Brenda Russell's angelic voice is so engaging and pleasing that she could sing the ingredients in a Bon Appetit recipe and still get off a good take. Her voice is perfect for contemporary pop, not too light or too heavy, and while appreciated by her peers, she's far from being a household name despite a strong cult legacy. Greatest Hits summarizes Russell's best, featuring only ten songs, while showcasing her other skills: producing, musicianship, arranging, and drum programming. The best of the greatest include "Piano in the Dark," a slightly funky "Dinner with Gershwin," and romantic flights "If Only for One Night," and "Le Restaurant." ~ Andrew Hamilton
