Underground Joints Legend: 5 Crates = Classic, 4 Crates = Hot, 3 Crates = Not bad, 2 Crates =Aiight, 1 Crate = Wack...Don't waste ya $$$!!

Last week, a young man strolled into Earwax with his guitar in tow. I was wondering just who he was and what he would sound like. Well, we were treated to the melodious sounds of new artist Jafar as he played an acoustic set with selections from his new CD "Thoughts From My Room". Among the 12 tracks on the disc are some great songs, like 'Love Again', 'More 2 Love', 'My Life', title track 'Thoughts From My Room' and the blazin' hot 'No Longer In Love'. >From what I've heard, Jafar is well on his way to making a mark in the industry. (4.0 Crates)

The Good, The Bad, The Local
Our Quarterly Local-Music Review Spread Goes Bi-Monthly

Hillsborough County's Jafar Curry is currently working this six-song disc hard via rigorous regional touring and the backing of promotions company NuTainment. The style is a somewhat light, acoustic guitar-laced take on contemporary urban/R&B. Musically speaking, the overall result is fairly original and engaging; it's Curry's expressively liquid, high-register vocals that elevate this stuff well above the mundane -- I bet one of his solo guitar-and-voice shows would be every bit as satisfying as these full-spectrum versions. Nicely done. (http://www.jafarcurrymusic.com/)

Jafar Curry Music roots it’s soul in The Bahamas , as it cascades down a waterfall into the oceans of life

Jafar is the romantic artist inside the inspiration of sounds , that reflect the crooning & melodic content & structure of Soul & Adult Contemporary audio groove

Introspective lyrical emotive Vox encapsulates the trademark Jafar Falsetto ; Coupled with a Caribbean undertow & vulnerable & sly amorous altruistic intent

Jafar is inspired by other great & legendary artists like Mr. Wonder , Brian McKnight & Babyface ; His musical stance reflects this sheen in his Vocal performance. Tunes like “Hey Lady” showcase this aural area

In “I Need That Girl” the pulse of percussive bottom beat , is finely complimented by a half-time Reggae induced stop-start charm, complimented with acoustic guitar & synth-woodwind splashes

Jafar Curry Music dubs on with a subtle swagger & hip hop fluidity & originality. This flare that Jafar exudes , innately leads toward a bright future. It was a sunny day & Jafar’s music shines towards a sunrise in the clear deep blue sunset sky

"Often, the most insistent and slickly presented acts turn out to be using marketing smarts to compensate for, you know, sucking. But Jafar seems to be bringing the whole package -- industry knowledge, a marketable sound, the will to work it till the wheels come off, and an enviable amount of talent -- to bear. Local artists bent on becoming more than weekend warriors (not that there´s anything wrong with that, either) could take a cue or two from this guy." - Tampa's Best of the Bay 2004 Edition

Bio

Grand nephew of renown Jazz great Nancy Wilson songwriter, vocalist, pianist, guitarist, international entertainer and producer are just a few of the titles associated with the multi-talented Jafar. A consumate live performer, innovator and educator, Jafar's musicianship and high register vocals set him apart from a sea of industry products. With the successful completion of Jafar's first world tour in 2007 under his belt and a rock solid performance history including stops in Rome, Italy, Lisbon, Portugal, London, UK, Barcelona, Spain, Brest, France, Gibraltor, Venezuela and the Caribbean he is prepared with a dazzling five piece ensemble. With songs reminiscent of the timeless Stevie Wonder and the forever legendary Ray Charles, Jafar Curry has drawn comparisons to greats of old and modern musicians like Brian McKnight and Babyface. The Band consist of five phenominal musicians and instruments. Band members include vocalist Wendy Fraser, Andre Lewis on keyboards, Eddie Cooper on bass, Lester Franklin III on Drums and Jafar Curry himself on vocals, piano and guitar.
