The Jazz Chill Corner: Martha Wash Something Good Review

Screen Shot 2013-01-25 at 1.58.20 PM

MarthaCD_Cover400wMartha Wash is a 30-year veteran of the music industry, from her work with the late visionary Sylvester as one of the ‘Two Tons O’ Fun’ (then later dubbed ‘The Weather Girls’ with the release of “It’s Raining Men”) to her work with another late visionary, Luther Vandross, plus C&C Music Factory, Black Box, and many more. However, if your only experience with her energizing vocal power is with upbeat dance tracks, then prepare for an acoustic musical shift on this CD. Something Good is stretching out and serving mid-tempo and adult contemporary pop aimed at providing a shot of hope for the disconnected and jaded. While the entire disc is a very solid effort, standout tracks here are “It’s My Time” written by Swedish singer/songwriter, Helena Johansson, “Destiny”, co-written by Wash, and “I’ve Got You”, written by Rony Goffer and Zach Adam. She even takes on and ably handles the Aerosmith classic track, “Dream On”. This is music that should lift you up from any rut that you feel stuck in. Immerse yourself in Something Good.
