Probably more for sentimental reasons than anything else, this is my favorite recording of hers. Her sound definitely became more refined and more radio-friendly over the years, but this is the CD of hers that I always come back to. In the years after this release leading up to today, she has become identified as a "smooth jazz" artist, a genre that I'm not a fan of. But this recording is not smooth jazz at all...it's sort of experimental in a way. The "jazz meets Brazil meets 80s pop" sound only could have happened when she recorded this in 1988. The bare-bones production recorded on analog tape only adds to the sonic uniqueness, in the best possible way.
...and it does bring back memories of that smoke-filled little jazz club in Westwood all those years ago where I saw her playing her heart out. And she wasn't playing "smooth jazz"! Recommended CD.
