Format: Audio CD
was so pleasantly surprised to hear Regina Belle re-doing and refining some of well known standards and Broadway tunes.

The instrumentation and vocals are just splendid, and she always commands the best session men.

George Duke, Everette Harp,Christian McBride, Ray Fuller, Lenny Castro,the Perris and many other top-notch jazz musicians...all totally support Regina's unbelievable voice and styling on every cut.

Not a weak one in the bunch.

You touch me,you dazzle me,Regina,you have stolen my heart.

And " Why Do People Fall In Love" just has to be on anyone's list for best written, performed, and produced cuts.

Just sit-back and enjoy this astonishing , high-quality CD. You'll be glad that you did!

When I discovered this CD (surprisingly, it was not promoted at all on TV, radio, in musical magazines or internet sites, NOTHING - just 'word of mouth') I approached it gingerly, in exactly the same way as I did with Carly Simon's "Moonlight Serenade" album and with Rod Stewart's unfamous offerings. "Oh God!" I thought, "here we go again, this'll be a washout - same old stuff rehashed". But I was WRONG!
This is no meandering MOR (Middle of the Road) set as I had feared, but a CLASSIC and ESSENTIAL album of interpretations that will be loved, played and cherished by lovers of soul, jazz, standards and almost anyone with a tasteful bone in their body for generations to come.
These are much loved songs written by great composers like the Gershwins, the Isley Brothers, John Latouche/Jerome Moross, Bart Howard.. These songs have been recorded by classic quality artists such as Frank Sinatra,Tony Bennett,Tom Jones, Dionne Warwick, Peggy Lee, Nina Simone, Bobby Daring, Sarah Vaughan and Barbra Streisand, among others.
Along comes Regina Belle, who takes these famous songs and remoulds them into an intoxicating blend of quality music, backed up by full orchestration. Regina gives us a performance of a LIFETIME.
Here, in my opinion, we are in a higher plane, in a far superior league with Regina in an emotional, wistful, teasing and creative mood. This is in marked contrast to the crass, commercial and unsophisticated acts which rule the charts nowadays....
I clicked on the sound samples on Amazon and headed for the tracks that I was unfamiliar with. Let's just say that 10 seconds into the title track and tears had welled up and caught a lump in my throat.

Through the years Regina Belle has been continuing to perfect her songcraft.
She first burst onto the scene with 'So many tears' in 1987 and 'Make it like it was' and earned a Grammy for her 1993 duet with Peabo Bryson,'A whole new world ', from the Disney film 'Alladin'.
This new album,recorded in Los Angeles with veteran producer and legendary pianist/keyboardist George Duke,is a thrilling,soul satisfying collection of beloved rhythmm and blues staples,swinging jazz standards,moody torch songs and golden classics : all delivered in Regina's sultry,precise phrasing with memorable,contemporary arrangements.
I love it !
You'll love it !

This record is as good as could be hoped for.
Regina Belle is in sparkling form,the songs are gorgeous,the production is flawless,the concept is original,diverse and adventurous.
It is maybe the most complex and difficult CD ( in the making ) of her whole recording career...but certainly it is the most rewarding. It is simply a marvel !
Funk,Gospel,Jazz and Soul at their best.
I think ( and in that I am supported by terrific reviews from both sides of the Atlantic ) that it is one of the best records of 2004.
Buy it now !

Regina Belle's new CD is among the best in the talented songstress' recording career. Regina emerged in the late 80s in the wake of Anita Baker as one of the new school of brilliant female soul vocalists and has continued to release albums regularly ever since. Her last couple of CDs, however, have been somewhat uninspired particularly with regard to their arrangements. On this jazz-flavoured set she has fortunately opted for a more acoustic approach. Producer George Duke has assembled an all-star cast of musicians including Everette Harp, Ray Fuller, Christian McBride, Oscar Brashear, Lenny Castro, Dean Parks and the Perry Sisters (Lori, Sharon & Darlene).
On her 1995 album Reachin' Back Regina already interpreted soul classics, and here again she delves into the songbook of yesteryear. This time around, she has decided to cover old Broadway / jazz standards with a couple of soul favourites thrown in. However, you should not be alarmed by the word Broadway, or the fact that she has chosen tunes from Tony Bennett's (a favourite of Regina's) repertoire, since under George Duke's production she definitely makes the tunes into something every soul fan should pay heed to.
A case in point is the opening title track. The Broadway tune is transformed into a lingering, fascinating soul ballad, on which Regina's voice sounds more magnificent than ever. The same can be said of the jazzy soul ballad exercise Fly Me to the Moon and the swinging What Are You Afraid Of, which have quality written all over them.
The Man I Love is the jazziest ballad reading of the set, an impeccable vocal performance caressed by George Duke's piano and Oscar Brashear's trumpet.
