Mind, Body & Song (1994) Jade

Right off the bat, Jade overwhelms listeners with their vaulting a capella harmonies on "When Will I See You Again," placing them securely in the gospel firmament that has produced countless R&B stars. But it is Jade's way with a modern romantic ballad and lush, bouncy funk that has established them as one of the hottest contemporary vocal groups.

Like En Vogue, they convey a fervent, sophisticated brand of sensuality on MIND, BODY & SONG, equal parts sweet surrender and gender bender. Thus you have songs like "If The Lovin' Ain't Good" and "If The Mood Is Right," with their silky promises of carnal bliss, but only if bachelor number one is hip enough to realize that the sexiest part of the female anatomy is her brain.
Elsewhere, Jade sustains their smokey, distinctive aura on heated romantic fare such as "Bedroom" and "I Like The Way," while the more upbeat arrangements of "There's Not A Man" and "Every Day Of The Week" cross over into dance-oriented territory. And in the middle of it all, Jade offers up the contrasting mood of "What's Goin' On" (not the Marvin Gaye classic), wherein they address their concerns about the troubled lives of their urban contemporaries.
