Product Description:

Personnel includes: Anita Baker (vocals); Greg Phillingaines (keyboards); Paulinho Da Costa (percussion).
From the opening piano chords of 'Sweet Love', you know there is a good song coming. Ex-Chapter 8 vocalist Baker has an effortless delivery that swoops and dips like a swallow. 'Sweet Love' is just one of those soul songs that people who say they don't like soul music like. The choice of material is superb, and heart-tugging songs such as David Lasley's 'You Bring Me Joy' or Ken Hirsch and Marti Sharron's 'No One In The World' are only beaten by Baker's voice. The slower material is stronger and only 'Watch Your Step' and 'Same Ole Love' fail to hit the spot, simply because of the mood the other tracks set.

Anita Baker---RAPTURE Music Lover: from Jacksonville,AR. -- September, 8, 2009

Just listen to these songs.Oh yes! You'll be "Caught Up" and sort of taken out of this world into a musical atmosphere.A setting that each song in it's own way gives.
