Sample - 1

After fillin' the sucssesfull '60 & '70 years with soul Aretha entered the early '80's with a new dimension. "Jump to it" is the top, a sample of Funk & Soul together with upcoming artists like Luther Vandross (also produced this album), Fonzi Thornton (The Leader '83), Marcus Miller, The Brothers Johnson (Louis Johnson plays bass on "Just my Daydream"), Levi Stubbs (The Four Tops, duet on "I Wanna make it up to you") and George Duke (Shine on '82). A unique combination, as these artists including Aretha know how to deal with it. From delicious uptempo's to silky soul ballads, the whole album is wonderful. Nevertheless, all these productions from the '80's set the pace. Meant what this decade was all about, you can find it also back in these songs. Eventhough this album is nearly 20 years old, the music can last forever.

Pretty pearl by Matt Hughes, inspired obviously on Aretha' s track, popped out by the deep sea funk oyster Outcross Records. "Can't Talk Now" is ultra ultra groovy, a good indicator of the rest of Hughes' latest release, The Funk Theory EP. Check out his label buddies, they're all quite excellent. 
Samples is the right way.
