Milton Suggs -][- THINGS TO COME (Listen) – [Skiptone Music, 2010]
Incredible work from vocalist Milton Suggs – a jazz singer with a really rich new style! Suggs is unlike anyone else we can think of – but he’s also got a vibe that takes us back to some of our most inspirational singers of the 70s – cats like Mark Murphy, Jon Lucien, Andy Bey, and other one-of-a-kind artists – the kind that blow you away when you first hear them, then keep on holding your ears for years to come! There’s definitely a jazz approach to Milton’s singing, but other righteous elements bubble forth strongly too – and given that most of the music and lyrics were written by Suggs, the record has a deeply personal voice that’s quite different than the usual jazz vocal outing.
The set’s the sort that makes us proud to share a city with a talent this large – and titles include “Fantasy For Two”, “Seize The Moment”, “Not Forgotten”, “We’ll See”, “My Last Goodbye”, “Your Smile”, “Hope”, and “JL’s Blues”. —Dusty Groove America, Inc.
