The Jack Moves

Yet another hot new soul find: The Jack Moves may take their name from Straight Outta Compton, but they're straight outta New Jersey and have more in common with contemporaries The Olympians' meditative NYC soul sound than gangsta rap. Their debut 45 A Fool For You would sit comfortably in the early 70s Stax canon (think The Soul Children, Johnnie Taylor and The Mad Lads) but for its smooth pleading and deceptively intricate craft it gives its biggest nod to George Benson.
