"This is what we mean when we call someone "singer/songwriter". Classic soul album often overlooked."

"Pop/jazz perfection. Every track a masterpiece. Session players are tested and dropped. But it's Bernard Purdie's drumming and Chuck Rainey's bass that stand out. Oh yes, and Michael McDonald on Peg."

"The best jazz/soul vocalist of the past 20 years. End of story. Shame about the follow up. I tell them to avoid George Duke but they don't listen."

"Worth it just for Tryin' times, but a perfect debut."

"I could name all the Tropicalia stars, but you can't beat Ivan Lins for melodies. If Quadras de Roda doesn't make your heart sing then see a doctor."

"The other great crooner. This was originally called It's A Blue World. Pure velvet. Don't even mention Sinatra to me."

"Then there's Mr Hartman. With Coltrane? What's not to like?"

"By my admission (and Marvin Gaye's) you really only need listen to the Ashford & Simpson ones. Even better version of California Soul than Marlena Shaw."

"The debut solo album. A lot riding on it and she brings in my friends, Ashford & Simpson and they deliver."

"Ok, ok, just one more Ashford & Simpson reference: I'm every woman. Played to death but remains a classic. Check out 'Love has fallen on me'."

"Until Everyhome Should Have One is released on CD this will have to do. I prefer her Quincy Jones material."

"Speaking of Quincy, one of the few Grammy winners that deserved to win. It's a classic pop/soul album and I love every track, especially ones writen by Rod Temperton."
