Album Notes
Soulful. Awesome. Pervasive. These words describe the dynamic sounds of internationally renowned R&B group Yamama'nym. Created in the Spring of 2002, this super group has snapped the bonds of being described as merely another band from the Baltimore/DC area and are taking the international music scene by storm.
Hand picked by Tre Barr (producer/writer) and Dennis Turner (music director/bass player), Yamama'nym, was formed in 2002 as a collective of eclectic musicians and vocalists with diverse musical backgrounds. Combining sultry southern soulful sounds with a touch of uptown Jazz and downtown R&B swagger, healthy servings of soul, and pinches of gospel, Yamama'Nym has been stirring up audiences since their inception. With exceptionally vibrant vocalists, and perhaps some of the best live musicians in all the land, Yamama'Nym evoke feelings of 70's nostalgia and New Millennium attitude with their youthful appearance, yet seasoned performances, often being compared to acts of past and present the way they bring the overall Yamama'Nym experience to fans. Over the past year and a half, they have played on many stages abroad and have left their signature "soulful" style sticking to the noggins of unsuspecting audiences. Staying hungry and humble, paying their dues Yamama'Nym travels the map to bring 'real' music to those who have been longing for it.
The band members are from the Washington, DC and Baltimore, Maryland area. Yamama'Nym's debut album "2A.M." (Outta Control Entertainment 2003) has enjoyed international acclaim, reaching the hearts and minds of soul aficionados in the US over to the Canary Islands, from the U.K. to Japan, the band's strengths of Soul, R&B, Jazz and Hip-Hop help drive their musical vision to an ever expanding and embracing audience, it is a perfect blend of soul and jazz. It's what's been missing from today's popular R&B (Fan, CDBABY.com). Now with the second album entitled Due Time slated for a Spring 2005 release, audiences can expect funkier upbeat songs, with signature mid-tempo grooves and soul touching ballads.
The music moves with pulsating rhythms by Marcus Jackson on drums and Dennis Turner on bass combined with melodies by Samuel Prather on keys. Dynamic vocal blessings of veteran Alison Carney along with newcomers Jason Hill, Liz Miller, and K.J. Dennis (doing double duty on second keys and vocals) add an awesome dimension to this band.
Yamama'nym recently wowed our military troops in Okinawa, Japan (mainland) and South Korea. They have shared the stage with such notable national recording artists as Rhian Benson, Fertile Ground, Cooolies Hot Box, and Lyfe at the African American Heritage Festival in Baltimore, Maryland. They have also performed at the legendary Soul Café in New York City and a wall shaking performance at the Hard Rock Café in Atlanta, Georgia.
So take a listen and get back to the soulful funky sounds that are the roots of R&B and jazz. Take a listen to Yamama'nym.

BET.com "Listen Up" - Reviewer KeKe

True Entertainers
I saw this band perform in japan and i had one of the best times. i'd never heard of them before and i didn't know why. their sound is so soothing, jazzy, and chill. they had my head bobbin and my feet moving almost the whole performance. each person is a true assest to the band. the beautiful ladies with their geourgeous vocals. homie on the drums was gettin it. mr. guitar was jammin. on the keys-oh-they set it, and the frontman was blowin. they truly put on a show. they are original. i was lucky enough to chat with them a little bit and receive an autographed cd.

Yamama'nym is back with a great second album
Baltimore's (DC's) Yamama'nym is back with a great second album -- one that's even richer and more fully-formed than the first! As before, the group's got a really collaborative spirit -- one that draws on a wide range of talents from its many players, yet which also comes across with a really clear, cohesive sound overall. The album steps nicely from mellow ballads into funkier material then back again into easier modes -- but never loses the sweetly soulful personality that makes the group so great -- and the album is laced with some really great interlude tracks that even further deepen the group's tapestry of sound. Titles include "Beautiful", "Celestial Joy", "My Life", "Looking At Me", "Groove", "Just Stay", "Special Kinda Love", "Due Time", and "On My Own".

Who is Yamama'Nym? (for the ebonically challenged that's "yo mama and 'nem")
Xan, one of the musical connections I have made through this blog (and a very sweet, poetic soul who keeps me laughing through email) kept a sista on her toes when she asked about them. I had put them on the backburner and probably never would have gotten around to it if not for her. When I asked her to write a few words about them, these are some of her comments, "I like their style ...Kinda like Kindred the Family Soul" "Their transition was nice. From jazz, to R&B, to gospel, etc. They're pretty high in my book right about now". Her favorites are "Celestial Joy", "Beautiful" and "Obsession". Thank you Xan, there will be a pop quiz later, LOL

It’s not just Due Time…it’s Due Respect
Listening to Yamama’nym, you can be fooled into thinking they’ve been around for years, and you’ve got the unenviable task of trying to find loads of previous albums ahead of you. But that’s not the case. Formed in the spring of 2002, this, in music terms, just about makes them toddlers, but toddlers with a lot going for them. “Due Time” is the sophomore release for this talented crew (the debut “2am” is currently on order as I type) and delivers the sounds that us here at FJ’s have been advocating and enjoying for a while now. To my everlasting shame, the album has been in the collection for at least a couple of months, but has only recently been pushed to a position of prominence, which is one of the downsides to cataloguing your in-tray in alphabetical order. The album automatically gets a couple of stars for having an unprecedented 21 tracks on it, including the Bonus track, but before you get too excited, 6 of them are intro’s and interludes, but even so, it’s still good value for money. Anyone expecting an even split of up tempo floor-fillers, mid-tempo grooves and laid-back vibes, will be surprised. A lot of this is chilled-out to the point of needing an overcoat to listen to it. But don’t let that put you off. Almost every track is a winner and some of them are outright Olympic Champions. The title track “Due Time” kicks off proceedings in earnest and is a wonderful track by any ones definition. Jazzy, funky, soulful and inspirational all in one sublimely assembled package this is Century 21’s alternative to “Optimistic”. “Celestial Joy” is a light and breezy ballad, reminiscent of those soul-stirring moments produced by Mint-Condition. An uplifting ballad? Sounds strange, but it’s true. Make sure you listen to this with headphones and turned up nice and loud for the drumming, which is sensational. “Beautiful” is another exquisite love-song, though you might hear strains that remind you of “My Cherie Amour”, but there’s nothing wrong with that. “My Life” brings it down to the ultimate chill factor. This introspective piece is listened to in total darkness, when you’re at piece with yourself and the universe in general. If self-motivation is a quality that’s lacking, this will undoubtedly provide some much needed assistance. If you found yourself being moved by Mary J Blige’s “The Love I Never Had”, this will transport your emotions to another continent. When it comes to sweet downbeat soul and RnB, then look no further than “Brand New”, I have to admit I prefer the bass-line and the verses to the chorus, but the whole thing is still nice. Describing “Looking At Me” as just another laid-back groove is the ultimate insult. This track has made its way onto the all-time after-dark list and every time I hear it, it moves up another couple of places in the standings. The first few bars of “Obsession (Gonna Be With Me)” has the plink-plunk keyboard intro that made Mary J’s “I Love You” an instant classic. Whether by design or accident, it doesn’t really matter, because this is divine. The track itself has more of a Club Nouveau meets Shae Jones feel to it and has to be one of the best tunes on the album. Regular review readers will know I’m not a great fan of electric guitar solo’s, but this one is worth listening to over and over. If you’ve been keeping an eye, and an ear, on the Top5 over the past few weeks, you’ll be familiar with “Groove”. There’s not really much that can be said about how good this tune is. It’s simple, enigmatic and utterly entrancing. The lyrics are uncomplicated to the point where you find yourself just following the advice and grooving to the perfect mid-tempo beat and angelic background vocals. “Special Kinda Love” is a Special Kinda Tune. I wouldn’t recommend listening to it on your own, especially if you’re in any way emotionally fragile. It could just push you over the edge. It’s the ideal lovers track. “A Chance To Love you” indulges in a bit of the jazzy vibe that until now was merely hinted at, but not really delivered. If you like your jazz as smooth as puréed Strawberries & Bananas, then this for you. Strangely, after chilling for the majority of the album, the track called “Just Chill”, is not chilled as much as the ones that came before. This is more of a mid-tempo groove beautifully fusing the RnB and jazzy elements with sublime ease. The Remixed version of “Love Don’t” is the bonus track on offer, and that brings this to a perfect close. It’s 70 minutes of superior soul that cannot be overlooked.

Overall…Is It Funky?....Or Is It Junky?

It’s not just Due Time…it’s Due Respect.

Great cd!
Wonderful cd! Well worth the wait!


Every song on this cd is a great listen. The music, the vocals, all arranged brilliantly. I've been telling everyone about Due Time and advised them it's a good purchase. I hate buying a CD and only 1 or 2 songs at the least 3 are the only ones I listen to. I listen to all the songs on this CD.


This CD is number 1 on the rotation it has the lively beats to get the day going and the soulful sounds to relax after a long day of work.


This collection of songs is PHENOMENAL! I was instantly drawn into the CD and didn't want to open my eyes back to reality until it was over. Great to listen to with a good glass of wine! LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT!!!


Absolutely Great!!!!
My wife and I love neo-soul and we can't stop listening to this CD. If you liked their first CD, you will definitely appreciate this one.
