Roseaux - "Walking On The Moon (feat. Aloe Blacc)"
Not surprised to see them posting cuts from Aaron Neville, Bill Withers and Rodriguez on the Roseaux Facebook page. This is a subtly soulful track that falls in line with the output of those three and also with a group I wish more folks knew about: The Pair Extraordinaire. There's a jazz underpinning to the piano while the percussion (bongos?) suggests Greenwich-village Beat poetry and folk coffeehouses. Blacc meanwhile delivers the goods as he always does - the man's voice can soar; no surprise he finds himself walking on the moon.
