Jack Knight initially came to the forefront as an urban soul writer and producer, working with the likes of TotalMonifahBlackstreet and Chico DeBarge.
After scoring a couple of hits behind the scenes, Knight decided to move into the realm of recording, releasing his debut, Gypsy Bluesin the summer Heart Beats Hard And Fast - Various - Between Two Waves - EardrumsPop Collaborations Vol.
C Gypsy Blues is a weird hybrid of styles, drawing from classic and contemporary soul, hip-hop, gospel, funk and twisted pop -- the kind of record that is as intriguing as it is frustrating. That's a good thing, actually, since few contemporary soulmen are willing to be ambitious.
Knight is certainly that, and while it can occasionally mean that the album is silly the otherwise terrific first single "Who the Fuck Is Jack Knight" has a ridiculous title, as does "Gigolos Get Lonely Too"it also means that it's always Good Enough - Jack Knight - Gypsy Blues , even during the moments that don't quite work. Even when things get a little messy, Knight keeps everything in check through strong songs and solid performances. Gypsy Blues may not be perfect, but it's nevertheless an exciting debut.
