I can't say enough for the pleasure I get from listening to Med. Soul. When I'm listening to the radio in my car and a soothing melody, like hip hop or rap comes on, not to mention punk, I pop the Med Soul CD in and, often without realizing it, I am smiling a few minutes later. Wherever the music begins it's always something I enjoy. When I'm listening, alone in my apartment, I usually start dancing. I have to be alone because I'm a terrible dancer but even a terrible dancer can get carried away. Keep singing and playing. I'm looking forward to your next CD."
