"How can you make a jazz song out of something that was completely synth-based?" was a question I was asked when I told a friend about the new Nu Shooz single of "I Can't Wait." That's a good question. I don't know how they did it, but it is obvious they are talented musicians because they took their 80s pop hit and turned it into a gorgeous and dreamy jazz ballad.

Valerie Day's voice has not aged a minute. She sounds exactly like how she did in the 80s, perhaps even better. And the wonderful thing is there is no heavy processing on her voice like there was on the 80s Nu Shooz albums. She sounds completely natural, beautiful, perfect.

You can still hear some of those synth melodies now taken over by brass and percussion, and it works wonderfully. While this is a remake of an old song, it has new life and becomes a breath of fresh air.

Valerie and her husband John have been hard at work, performing with other groups in their hometown of Portland, OR. I am so glad they took the time to listen to the requests of their fans for an "I Can't Wait" remake, because this newly re-worked song is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face. I look forward to playing this track on the air the next time I'm in the studio.

Got this thinking I was purchasing remixes of the original version, which would include the one we all know and love. Instead, got an "unplugged" version (actually versions, since there are a few here) of the song. Very cool and a lot different than you'd expect. The big surprise to me is that this lady can actually sing!! She is a very talented vocalist and it really shows here. For that, I think it's a 5-star project.

Would love to hear some other new stuff from this group!

If you like the song from the 80s and want something a little different, but similar, you will like this.

I remember back in the 80s when this song came out, I went and purchased the CD immediately. It has such a simple but effective hook of a bass line. Combine that with Valarie's vocals, it easy to see why it was a hit 20 something years ago. They are using it in TV commercials now (what better endorsement). Seriously, this is a fine effort on all the tracks. Valerie Day's vocals are superb and finding this inspired me to buy some of her other, later stuff. Money well spent.

Two dreamlike slow jazz cuts,followed by the instrumental. Then, awesome danceable hip-hop version. Also recommended the Atlantic compilation of 80's hits with the extended several minutes 12" cut. There is also a different mix on the Rhino disco collection. I think Sadhjii from American Idol should do this song,really house it up. You've got what I been looking for,baby I can't wait. Take me 'S'.

ES UN SENCILLO AGRADABLE QUE TIENE EXCELENTES ARREGLOS UN POCO DIFERENTES AL SENCILLO QUE FUE UN EXITO EN LOS 80`S, PERO TIENE BUENA ESTRUCTUTA.
