Few other major releases were unlucky enough to fall on the day of MJ's memorial
Maxwell, "BLACKsummers'night" (Columbia)
Smoother than smooth R&B crooner returns with his first album of all new material in eight years. The set is the first in a three-part trilogy. First single, "Pretty Wings" is about letting go of a lost love. Sensuous and gorgeous. Expect several babies to be born nine months from today.
