Jazzyfatnastees

Vocalists Tracey Moore and Mercedes Martinez make up Jazzyfatnastees. In 1993, they were part of a vocal quartet that had landed a deal with Tommy Boy. But by 1995, the deal had fallen through. After drifting for a few years, Moore and Martinez found themselves in Philadelphia, their quartet reduced to a duo by departures. The two had known the guys in the Roots for a few years, having opened shows for them in the past. For their debut album as Jazzyfatnastees, Moore and Martinez signed with Motive Records, the Roots' imprint at MCA. The Once and Future, their self-written and -produced debut album, arrived in 1999. Filled with sunny harmonies and laid-back grooves, the album was ahead of its time, or at least ahead of the neo-soul movement, which would peak a few years later with the arrival of songbirds like Macy Gray and India.Arie. Nevertheless, the Jazzys persevered. They founded Black Lily, a showcase for artists of the very non-categories -- neo-funk and -soul, organic hip-hop -- in which they found themselves. They also began work on their sophomore effort, which arrived in September of 2002. The Tortoise & the Hare, released through the duo's new deal with Coolhunter/Ryko distribution, continued to hone Moore and Martinez's soulful, modern, and definitely groovy sound. With the rest of the music world having caught up to their sound, Jazzyfatnastees planned a third album for 2003. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

I saw them at the Five Spot in Philly. Still the best place that I have ever been to hear live music! I had just moved to Philly at the advent of the movement! If y'all have been there you know what I mean! 5 bucks to get in and the maddest vibe ever! I miss that place!
Love them and yeah would love to hear a comeback album!
Still playing their first album! !!
I truly agree with the last comment, they are the Queens of Neo Soul
These ladies represented not just individualit y in their masterpieces before neo soul came into popularity but they represented strong women who can accomplish it all and persistency. They need a comeback!
Ok Ladies where u at I still play it 1st album here in 2013
Id love to see what beauty they could birth in a new album because both albums I currently own of theirs are so inspirationa l . . . Jazzyfatnast e e s , I'm waiting!!
Love these ladies. First heard them in the movie "In Too Deep"
Waiting on a new album!
Please get back together and record a new album!
Ahead of their time indeed, even for neo-soul. Theonceandfu t u r e was a classic album (it's not on Pandora). I know at least one of them still performs with the Roots but I wish they would make another album.

Man, these girls are soooo underated. Got on to them in my college days around '99... been hooked ever since...
I don't know how they were ever slept on! I love them!!
These ladies are fantastic, they have a great groove and give neo-soul something to stand up and be very proud of! Keep on groovin ladies and shine!

The ladies sound gooooood! Brings the neo-soul to life.. Thank you!
The best group in their genre. I was ready for them during their "before the world was ready for them" era. So keep the sounds coming.
