2004 release from this soul legend whose songs continue to be heard in their original versions and re-invented contemporary versions- from Marvin Gaye,Qunicy Jones and Minnie Riperton to Maxwell, G-Unit and Brandy, to name a few. Blending his jazz and soul roots with the rhythms of Brazil, this collection of songs feature his sensual and soulful vocals along with the talents of Brazilian guitarist Sandro Albert- naming it "R & BOSSA". Lyrically, Ware is a spiritually inspired messenger of love, an optimistic poet who dispenses doses of wisdom along with poignant prayers of oneness. He and Albert dressed the tracks luxuriously with intimate acoustic guitar riffs, classy piano flourishes, cinematic string sounds and Bossa Nova percussion.
