While Paul Hardcastle continues to perform with a new album over 20 years later, I still remember December 1984, when his hit Rainforest, was played a lot on R&B stations. It balanced so very well with the R&B records and the rap hits that were starting to dominate mainstream radio. It has a smooth jazz groove with cool, dance beats and keyboards playing on it. I still hear it it many places today, stores and the like. December of '84 through '85, I heard it a lot, then "19" exploded with its funky grooves. Went very high on pop charts, then he later returned to his jazz mode. Hardcastle continues to surprise us with his adventurous jazz and this collection is a good start for anyone that hadn't heard his earlier music.
