Patti Austin The Real
Produced by David Pack
A beautiful album of lovingly performed
standards is Patti Austin's best album. Includes an amazing Smoke
Gets In Your Eyes.
This album is redeemed by two awesome
performances of the standards The End Of A Love Affair and I'll
Jeffrey Osborne One
Love, One Dream
Osborne uses his awesome voice to great
effect here. I especially like All Because Of You.
Produced by Mark Kibble, Cluade V. McKnight, III & Mervyn E. Warren
The debut of this gospel acapella sextet is
a must have for anyone who enjoys vocal arrangements.
Luther Vandross Any
Produced by Luther Vandross & Marcus Miller
His best stuff tends to be his
"reinterpretations" and in this case the remake of Love Won't
Let Me Wait is the standout track.
Produced by Stan Sheppard & James Varner
The Manhatttans lead vocalist doesn't get
much acclaim but he's one of the best around. Features Take Me
Where You Want To.
George Benson Twice
Somewhat disappointing my GB standards but
it does include the Chicago-esque Starting All Over.
Dont Be Cruel
This former New Edition had a surprise hit
with this breakout album. Features My Prerogative and Roni.
Siedah Garrett Kiss
Produced by Rod Temperton
Siedah's first album after her big duet with
Michael Jackson and Rod Temperton's debut as a producer. Doesn't
quite live up to expectations but is interesting nonetheless.
