Need something new to refresh your music playlist? Lucky for you, every week we hear from our experts on what's the best new music for the week. 

Music supervisor Morgan Rhodes joins us this week with for her reviews, here are her selections:

Daniel Caesar

What I've come to expect from Daniel Caesar is future soul music with gospel references and double entendres.  The 21-year-old Toronto native has already made a name as a R&B/Soul singer with influences coming from gospel and rock. Here's a video of him performing one of his earlier releases, Get You.


Zara McFarlane 

Almost 10 years after the death of composer Max Roach,  Zara McFarlane reimagines a track from his 1960 seminal album "We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite" expanding its spiritual jazz bones.

Jill Scott with Nils Wulker, 
"Worth The Wait" (Mark De Clive Lowe Remix)

Jilly from Philly collaborates with Nils Wulker on his latest project ON.  The track, "Worth The Wait" gets a house music reboot that speeds up the tempo without losing any of the soulfulness.
