Fabulous (2002)

Released in 2002, Fabulous was Jamila's foray into the funky, soulful R&B and disco that inspired her as a child. Grooving bass lines and driving guitar riffs on songs like "Music" and "Good Things" are a true departure from her early days of jazz and blues.

“I have had the pleasure of seeing Jamila perform live in person, and it is, in a word: fabulous. For those that don't or can't get out to L.A., do yourself a favor and pick up this CD of funked-out jams and dramatic, moving ballads. There is magic in the way "Don't Worry" starts out fast and upbeat, and dissolves into a gospel-esque passionate bridge that shows off the power of her voice, before returning to its rump-shaking chorus. "Good Things" will test the power of your speakers as they thump, and you nod your head to thick bass and whimsical keys. But don't take my word for it. Pick it up.”

“'Funky and Full o' Flavor...' Jamila, I just popped in your CD and was very pleasantly surprised. First, your voice is strong, and I could 'feel' what you’re trying to say - both the slow and fast songs. Second, the music arrangement is pro - obvious quality musicians. Third, this sounds like you took the time to do it right. I would definitely like to check out a live show when I am in L.A. Keep up the good work.”
