Thread Starter 

I have virtually nothing in the genre.

Looking for the material with great beats...heavy bass... but open to every sub-genre.

 

What are the must-owns in the space?

 

Heres what I have:

 

Banks

Frank Ocean

Maxwell

R Kelly 

Sade

Stevie Wonder

Wow! No takers?

 

Okay some for you:

 

The Neville Brothers

 

Try "Fiyo on the Bayou", "Treacherous: A History of the Neville Brothers", "Yellow Moon" or "Brother's Keeper"

 

and anything by the one and only Ray Charles

The Snarky Puppy/Lalah duo is spectacular.

What album is this one and, do they have guest singers on all of their albums or are they predominantly instrumental?

That Snarky Puppy/Lalah Hathaway tune (it won a Grammy for best R&B vocal BTW!) can be found on their Family Dinner Vol. 1. It's the only one of their 7 records featuring vocals. I would classify the band as a Contemporary Jazz/Funk unit of the highest caliber! Very exciting band! Their next record wil be them plus a symphony orchestra! Check 'em out on Youtube, you'll probably wind up bit by the Pup!wink.gif

Check out the Numero Group's eccentric soul collection. They have alot of stuff and most of its great.
