It has been almost 40 years since Jimmy “Jam” Harris and Terry Lewis have been promising an album under their own names. And now we finally get some grown folks’ music in the form of Jam and Lewis Volume One. The duo called into Sway In The Morning to talk about the making of the album.
Volume One features only one of the many stars mooted for the Secret: Morris Day (who guests with fellow ex-Time man Jerome Benton and the Roots on the finale, “Babylove”). The bulk of the other guests — Sounds of Blackness, Mary J. Blige, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, The-Dream, Babyface, Toni Braxton, and Usher — began their professional associations with Jam & Lewis during or after the 1990s.
