Every once and a while a gem walks into our offices. The most recent musical one came into our e-mails from Picasso Brown called "Can I Talk 2U."
It's an old-fashioned slow R&B song with some really outstanding singing, excellent playing and production, including a guitar solo that had Larry Carlton sound.
Brown also sings lead vocals for the Pennsylvania based funk band, Full Effect, which plays the North Eastern area on a regular basis and is curretly booked into September.

The NY band G-Spot (see our review from the last music special) has been in rehearsals for several months working on material for a new album and should be starting recording at the end of this month!
Their song, Sweet Lies, was featured on commercial station WRAT 95.9 The Rat's Jersey Rock Radio Show, in addition to many other college and internet radio stations.
The band, fronted by Gail Silverman, is featured on two upcoming compilation CDs both due out this month -- WSVN Radio Hall of Fame & Hearitagain.net's Live Girls Rock & Girls Rule CD.
The band was very busy last year playing their usual haunts in New York City, plus over last summer they played elsewhere in NY State and New Jersey including The Saint, in Asbury Park, The Haunt, up in Ithaca and Stonybrook College's Roth Regatta. G-Spot was also featured in variety of festivals and showcases last year, including:
Est Fest in Long Island
