Motown is a timeless genre that has no expiration date. Bruno Mars is heavily influenced by the sound and there is even a Broadway musical called Motown The Musical, based on the life of Motown founder Berry Gordy, that began performances July 12th. Through hours of perusing on my Spotify, I stumbled upon this album The Supremes Sing Rodgers & Hart. It was a combination of my first musical love – jazz – and now the best of – Motown. It’s heaven to hear. It has Diana Ross swinging and crooning sweet jazz sounds. The vocals are not by any means Ella or Billie, but they provide a refreshing sound to the classic pop jazz of the times. Have a listen, you’ll be indulgent from the start!
