Calvin Richardson's 2.35 PM album of last year barely caused a blip beyond the urban press. In a world that didn't send Angie Stone's Wish I Didn't Miss You to number one, this is nothing to be ashamed of. Calvin himself performed on La Stone's Mahogany Soul record showing that her choice of collaborators hasn't always lacked credibility. (And I think you know of whom I speak).
I've Got To Move is cut from the same jewel of neo / retronuevo soul that Stone, Alicia Keys and Lauryn Hill have found so precious. It gives Calvin's voice, steeped in R&B history, enough room to manoeuvre without resorting to melisma, the last refuge of the soulless.
I've Got To Move ain't gonna set the world alight. But since D'Angelo went all quiet on us, this is a genre that's been dominated by women. There's just enough here to indicate that there's a soul man in the ring ready to punch his weight.
