Reviewed by: Jason Kordich/URB next 1000 FL Jones is seeking to redefine soul music. Although he is a product of the hip-hop generation, this New York native is drawn to live instrumentation. His music embraces sonic vibrations across cultures, genres, and movements. As an artist and song writer, he has performed in some of the more prestigious venues in New York (the Jazz Standard, Le Bar Bat, The Bitter End, The Cutting Room). However, his music expands much further than his experience as a live performer. Scoring the feature film 200 American, he demonstrated his ability to compose original songs for the entire film. FL Jones is a genuine artist and when it comes to music that is a rare thing. Whether he is singing about love, relationships or struggle, the lyrics and production are seamlessly intertwined to create a composition you can believe in. Having recently announced his debut CD, Becoming Myself, will be released soon, listeners should expect the songs to be a composite of Contemporary R&B with the Classics.
