Lovely Maxwell

Can I just say Maxwell is one of the coolest cats around? I loved him when he performed an Al Green tribute at the 2008 BET Awards. For those few minutes while he was on stage, I forgave BET for all their transgressions. Seriously. His performance, his suit, his cool shades, the shoes, the haircut. He was dope boy fresh, for real. He recently performed This Woman’s Work and I thought I would share the youtube clip. I hope he really comes out with an album soon. All I know is that he likes to lurk on his MySpace account a lot. Otherwise, he keeps a low profile.

Also, D’Angelo is one of my favorite soul brothers who has been MIA. Read this great article in SPIN about the details behind his low profile/issues. It also sheds a little light on Maxwell’s absence as well.

Man, I’ve been diving back into both these guys lately, too. My wife says Max doesn’t look nearly as hot with the short hair, but that might be a good thing. 🙂 And it’s amazing, “This Woman’s Work” still kills me every time. What an amazing, amazing version of the song.

Maxwell love. I am so ready for the new album to drop!
Interesting the link that you shared from This company has avoided being sued for copyright issues in the USA because the domain is registered outside of the USA but people have issues with the website. Interesting article in CNET news about this here:

I love me some Maxwell. I can listen to him sing all day. I was mesmerized when I saw him do that tribute.

Maxwell is one of the greatest soul singers in our lifetime but unfortunately he is also another great talent on MIA list.

I’m ready for that album. Love the snippet of Pretty Wings in his site, but you can only play it so many times…
