Every week we get to review dozens of new releases to consider for airplay on the SMOOTH JAZZ NETWORK. This week we were blown away by MAYSA's incredibly smooth rendition of "Love Is A Battlefield". It's the lead single and title track to her new solo release just out a few weeks ago. Check out MAYSA on the SMOOTH JAZZ NETWORK!
•Grammy Nominee and Soul Train Award winner Maysa
holds unique status in the world of R&B/Jazz. Her incomparably
lush, sensuous vocals landed her at the top of the
Billboard Contemporary Jazz and R&B charts, and garnered
her legions of loyal, loving fans. As featured
vocalist of the UK super group Incognito, core member of
Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove and, of course, through her
own albums and concerts, Maysa has long been thrilling
R&B and Jazz audiences!
•Love Is A Battlefield, which features Maysa's reimagining
of the songs that have inspired her throughout her lifetime,
is far and away the most sensuous and heartfelt
recording of her brilliant career. Teaming up with hit making
producers Chris "Big Dog" Davis (Will Downing, Kim
Burrell, George Clinton), Jason Miles (Luther Vandross,
Miles Davis, Chaka Khan), and The Heavyweights (Regina
Belle, All-4-One), Maysa digs deep to deliver the soulful,
jazz-inflected performances the world has come to love!!

superstars as Tevin Campbell (Can We Talk), Pat Benatar
(Love Is A Battlefield), The Isley Brothers (Footsteps In

Love) and much more!
