Let me get this out of the way up front. Rahsaan Patterson is my favorite male solo artist, and he has held that position for several years now. Any male solo artist who is even thinking about taking that slot should purchase “After Hours” and study the art of making high quality Grown Folks Music. Note to aspiring male artists reading this: After the purchase of “After Hours” you still have a longgggggg way to go buddy, but purchase “After Hours” anyway.
“The Only One for Me” properly opens the disc by setting the tone, letting you know that the cd will be grown, sexy and fun all at the same time.
“I Always Find Myself” is in one word….funky. I don’t use the word funky loosely, either. You can almost visualize Rahsaan and the background singers standing at microphones while onlookers bop their heads hard to the beat.
“So Hot” lets you know that Rahsaan is not just the master of slow jams. He will also provide the opening track to ask that person you’ve been checking out across the room for a dance.
