Madoca's Mysterious Ways CD
Over the past decade Madoca has become one of my favorite smooth jazz artists. She has indicated that some of her music was influenced by keyboard legends like Bob James, George Duke and Joe Sample; plus another treasure from Japan "Keiko Matsui".

I am honored to have "Mysterious Ways" in my music library and would like to share my thoughts on a few tracks.

1. Eternal Summer - just the spark I needed to get my listening pleasure started. It will slow down for a moment let you catch your breath then is on again.

4. Chillin' In The Shade - just a beautiful song, that should be a classic on various Quiet Storm segments.

6. Soul Food - is a funky to help me burn those extra calories. A great song to cruise in your vehicle and have people ask who is that performing?

If you are able please check this CD out and add to your collection.

Madoca's Recent Successes Put A New Spotlight On Her Debut Album
Madoca’s Recent Successes Put A New Spotlight on Her Debut Album
With the recent success of Madoca’s “Illusion of Love” album, fans have been searching for earlier works from the Japanese-born, jazz composer/keyboardist. This spark of new interest has prompted distributors to resubmit her debut album, “Mysterious Ways.”
“Mysterious Ways” and “Illusion of Love” have a lot in common with each other. Both have songs that exhibit more of a mainstream smooth jazz style than the bold jazz-fusion style of her second album, “Amethyst.” However, fans who have adopted “Illusion of Love” as one of their favorites will be pleasantly surprised by songs contained on her first project.
Those who have had the opportunity to see Madoca’s exciting live performances will be thrilled to hear “Soul Food,” -- one of the lively numbers she often includes in her repertoire. Among the surprises on the album are the rich vocals of bassist/ singer Prince Redd. Madoca gladly gives him the spotlight on songs like “Lullaby,” knowing that she has enough of her hot instrumentals on the album to share in the attention,
New Madoca fans should quickly add “Mysterious Ways” to their favorites list and those who heard the album when it was first released should revisit the work of an artist whose fan base continues to grow.
