Cherrelle's music was one of the soundtracks of my life - social and private - in the late 1980s. Cherrelle's creamy and sensuous voice was oft heard in my small flat (apartment) just off Toorak Road in South Yarra, Melbourne in 1987 to 1990.
Needless to say, many will know that Cherrelle's instrumental music was played, created and produced by those luminaries of the 1980s, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who were responsible for the production of the SOS Band, Alexander O'Neal, Janet Jackson's best album, "Control", The Human League's "Crash" album and several other groups. Jam and Lewis use that wonderful and wild invention of the 1980s, the polyphonic keyboard synthesizer, and, of course, that other amazing gizmo, the Roland TR 808 drum computer.
I always liked the way Jam and Lewis threw caution to the wind and actually played their keyboards on recordings, rather than sequencing everything. They seem to have been happy to leave everything in, even the occasional mistake! Their sounds are twangy and tangy and very smooth sounds and punctuated with stabs and rhythmical punches. Of course, many will compare their production values with those of Prince and that shouldn't surprise anyone, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were former members of the Time, one of the close peers and stable mates of His Purple Highness.
Cherrelle was a splendid performer and it is great to see some of her music available on CD again.
