Putumayo Rhythm & Blues (Review and Giveaway)

I was honored to be given the chance to review Putumayo World Music's newest release called Rhythm & Blues. I am already a fan of Putumayo because of their Kids line of music. We especially love the Sesame Street Playground CD.

Rhythm & Blues is a collection of classic songs performed by both newcomers and established performers. The tracks include:

1 Lavelle White • I've Never Found a Man to Love
2 James Hunter • 'Til Your Fool Comes Home
3 Cracked Ice • Sweet Feeling
4 The Quantic Soul Orchestra featuring Kabir • Who Knows
5 The Emotions • My Honey and Me
6 Sam Moore, Keb' Mo' and Angie Stone • Wang Dang Doodle
7 Catherine Russell • Put Me Down Easy
8 Ruthie Foster • 'Cuz I'm Here
9 Snooks Eaglin • A Mother's Love
10 Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings • 100 Days, 100 Nights
11 Rockie Charles • Before I Find the Right Girl for Me
12 Irma Thomas with Henry Butler • River Is Waiting

My favorite song on the CD is Keb Mo' and Angie Stone collaboration that recreates the Howlin' Wolf song "Wang Dang Doodle" After I listened to the song I looked at the credits and was surprised to find that it was produced by American Idol star Randy Jackson! I recommend this CD for when you want to get yourself moving. It is upbeat in tempo and has fun and meaningful lyrics.

I apprciate a company that is socially aware and Putumayo fits that description. The following is taken from the Putumayo website: "In response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Putumayo is re-releasing French Caribbean and our children’s CD Caribbean Playground and will be donating 100% of our proceeds from the sale of each CD to The Red Cross". Good for them.
