In 1978 Angela Bofill became the second artist signed to the GRP label. She was hailed as a jazz prodigy and had consistent success on the R&B charts. While Bofill never achieved major pop-crossover success, her late-'90s releases have an instantly likable smooth-jazz appeal.
This excellent collection presents the best of her material. The singer's beautiful soprano works best on jazzy ballads, but also soars on the dance numbers. One such track is "Something About You," an upbeat workout produced by Narada Michael Walden, the famed R&B and dance maestro. "Baby, I Need Your Love," from Angela's debut, is a mid-tempo, Caribbean-flavored tune with a wonderful flute solo. "Under the Moon and Over the Sky" is a reserved, jazzy number showing the range and beauty of her voice. "I'm on Your Side" is a soulful ballad with excellent arrangements. Angela successfully duets with Boz Scaggs on a groovin' version of "Ain't Nothin' Like the Real Thing." Too Tough" is a supercharged, post-disco jam. "I Try" shows how a ballad should be sung: strong and heartfelt, but never overdone.
