meshell ndegeocello(comfort woman)
res (how i do)
les nubians (one step forward)
goapele (even closer)
yahzarah (hear me)
n'dambi (tunin' up and cosignin')
joi (amoeba cleansing syndrome or star kitty's revenge )
the mango room (honeychild and friends)
w. ellington felton (soul sonnets)
fertile ground (all of their cd's-they're all worth purchasing)
roy hargrove (check the rh factor)

i know there's more but that's a start

i saw her live and her voice is strong--she&#39;s very comfortable in being woman.....she radiates sensuality in a in-your-face kinda way......she opened for erykah last year.....

*tries to think of some funkysoul artists that nobody&#39;s heard of...but everybody named all the ones I know*

:offtopic,

BBF, Meshell&#39;s Comfort Woman is beautiful, awe-inspiring, makeyawannamakeloveallday! Did you read the interview in Curve? It was pretty weak. The only thing new I learned is that her and Rebecca are no longer together but still raising Akira. Also she moved to the east coast.

I just ordered the "Seasons Change" cd by Fertile Ground from Dusty Grooves.com. I buy quite a few of my cd&#39;s by listening to your comments. :-)

Thanks for the suggestions ya&#39;ll. I&#39;m listening to samples and having a ball. Be sure to list more if you come across any. I&#39;m in the old country south, and I don&#39;t really hear about many of these artists unless they hit mainstream.
