After putting out three solid and exceptional albums in the second half of the ’90s and the early Millennium (Urban Hang Suite is one of the albums that ushered in the Neo-Soul movement), the very gorgeous singer disappeared in 2001 to do less touring and recording and more…living. He cut his luscious afro off and went incognito. After years of believing the Neo-Soul-head was going to go the route of LBoogie and D’Angelo and stay gone for long, Maxwell re-appeared in 2008, afro-less, to help do a tribute for Al Green at the BET Awards. From then on, he came back out of hiding, went on a comeback tour (I went to a show in St. Louis. Amazing!!!), and dropped the outstanding album, BLACKsummers’night. That album is supposed to be part of a three-part trilogy that he announced, but we still haven’t seen it. But no worries for now, because the singer recently announced a six-day summer tour across the country that will help him showcase his newest music. Thank goodness!
