EDITORS’ NOTES

The bassist’s second album is where she started to show off her vocal skills in earnest, singing songs in three languages. Spanning breezy R&B grooves (“I Know You Know”) and harder-swinging sounds (“She Got to You”), Spalding’s original compositions also signaled the presence of a major talent. She was still years away from her first GRAMMY®, but Spalding’s style, as well as her sophisticated interaction with improvisers like pianist Leo Genovese and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, was already world-class.

Amazing Album

I have now owned this album for about a year and it is one of my most listened. The quality of the musicianship is superb and the composition is origianal but not unnatrual. I highly recommend anybody buy the album.
