Jai's debut album, Heaven, is a stylish amalgam of jazzy sophisti-pop, Motown, swinging '60s rock, trip-hop and contemporary soul. While the songwriting in Heaven is uneven, Jai's voice is consistently thrilling, soaring to new soulful heights. That voice -- along with songs that show how powerful his updated blue-eyed soul can be, like "I Believe" and "Don't Give Me Away" -- is what makes Heaven such a promising and successful debut.
