Soul Treasures – Amar Khalil – Solitary

15 09 2010

I’ve had Amar Khalil’s Solitary stuck in my head for the past few days. I’m not complaining. For the uninitiated, Amar is a gospel/R&B singer who passed a couple of years on tour as the lead vocalist for Tony! Toni! Tone!

Back in ’05 he released an exemplary inspirational album that straddled the line between gospel and soul effortlessly. It certainly had the stamp of quality you’d associate with the Tonys. It still surprises me that Saadiq and Tony! Toni! Tone! fans are unfamiliar with the album, Where there’s a Will there’s a Way.  It’s all killer material!

Still sounding as fresh as a truck load of July strawberries, Solitary is quite the jam and worth a spin or twelve, even if the string intro does sound a little like The Thong Song. Inspirational indeed! Enjoy!
