Creative Genius at Work in the Real Thing,
This review is from: Real Thing (Audio CD)
I listened to this CD several times before I turned to Amazon.com to see what the reviews had to say about Vanessa's latest singing venture and was pleasantly surprised to see that the vast majority of the listeners felt as I did. This is a splendid album combing both jazz and salsa with a lot of romance mixed in. It is not a "pop" album like the latest Lionel Ritchie offering, which was terribly disappointing since he is such a fine singer. However, Vanessa does not disappoint in this CD. I have purchased and listened to everyone of her albums and she just gets better with age. Vanessa's vocal range continues to improve and her selection of songs are just outstanding. This is the type of music you want to listen to on a lazy afternoon as one of the songs suggests. It is music that truly sooths the savage soul within us. While there is no doubt she is one of the most beautiful women in the universe, a great actress, and an outstanding dancer, she completes her being with wonderful singing. She truly is one of our treasures and this album only confirms these observations. Don't wait any longer - go buy it and treat yourself - I promise that you won't be sorry you did.
