Joy Crookes - Trouble

Musically, it's pretty easy to stick two or more random things together and call them a 'fusion'. It doesn't always turn out well, and you end up with 'Cotton Eyed Joe' instead of 'In A Silent Way'. Thankfully, the very excellent 'Trouble' falls into the latter category. It's a melting pot of different influences. Jazz, Classic Soul, Reggae, and even Crooke's Bengali heritage combine with her incredible voice, and it's beyond intoxicating. I am getting the same whole body tingles I had the first time I heard Amy Winehouse sing, and I can't give it higher praise than that, really.
