JOYOUS!!! A Must Have!!!

It feels like Arif Mardin freed his musical soul on this album. It is his swan song, but comes off more like the finale of a fireworks display!

The songs range from quirky (Dual Blues) to lush and seductive (So Blue). The production is exquisite (as you would expect!) Some tracks are dressed in lush arrangements, some are more sparse, featuring rich piano and soulful upright bass. The one thing that touches me most about this album? For all its jazzy sophistication, it is so emotionally intimate-ending with the final track, "Wistful", where we are serenaded by Arif himself sweetly playing the piano. The divas and luminaries that Arif produced throughout his career are all here! Chaka Kahn, Bette Midler, Carly Simon, Norah Jones--and they are brilliant. Play this album through just once and you will feel like a friend too!! Love it!!


Bette's voice shines and is in great form on the original song "The greatest ears in town." Comical it!
