This album is one of the best if you like soulfull music from the late 80's. I will never forget the first time I heard "Piano In The Dark". I had just gotten measured for my tuxedo for my senior prom in early May of 1988. When I walked out of the "Mr. Tux" shop and got into my new car, I turned on the radio and heard this piano and synthesizers start up and it gave me a chill that went up my neck. After hearing this song I had to find out who sang it and went to a record store and bought the cassette single immediately. The video is just as great with Brenda singing her heart out in what looked like an old cafe with rain pouring down outside and in the background playing the piano in the dark was none other than Joe Esposito. I had lost all of my 80's music and pretty much had forgotten it throughout the 90's. But I am once again collecting music from the 80's and this song is at the top of my list. I suggest it for a romantic dinner or dancing. If it doesn't take you back to the late 80's then nothing will.

I still remember the first time I saw the video for "Piano In The Dark" on Night Tracks (remember that show?). I was blown away by the poignant vocals, the incredible lyrics, and the cool jazzy vibe that underpinned that amazing song. I still get chills every time I listen to "Piano In The Dark", even though it has been 13 years since this album came out!
While "Piano In The Dark" is far and away the best song on "Get Here", the rest of the album is engaging and soulful. The stirring ballad "Get Here" became an anthem during the Gulf War because of the sweet but not sappy lyrics and its melodic simplicity. "Le Restaurant" is an amazing jazz ballad with David Sanborn on saxophone. Lite jazz great Dave Koz also guests on "Just A Believer". Other noteworthy songs include the funky existential dance hit "Gravity", and a trio of up-tempo pop songs. If you like Basia, Oleta Adams, Sade, or Anita Baker, you should love this album.
"Get Here" does veer a bit over the musical map, covering jazz, pop, disco, and 80's rock, but it's a worthwhile trip. Brenda Russell writes very honest, emotional music that is engaging and exciting. If you enjoy this album, you should also check out her 2000 album "Paris Rain", where her lush jazz songs really flower into an amazing experience, or her 2001 ultimate collection, which includes many of her best works.

Brenda Russell, has a great soulful voice and this album has a jazz and R&B feel. everytime I listen to it, I love it. I have never gotten sick of it and I still have it on vinyl at home. The ballad "Piano In The Dark" is soulful and could picture listening to it anywhere. I recommend this album because you wont stop listening to it.

I bought this CD back in 2005. Originally released in 1988 at the time when "slow jams" were constantly played on the radio. "Piano in the Dark" is that song that stands out from the whole album. In addition to a beautiful video that references what is said in the song. Completely shot in black and white. Miss Russell deliver passionate and soulfoul emotions on every word of this beautiful song. The voice of Joe Esposito add an interesting contrast to Brenda's raspy voice.

There are other very good songs here that did not made it to the radio charts. Such as "Gravity", "Just a Believer"
and "Make my day." "Get here" is an excellent song, but I prefer Oleta Adams version better. Over all, this is a great CD to play on a quiet evening at home or a rainy day. Without any doubt, this is a timeless classis from almost 25 years ago.

This collection was a classic in it's own time. The whole disc is great, but the two songs, "Get Here" and "Piano in the Dark" in my view are the standouts.

Songlist:

01. Gravity - 3:30
02. Just a Believer - 3:57
03. Piano in the Dark - 5:20** (standout song!)
04. This Time I need You - 4:57
05. Make My Day - 4:26
06. Le Restaurant - 4:35
07. Midnight Eyes - 3:42
08. Get Here - 4:57** (standout song!)

Five stars!

Russell had lesser early hits, but it took the amazing "Piano In The Dark" to bring her the success she deserved. As executive producer, all the songs on this album have her distinct touch on them, and her talents as songwriter, performer, arranger, and producer shine here. From the odd but outstanding lead track "Gravity" to the closing track, her original masterpiece "Get Here" which far outshines the better-known Oleta Adams cover, influences of blues, pop, and rock showcase her versatility in various genres. An excellent addition to any collection, and one you'll find yourself singing long after the music has ended.

...I would agree this collection of songs hardly made Brenda Russell a household name but she did put out a great track from this record "Piano in the dark" and I did hear that song on the radio for several years after. She may not have the pipes of Whitney Houston but there are very few singers that can melt your heart with their voices and Brenda Russell given the right material and direction can.
