When Chaka Khan left Rufus in 1978 she became a huge solo success, while her former band floundered with the Chaka-less Numbers. Thankfully, everything was righted when she and Rufus reunited for Masterjam in late 1979. Clearly, the time away helped the group refocus their energy. The accomplishment is due in large part to producer Quincy Jones, whose simultaneous work with Michael Jackson and the Brothers Johnson made him the perfect candidate to mold the Rufus sound. Jones brought with him songwriter-arranger Rod Temperton, whose “Live in Me” and “Masterjam” set the tone. The album resounds with snappy, punchy grooves, beginning with the one-two punch of “Do You Love What You Feel” and “Any Love.” The music is rooted in the disco era, but with its slick grooves and candy hooks, the songs point towards the sound of early-'80s R&B. As always, Chaka steals the show, and her irrepressible but highly toned voice is the focal point of every track. “Heaven Bound” and “What Am I Missing?” are reminders that the band’s lusty mix of jazz, funk and pop has eternal appeal.
Rufus and Chaka Masterjam
Maybe it's the influence of the Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton duo, that was so successful for "Michel Jackson" and "The Brother Johnson" in their hey day. What they did for Chaka and that group "Rufus" was just great. Without a doubt, this will always be my favorite "Rufus and Chaka" album. Well, judge for yourself, let's start out with "do you like what you feel", "any love", "bodyheat" and "masterjam, great songs, great album, Rufus at there best. On second thought "ask rufus'" wasn't too bad, I know, I know, that was a great album too(smile). And no matter what anyone tells you, there's a big difference between the group "Rufus featuring Chaka Kahn" and "Chaka Kahn" (once she left the group). So take advantage of one of their best, "Masterjam", enjoy.
Chaka and Rufus are the best
Just one of the best CD Chaka and Rufus have done together. Get Masterjams
What Chaka Khan is all about
I remember walking way across town and taking a bus to the nearest record store to by this when it came out. Hearing it again brings me back to 1979 when life was more simple and music really had substance. My favorite tracks are "Live In Me", and "I'm Dancing For Your Love" however, the entire album is fantastic.
