This album is presented as rhythm and blues. I feel it is jazz. SO I am left with a wonderment as to what is the difference between the two genres.
At any rate, Vanessa Williams has a very elegant picture on the cover, and the music is just that, very elegant. However, most of the songs are long and drawn out. There were a couple songs I liked more than others, mostly because they had more character and energy. “Loving You” uses a swear word and faster tempo to give it some emotion, and it works. “Come on Strong” uses a bass riff at the fist which sets the mood for the entire song, and this is my favorite. “Close to You” has a very nice lyric. This song also has a section in Spanish talking about how many tear, which I like. “October Sky” is a duet with Javier Colon which is also very nice. However most of the songs are forgettable tunes with a strong jazz flavor. If you love Vanessa Williams, or enjoy this type of music then this is a good CD. However for me, it gets old fast.
