B+

The Tour

Genre: R&B; Lead Performer: Mary J. Blige; Producer (group): MCA

On this document of her recent tour, the queen of hip-hop soul truly struts her stuff. Blige jazzily medleys her hits like ?Real Love? with ace covers of such R&B classics as Aretha Franklin?s ?Daydreaming,? blending motifs into each other like an expert DJ. The busy arrangements threaten to overwhelm, but her raw voice pumps out so much emotion it makes the glitz seem insignificant.
