HUB EXCLUSIVE: Jeffrey Osborne Releases First ‘Old School R & B Album’ In Years, And The Wait was ‘Worth It All”

Jeffrey OsborneYou remember the songs:  “Love Ballad.”  “Shine On.”  “On The Wings Of Love.”  “Stay With Me Tonight.”  “We’re Going All The Way.”  And, of course, “You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song).” 

As the artist grew artistically, he made forays into jazz, covers, and even holiday music.  As great as those projects were, fans of true R & B missed him. 

As if guided by some divine divining rod, Osborne has just released an excellent collection of new, old school R & B.  With his brand new Worth It All album, Osborne is solidly back where he belongs and sounding as good as ever.  But during our EXCLUSIVE interview, he told THE HUB that his long-awaited return to old school R & B almost didn’t happen.

“Originally, it was not supposed to be this kind of an album,” the 70 year old icon said by phone.  “My last record was an album of jazz standards, and on the merit of that album, I was asked to do a smooth jazz record.  As I sat down and started writing songs for the album, I realized that my writing was taking me back to my roots, back to old school R & B.  I’m extremely happy with how it turned out.”
