James Ingram first rose to prominence back in 1981 when he sang lead vocals on Quincy Jones's Grammy Nominated ballad 'Just Once' from Jones' album 'The Dude'. The song was not a single in the U.K but made the U.S top twenty in both the pop and R&B charts. From that moment on, though he recorded a fair amount of uptempo dancefloor material throughout his career, James Ingram became known as the man with the big, emotive voice, the man for the 'big ballad'. A lot of film soundtrack work soon came James's way and this album collates a number of those songs in amongst various solo album tracks. 'How Do You Keep The Music Playing' (from 'Best Friends' and 'Baby, Come To Me' (from 'General Hospital') are two such duet's and feature another QJ regular vocalist Patti Austin. Also particularly good are 'One Hundred Ways' (again from 'The Dude') opener 'Where Did My Heart Go?' and closer 'Whatever We Imagine'. The only uptempo song here is another duet 'Yah Mo Be There' (this time with Michael McDonald) which was a big U.K hit in 1983 and has a religious lyric, otherwise it's ballads all the way. Summing up then, don't expect anything ground breaking or experiamental here but If you like, slick, perfectly produced, commercial soul you really can't go wrong with this.
