Yesterday I began phase two of my 2009 summer creativity adventures with Maxwell’s new CD, BLACKsummers’ night. Each of the nine tracks has been added to my summer joie de vivre playlist. So far my favorites are “Pretty WIngs,” “Stop the World,” “Love You,” “Playing Possum,” and “Phoenix Rise.”
Are you a Maxwell fan?
When did you discover Maxwell?
If yes, what are your favorite Maxwell CDs, songs, and concert moments?
I discovered Maxwell while watching the movie Love Jones (one of my favorite films) in 1997. All of Maxwell’s CDs are my favorites! I adore “Til the Cops Come Knockin,” “Sumthin’ Sumthin’: Mellosmoothe,” “This Woman’s Work,” “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),” and “Whenever, Wherever, Whatever.” I could listen to them all day and night long. My favorite Maxwell concert moment was seeing him perform at the 1997 Essence Music Festival Concert held in New Orleans. He was amazing! Maxwell’s music also kept me company while I wrote my first novel, Love’s Troubadours – Karma: Book One (2007 – www.lovestroubadours.com).
Enjoy your day!
Peace, Creativity, and Maxwell Music Love,
