Jon Lucien is known as one of the most focused and emotional balladeers to ever step in front of a microphone, but it’s his soothing baritone voice that really sets him apart from the rest. On Rashida, Lucien creates an amalgamation of many cultures with his Caribbean folk meets r&b soul/ jazz infused orchestral arrangements. His emotionally charged intensely personal songs are as sublime they are intimate, and set a cinematic breezy feeling that few soul singers can conjure so perfectly. Like many great soul records, this is ultimately an album about romantic love, but the romance here is a transcendent, spiritual force. Romance as a metaphor for the love of God or the love of all humanity, Rashida is one of Lucien’s best-loved albums and would be essential listening to those who are so amorously inclined.
