Jessie Ware - Wildest Moments (Acoustic)
New York makes strange things happen.
Jessie Ware performs at the House of Blues Oct. 21. Noah Pais has the lowdown on the English Sade-soul singer-songwriter’s 2012 debut LP Devotion:
A standout among the crowded field of recent excellent R&B LPs, Devotion made an instant star out of the former supporting player, thanks largely to Ware’s commanding performance on three endlessly playable singles, which prop up the album like a tripod: the thorax-lodging power ballad “Wildest Moments,” perpetual-emotion “Running” and, best of all, effervescent sampler “If You’re Never Gonna Move,” whose Big Pun-referencing original title (“110%”) and recurring clip (“Carvin’ my initials in your forehead”) had to be altered after the late rapper’s estate filed suit.
