Over the years, Brenda Boykin has developed a worldwide reputation as a leader in jazz and blues vocal interpretation. This is chiefly due to her 'jump up style', which she defines as being a combination of 'bourbon and cornbread'. Album opener "Feel Me" is almost funky house but with added jazz trumpet and percussive embellishments. Beyond this "Mambo Jambo" is a Latino workout, "This Maybe Game" visits the jazzy side of the swinging 60s, "Where Is It Written" explores a vintage Nina Simone sound and "Stone Mad" is an up-tempo bluesy mambo hybrid. Also included is a pumping house remix of "Pa-Pade Swing" by Koko Chanel.
