Editorial Reviews

In a career filled with multi-platinum albums, Top 10 hits, multiple Grammys and unforgettable artistry, Natalie Cole adds another pearl with Snowfall On The Sahara, a beautiful album rich with the elegance and style that made Natalie a multi-platinum superstar. The arrangements on Snowfall On The Sahara go from contemporary Pop to soulful R&B with Natalie's rich voice carrying the songs to thrilling heights. Standout tracks are the swooning Leon Russell cover "A Song For You," Say You Love Me," and the delicate and melodious "Snowfall On The Sahara."

5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie's back and she's got a wonderful new album! July 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Natalie Cole and Diana Ross issue is old; they are two great entertainers who should both be given a whole lot of respect! I have been a Natalie Cole fan for years. She never ceases to amaze me. Natalie's new album, Snowfall On The Sahara, is full of emotion. She uses her voice like a beautiful instrument. I really like the variety of songs that Natalie chose for this album. I especially love the way she sings A Song For You, Snowfall On The Sahara, Reverend Lee, Corinna, Say You Love Me and Gotta Serve Somebody. I highly recommend Snowfall On The Sahara; the album is slammin' and yet it's smooth! You'll be touched by the message Ms. Cole is delivering in song. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie's "Snowfall" inspires artistic windfall November 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Natalie Cole's 1991 project of her father's material, "Unforgettable," was indeed a touching and artistically sound tribute. Then 1993's "Take a Look" proved its predecessor was no fluke and flaunted jazz chops all her own. But by 1996 the nostalgia kick had worn thin; more swing, more strings, and another technology-provided duet with dear old Dad made "Stardust" seem far too familiar. The time was definitely right for Natalie to return to (mostly) pop music, and "Snowfall on the Sahara" ranks as her true crowning moment of artistic glory. Nothing on "Snowfall" feels particularly retro, but the album offers all the elements of a classic record from a 70's singer: impeccable taste in songs, strong arrangements, and a top-notch voice in top form singing the hell out of the material.
The title track is one of the smoothest blends of pop and soul radio has been treated to in recent years, and "Say You Love Me" (from "Dreamgirls") ranks as one of Natalie's most seductive ballads ever...intricate production and a unique, sampled exhale make the track just as innovative as it is commercially appealing. Cole also displays some delightfully unexpected musical tastes as she covers Bob Dylan (with a rousing "Gotta Serve Somebody"), Judy Collins (on a stately "Since You Asked") and Taj Mahal (which appropriately kicks off with Natalie saying "Just when you think you know me...think again!" before offering drum samples and bluesy guitar licks).

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch - Listening to an Angel April 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
What words can express the lingering sweetness, soothing feeling, and easygoing touch that Natalie Cole's "Snowfall on the Sahara" leaves you with...each time your ears are treated with the smoothness of her lasting and melodic voice. 'Say You Love Me' and 'Snowfall on the Sahara' moves one to tears, yet brings a smile across your face because somewhere in your psyche and in your soul, you have been led 'there....somewhere personal' with Natalie as your guide. This is truly a beautiful collection of sounds that one must not miss listening to..and while doing so, one truly will enjoy the journey...over and over again!

5.0 out of 5 stars HER BEST CD EVER!!!! October 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Natalie Cole is one of the greatest singers of all times and this is her best cd ever. Her voice is perfect and all the songs were very well chosen. It's the kinnd of cd you just can't stop listening to. Over and over and never get tired of it. And the title song is one of the most beautiful songs of the last few years. The only problem with the cd is that it doesn't have more songs. It's impossible to go thru all the tracks reaching the last one and not wishing you still had some more or even another cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise to Natalie Cole for Snowfall on The Sahara June 29, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Praise goes to Natalie Cole for her new soulful/jazzy/and orchestrated songs found on Snowfall on The Sahara! This great album is blended with upbeat, romantic, and sweeping rich music that truly makes it a special and different gem. I admitt this was the first Natalie Cole album I have purchased, and I am glad I did! The music sizzles with feelings from a dim jazz club of yesterday to colorful moods and beats of todays music. Well crafted and written material. I think the title track is my favorite, almost sounds like it could be used for a movie soundtrack single. But each song has a different emotion and sound to it. Her voice goes from many different ranges, including soft like romantic lullabies and kicken upbeat blues. Spectacular work Natalie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie never ceases to amaze me June 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Once again Natalie Cole has left me speechless. From Inseparable to Snowfall on the Sahara, Natalie has been innovative, and creative all the things that a true artist is. With Snowfall, she weaves her artistry from her decades of experience into one thoroughly enjoyable album. Full of lush ballads, "Say You Love Me," "More Than You'll Ever Know," "His Eyes, Her Eyes," Natalie Cole shines. The material never overpowering or overwhelming Natalie plunges in and pulls out the performances. This one will win her more Grammy's. From "A Song For You," to "Stay With Me," Natalie delivers. ENJOY!

5.0 out of 5 stars since you asked. July 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
it has been way too long since natalie has put out an album of original work. though her efforts to keep the flame of traditional jazz burning brightly are laudable, it's wonderful to see her prove, on _snowfall on the sahara_, that the musical and lyrical quality of early jazz can be translated into today's r&b/vocal tradition seamlessly. while all of the songs on _snowfall_ are well-conceived, "a song for you", "snowfall on the sahara", "more than you'll ever know", "say you love me", "his eyes, her eyes" and "since you asked" stand out as emotional stories that will play your heartstrings with the skill and precision of the most accomplished violinist. _snowfall_ reasserts cole as one of our generation's most accomplished and talented vocalists, without a doubt.
