The Chicago-born vocalist Miki Howard burst on the scene in 1987 and showed a lot of promise with her hits "Come Share My Love," and "Love Under New Management." She even had the chops to play Billie Holiday in the movie Malcolm X. This radio-friendly release is Howard's first record since her 2001 CD, Three Wishes. Co-produced by smooth jazz saxophonist Kim Waters and Chris "Big Dog" Davis, Howard's Aretha Franklin/Mavis Staples-influenced vocals update ten '70s R&B Quiet Storm classics, from the Tina Turner-inspired Ann Pebbles hit "I Can't Stand the Rain" and The Captain and Tennille's "Do That To Me One More Time" to Natalie Cole's "Inseparable" and Marlena Shaw's "Go Away Little Boy." All told, Howard's husky contralto still coos and grooves, as evidenced by the title track originally made by Sylvia Robinson, and Boz Scaggs's Blue-eyed soul classic, "Lowdown." Welcome back, Miki! --Eugene Holley, Jr.

Not sure what Miki's personal situation is, because in recent years, Miki would release an album and then disappear for years at a time -- most recently taking 5 years between her last, lackluster Peak album, "Three Wishes" and this one. However, this more than makes up for the wait! Miki is in fine voice, and the song selections are stellar. There are several surprises, including soulful, sultry readings of the Captain & Tennille's "Do That To Me One More Time", Boz Scaggs' "Lowdown", and the title tune. However, out of the 10 songs, there isn't a bad song in the bunch. The only complaint I have is that there could have been a few more songs included. But that's a minor quibble, and hopefully there will be a Volume 2 without having to wait another 5 years!

Miki Howard is a rare artist who is captured in this tremendous set at the peak of her amazing vocal ability & deeply passionate way of emoting like nobody else around...every song taken to a new dimension that will give complete pleasure to anyone who enjoys a great with an awesome voice! Anyone who has enjoyed these amazing classic songs over the years, don't miss this stunning and beautifully performed collection of classics. Miki Howard is riveting and does each standard as they have never been done before making one fall in love with each and every one of these great songs all over again...incredibly talented Miki Howard is THE voice of her generation and beyond. Bravo Miki and thank you for this wondrous musical treat, "Which Way Is Up" is a wild funky jam that should be released as a single that easily with exposure should go all the way to the top, hopefully winning Miki a richly earned "Grammy Award"! Bravo Miki, this collection is a winner...

I jsut purchased this CD and I am thinking that Miki is sounding really good!! Her song selection is good as well. the only thing I will say is that I am looking for new/original music from Miki Howard. Her style is soooo unique that when she covers a song, it ultimately sounds different. She makes it her own. But, I would love to here her sing orignal music like "Baby, Be Mine" or "Not Like You Do" (with Norman Brown) etc.

If you like Miki howard (like I do) and you don't mind artists covering music (doing remakes) then this is the CD for you!!!

Buy it!!

PS. She does a bang up job on " Inseparable" and "Misty Blue" ....AWESOME!!!!

I've always been a big fan of Miki's and I must say this release is some of her best work since she recorded Miki does Billie Holiday. I heard her sing "Inseperable" in person a few months ago, but to hear it on this release just blows me away and I can't stop listening to it!! Miki is and always have been one of the top singers in R & B and jazz; a true DIVA!! You Go, Gurl!!! and I will be seeing you at the Blue Ribbon.

I purchased this cd years ago and didn't appreciate it. Years later, I found it and popped it into my disc player and gave it three spins around. LOVED IT!!! Youth robbed me of the chance to love this as much as I do now, and she performed this! The sad part here is that there were only 10 tracks, but it's okay, cause it's Miki, and she did the thang! I loved her then and thanks to me finding this disc, I still love her and want to see a return to music. YA HEAR ME, MIKI???
