Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CHOCOLATE GENIUS

Swansongs

2010-09-13

Marc Anthony Thompson used to perform in California under his given name, but since moving to New York, he uses the moniker Chocolate Genius. Included under this moniker is a loose conglomerate of supporting artists. This musical collective has at times included John Medeski, Chris Whitley, Meshell Ndgeocello, and Chris Wood among others. This fourth album in the Black Music/Godmusic/Black Yankee Rock series is pretty stuff. Well-written and nicely produced, this is low-key music for quiet moments. Rebecca Ruth
