Berkeley High grad Carmen Jones, who has sung with Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, and Jamie Foxx, moves two ways on her four-song debut. Songs like "Microdancing" (with Prince and the Revolution's Doctor Fink on keyboards) and "Mrs. Jones" mine early-'80s electro-funk. Soulful R&B ballads comprise the other half. The result is jarring but effective.
