Mary J. Blige

Sat, 30. Oct 2010, 9.15 PM | Hip Soul
Festsaal Messe Basel

The life of Mary J. Blige is the story of an angry rapper from the Bronx who became a world class R&B singer. These days this native New Yorker is 39 years old and is a diva in the best sense of the word: experienced and enlightened and like Mary herself, her music shows true greatness and style. This development can be traced over the history of her previous albums and it reaches its peak in her opus «Stronger With Every Tear». In contrast, the Swiss soul singer Jones relies solely on his light-footed R&B with funky undertones. On both of his albums to date, he wrote and recorded all of the songs himself.

With over 40 million albums sold worldwide, nine Grammys and just as many albums not to mention the unequivocal title «Queen of Hip Hop Soul»: Mary J. Blige is a true diva in the best sense of the word. Her music is a big as her personality and like any true diva this native New Yorker is also a style icon. Justin Nozuka is an exceptional talent. On his debut album «Holly», he was compared with greats such as Marvin Gaye, Jeff Buckley and Ben Harper – even though Nozuka was only 19 years old at the time. His following album «You I Wind Land And Sea» was released in spring 2010 and it shows: Justin has got even better.
