Jody Watley – 2019 Summerstage Staten Island. Photography by Sean Jamar.
After slaying a set that leaned more heavily on the disco theme which meant a bit more of my Shalamar repertoire than usual we had an early start to Bethesda. Loved the train ride.. always nice to have a moment of pause looking out at the scenery.
Traveling band..it makes all the difference to enjoy the company you keep while on the road handing business.
The setlist featured a few deep cuts like Skin Deep from the critically acclaimed “Midnight Lounge” full length, “Precious Love” “Nightlife” the classic soul Soulpersona mix with a nod to the late great Phyllis Hyman. Also on the set was current single collaboration with Brian Power “Good Good Reason.”
