The feeling of being on top yet still in search of another plateau to climb. The sensation of a good love that you always wish could be a greater love. The reunion of two beings kindred in talent and mindset to produce a strong R&B effort that mixes down home blues with the panache and overwhelming flavor of enriched Philly soul.

There, that’s fifty words about Ayah and DJ Jazzy Jeff‘s Back For More project without even having to mention one song on the album. Linking together once more and their first full length collaboration since 4:15 pulled this writer in at SXSW in 2010, Back For More fluctuates between sixties soul, contemporary R&B and a little hip-hop as Ayah herself slips on the Kangol and rocks a B-girl pose for “Notorious”.

Her multiple talents combined with Jeff’s production skills have already merited a strong following on such cuts as “Make It Last” and with both STS and Tona holding her down in guest appearing roles, the future has never been brighter for the Toronto songbird, adding another feather in the cap of her and her longtime friend from Philly.
