was when starring in Broadway hits like Hair and Purlie. Its all still there, as creamy, yet as stinging, as only she can deliver. Perry is likewise nowhere near hanging up the pipes, as his falsetto carries as much force, bite, and sweetness as its always carried. Singers like these two will always remind us of what vocals were when we had Tammy Terrell and Marvin Gaye (a duo to whom these two pay respect, among others) stood before us and left it all on the recording studio--or stage--floor. Why buy another CD full of covers, you ask? Just listen, and I think you'll have your answer.
