The Picture: TVOne’s Unsung Shines On The Atlantic Starr

I love this show… I love this show… I love this show… Ok, that’s enough of the love for the show I’ll talk about. If you do not have TVOne, or you do and you are not tuned into this show, you are missing out. Unsung is one of TVOne programming where they do an hour special story on musical artists and groups who have made great music, but may not be considered mainstream’s greatest acts ever, so their story often times goes “Unsung”. They have a new season starting and each show airs on Monday night at 10pm. Yesterday, the story was about the famed R&B Pop group Atlantic Starr who gave us huge ballad hits like “Secret Lovers” and “Always”. Make sure you check them out, but in case you missed it last night, you can catch the episode in its entirety below…

The Review: Eric Roberson is Mr. Nice Guy Part I

A young woman awakes early Saturday morning to start her weekend full of to-do list items and small errands before painting the social night life with her friends.   She enters into a nearby coffee shop for her favorite cup of Joe before starting her day.  A young man opens the door for her and holds it open as she walks through.  She doesn’t say thank you or acknowledges him, she just continues to the line to grab her coffee.  Once her caffeine fix is filled, she heads to the post office to drop some mail off and a package she had to send for a project due.  While standing in line, she drops her pen on the floor and a middle-aged gentleman picks it up for her.  She takes it out of his hand and heads to the teller since she is the next one in line. She has a lot of things to do before nightfall, so she continues to motor through her day without noticing what has happened to her.  After a couple of more stops she heads to a local Mediterranean spot to grab some lunch.  A gentleman in front of her offered to allow her to be served in front of him. She just walked in front of him and ordered her food without saying thank you.

The Review: Eric Roberson is Mr. Nice Guy Part II

“Fall” is the perfect combination of Eric’s balladeer and house music roots from classics like “Change For Me” and “Rock With You”.  This record is a call to a woman open to the intimacy & energy in the moment of the night, with both arriving at the awaited moment when two hearts reach the highest height of love’s kiss, it is that moment when she’ll fall in love, and into his arms. Here you hear Brandon “B-Jazz” Scott uses the use a lot of strings and electric piano to voice a love melody just behind Eric vocals.  With the record “Shake Her Hand”, this is one the things that men deal with all the time.  When you are in a relationship, it always seems that is when you get the most attention from the opposite. Just when you seem to have the right one, temptation comes along to try to tell you something different. Yet, a wise man knows and understands that temptation will never go away, but you have to learn to walk away and not put yourself in a position to fail and possibly loose the good thing you have a home.

The Review: Take A Visit Through The Dimensions Of The Smithsoneon

You enter into a dark room… the space seems large but your emotions feel claustrophobic, the temperature is above your body index but you feel frozen as your perspiration turns to ice as you sweat. Lights begin to flicker and you see images and outlines of people moving, but you can make out their faces. You turn your body to pass through the crowd although it seems you have more than enough room to move.  Your eyes are focused in front of you, your destination is just close enough to see…yet it takes forever to get there.  You were locked in when you entered, now you don’t want to leave without knowing is this real.  This is cosmic moment when things disappear because nothing else matters anymore…failure doesn’t exist… You are completely committed and you’ve fallen for what could be, and not what is… It is this moment that is created in the musical laboratory of Tim “Smithsoneon” Smith.  In an electronic musical world with minor chord hallways and melodic African rooted hi hac hits with MPC’d drum beats… Smithsoneon is true to his namesake’s wordplay; a museum full of musical artistic visions that will remain with you for some time…
