Album Review

While new jack swing was urban contemporary's dominant sound in the late '80s and early to mid-'90s, the style that dominated late-'90s R&B was so-called "jeep soul" — slow-grooving, slow-grinding R&B that was appropriate for cruising around in a jeep. Jeep soul didn't return R&B to the type of greatness that characterized it in the 1960s and 1970s, but it had its moments. One release that was appropriate for the late-'90s jeep soul crowd was Jesse Powell's 'Bout It, which isn't a gem but is generally decent. The singer doesn't incorporate an abundance of rapping (something many jeep soulsters were doing), but his producers do favor a very hip-hop-ish production style on "Up and Down," "I Wasn't with It," and other selections. Powell doesn't provide anything for the dancefloor — most of the time, he gets into a comfortable medium-tempo groove, whether he's being romantic or overtly sexual. Not a remarkable CD, but competent and usually likable.

Great R&B Album!!!

Jessie Powell is very talented and this has to be his best album. This album includes the popular 90's wedding song "You". His stylish vocals and mellow R&B beats make this album a must-have. Well worth the money.

Baby Makin' Music

The song 'You' is the bomb. I conceived my twins on this song and have been bangin' to it ever since!

One of my favorites!

This album is excellent. You can listen straight through. He has a great voice and I would like to see him do more as this album is 10 years old and still great!
