We Started Nothing
You may have heard this U.K. boy-girl duo on the iPod commercial featuring the giddy "Shut Up and Let Me Go." There are more fun dance ditties on their debut, even if the cheese factor wears a bit thin.

Love the Woman
After two albums with husband Kenny Lattimore, this classy songbird is back with her first solo disc since 2000. She makes lush R&B for grown-ups, getting jazzy on tunes like the ballad "Give Me Time."

Her second set, a digital-only release, shows that there are plenty of reasons to be grateful for this country singer. Highlights include the tender title cut, featuring Vince Gill, and the child-of-divorce song "'73."

Bringing Back the Funk
This jazz keyboardist-composer taps a funk dream team, including Bootsy Collins and Maceo Parker, for old-school sounds that nod to P-Funk, Kool & the Gang and Earth, Wind & Fire.
