From The Kansas City Star, “Anita Baker eases back into performing”
This Just In……
“It appears that Anita Baker is close to signing a brand new record deal. The Grammy award winning singer has been without a label since her departure from Atlantic Records four years ago. One rumor claims that Anita is in negotiations with Def Soul Records, a predominately Hip-Hop and Rap record label. Artists currently signed to Def Soul include Kelly Price, Dru Hill and Sisqo. Anita has already contributed her talents to the upcoming album for Soul singer Foxy Brown’s upcoming CD. Foxy is signed to Def Jam Records, a sister company to Def Soul. In the meantime, Anita is currently putting together a brand new tour. Cities already confirmed include Atlantic City, Cleveland and Seattle.” [SmartJock]
From the SF Chronicle, “Jazz at Pearl’s fails to renew its lease.” The jazz club will be closing its doors on 4/30.

    Are you serious? Anita Baker will be in town … I’m crossing my fingers in hope that Anita will make her way to Los Angeles.

  2. Bill says:

    What? No mention of the Grammies?

  3. DJ says:

    So my question to you James is will you only be going the one night or will you be going on both???????

    Anita Baker has signed with Blue Note Record Label. It seems that the album is finished and she is just waiting on the green light to release a first single and the entire Cd.

  5. Dayle says:

    I can’t wait for the new Cd and also a World Tour. Anita Baker has been missed. There is doubt that R&B is not the same without this superstar. Hopefully, I will get to see her in concert.
