    Just ordered his latest disc. Love the 100 Yard Dash song. I really hope that the R'n'B movement continues to go in that old school soul direction.

    Very cool retro sound. I thought he was a really young guy with that voice, but he's a bit older. Good stuff.

    Y'all know he played bass and guitar on, and wrote, D'Angelo's "Untitled (How Does It Feel)," right?

    badass.

    The bassline on the D'Angelo track is sick.

    Saadiq plays on some great records.

    Man is a monster...

    Absolutely true. I'm also glad to see him getting more direct "face time" with his music again.

    Cool find for me. I turned my 12 year old daughter onto him.........I love the whole oldschool R&B vibe with the shiny sparkly modern production........Really emphasizes space...

    Love his work with D'Angelo (especially "Lady"), but I haven't heard any album of his since Toni Tone Tony (sp? :D). I'll have to check it out.
