CRAIG T. COOPER - "When you love somebody" (1996)

This is an imaginative Soul-Jazz groove which utilizes perfectly the combination of 2 classic Soul standards: Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual healing” and Teddy Pendergrass’ “When somebody loves you back”. It features Julie Delgado on female backing vocals.

Craig T. Cooper is a top-notch Jazz guitarist/producer/ songwriter having produced numerous quality soulful projects for many artists such as Krystol, Denise Stewart, Whispers and many others.

This great track is taken from his 1996 CD album “A romantic letter” released on Sin-Drome Records.

EDITH LEFEL - "Mon ange" (2002)

One of the most elegant women ever lived. Although she passed away in 2003 at the age of 39, today she's still considered as the finest artist of "Zouk-Love" music derived from French Antilles.

Born in French Guyana, at 3 she moved to Martinique and at 14 she finally moved to Paris France. She recorded 5 wonderful studio albums and she collaborated with many other notable Caribbean artists such as Malavoi.

The track I've chosen, is taken from her last album entitled "Si seulement" recorded in 2002 and released on Creon Music. Soulful Caribbean finesse at its best.
