Nikka Costa

can'tneverdidnothin' (Virgin)

In a post-Joss Stone world, can'tneverdidnothin' is primed to bring Nikka Costa's brand of blue-eyed funk to the masses. It's carefully orchestrated and expertly jammed out, from multiple appearances by Lenny Kravitz, Questlove, and urban session man James Poyser to sundry raunchy licks, hard funk, and wise-girl vibes. Only the first cut, "Till I Get to You," approaches the rhythmic frisson of "Like a Feather," the salvo that introduced Costa in 2002. But can'tneverdidnothin' has plenty of jams, including "Till I Get to You," "Around the World," and "Happy in the Morning," that will get you through the night, although you may have trouble remembering them when morning comes.
