In “Uncovered Soul” Kosins (ASCAP awarded composer & lyricist) teams up with Kamau Kenyatta, the stellar long time producer of Gregory Porter, she will re-unite with her soulful and groove skills. A contrast to her previously released and highly acclaimed album, To the Ladies Of Cool“, "Uncovered Soul" follows in the footsteps of Kamau Kenyatta’s three Grammy nominated, Gregory Porter projects. The Grammy nominated CD “Water,” the Grammy nominated single, “Real Good Hands,” from the CD “Be Good” and the Grammy Award winning CD “Liquid Spirit.” “Uncovered Soul” is based on a sonic worldview shaped by the interpersonal and musical landscape of Detroit in the late 60s and 70s. “Uncovered Soul” however, is not merely an urban reality: It is also the common thread that binds the relevancy of the words and music of Curtis Mayfield, Gene McDaniels, Bill Withers,The Neville Brothers, Amos Lee and Burt Bacharach to the present. Three original compositions were added to “Uncovered Soul” to provide a contemporary point of view.

Reviews

SoulandJazzandFunk - "Uncovered Soul"

"'Uncovered Soul’ is sophisticated, sensitive soul and jazz delivered with commitment, artistry and respect for the genre. With production from Gregory Porter collaborator Kamau Kenyatta , this should be the album to deliver Ms Kosins to a wider audience." - SoulandJazzandFunk

Jazz Weekly - "Uncovered Soul"

"In the past, vocalist Kathy Kosins has delivered albums ranging from 50s vo-cool to modern soul. This time around, she teams with producer Kamau Kenyatta and sounds like she was dropped into a 70s Soultrain session. The team of Mitch Forman/key, Kevin Axt/b, Eric Harland/dr, Gregory Moore/g, Curtis Taylor/tp, Munyungo Jackson/perc and Kenyatta/p deliver a retro R&B feel that has Kosins singing with a vocal Afro. Vintage wacka wooka and string droplets from Moore’s guitar delver a mellow soul of “Martha” and Don’t Get Me Started,” with Kosins in strong and earthy voice. Spacey bell bottomed keyboards team up on “Voodo” and Kosins’ own “Uncovered Soul” while she sounds a bit Jarreau-ish when going jazzy with Kenyatta on “Can We Pretend.” She has a gospel growl on “Dreamin’/Dramin’s Gonna Pull Me Through” and gets passionately romantic on the platform shoes-d “A to B 5:11.” A pair of singles have Kosins in a funkied mood with “Could You Be Me” and the percussive “Seria Voce Com Eu.” All that’s missing is an intro by Don Cornelius" - Jazz Weekly
