Make Some Room

While their tunes have graced pop, R&B and smooth jazz radio for decades, Sade's music has always been out of the box and ahead of its time. "Make Some Room" was the B-side of their 1988 single "Nothing Can Come Between Us", and a recent discovery of ours. Unlike most of the band's music, this track features the group's production in the foreground while lead singer Sade Adu's sparse, sultry vocals complement the soundscape. Like any great song worth covering, this track provided an intriguing palette that compelled us to put some paint where it ain't-- with a little help from Vaughan Octavia on the vocals and Brother Spanky on percussion.
