If you like classic soul you'll love this album. Real instruments, real melody and great vocals. Sounding like it could have been recorded in the 60's or 70's, but still managing to feel at home in 2007. There are many influences here, including a big Bacharach/Warwicke feel on a number of tracks. Vocally Ebony has a deep, sultry tone somewhat reminiscent of Sade, however any comparisons are probably unfair as this lady is a star in her own right.
As a fan of soul music for nearly 40 years this album has rocketed into my all time list of top albums, I would recommend to anybody who loves classic soul.
