On the cover of her debut, The Soul Sessions, Joss Stone's face is obscured by a vintage microphone, a deliberate move that emphasized the retro-soul vibe of the LP while hiding the youthful face that The Nearness Of You - Barbra Streisand - The Look Behind Collection have given away that Stone was a mere 16 years old at the time of the album's release.
The point was to put the music before the image and it worked, selling the album to an older audience that might have stayed away, thinking that the teenager sang teen pop. There's no radical revision here -- she still works with many of the same musicians she did on The Soul Sessions, including Betty Wright and Little Beaver -- Killing Time - Joss Stone - Mind there are some subtle shifts in tone scattered throughout the record.
Certain songs are a little brighter and a little more radio-ready than before, there's a more pronounced hip-hop vibe to some beats, and she sounds a little more like a diva this time around -- not enough to alienate older fans, but enough to win some new ones.
The album has a seductive, sultry feel; there's some genuine grit to the rhythms, yet it's all wrapped up in a production that's smooth as silk. By and large, the songs are good, too, sturdily written and hooky, growing in stature with each play. While Stone has developed a tendency to over-sing ever so slightly -- she doesn't grandstand like the post-Mariah divas, but she'll fit more notes than necessary into the simplest phrases -- she nevertheless possesses a rich, resonant voice that's a joy to hear.

A: Enough to make you squirm, get off your ass, and dance close with anybody who'll have you. Then she heard some vintage American Miami soul made by the likes of Latimore, Little Beaver, Betty Wright, Timmy Thomas, and the like, and genuine inspiration took hold.
These jams drip Killing Time - Joss Stone - Mind sweet and hard with tough, sexy soul, and Stone's voice is larger than life. It's true she's been tutored and mentored by Wright and her musical collaborators in the science of groove, but she keeps it raw enough to be Little Red Rooster - The Rolling Stones - The Rolling Stones, Now!. Her reading of Bobby Miller's "Dirty Man," a track associated with Wright, is gutsy and completely believable, and the interplay between Latimore's piano and Beaver's funky, shimmering guitaristry brings Stone's vocal down to street level.
Stone has the former two. She has unique phrasing and a huge voice that Me Siento Bien (I Feel Fine) - Los Beatles* - Para Tí, dips, and slips, never overworking a song or trying to bring attention to itself via hollow acrobatics.
The strings and funky backbeat provided Killing Time - Joss Stone - Mind Thompson on "I've Fallen in Love With You" are chilling in the way they prod Stone to just spill a need out of her heart that one would believe would be beyond her years. And speaking of Thompson, his production of the Stripes tune is more than remarkable; it conveys Jack White's intent but in an entirely new language.
The set closes with Stone's radical reread of the Isleys' "For the Killing Time - Joss Stone - Mind of You," a daunting and audacious task.

This is a debut that, along with those fine practitioners in the nu-soul underground such as Peven Everett, Julie Dexter, Yas-rah, Fertile Ground, and a few others, is solid proof that soul is alive and well.
