Jaki G: New Life (Aris Records, 2006)

Another good snag from my good pal Stuaaart, the only album from talented Detroit songstress Jaki G which as far as I can tell is out-of-print and unavailable to buy on CD Baby, iTunes or any of the typical places.  Possessing a jazzy contralto vocal range, her album is a polished blend of neo soul and contemporary R&B and was produced entirely by Frankie Fultz, formally of the Detroit area acid jazz/electro outfit Underground Resistance. Not much information found about her but from what I can tell she is now helping other local musicians and performers find their way as a board member of the Detroit Metro Area Musicians & Entertainers Association.

Thanks once again to Stuaaart ;-)
