Those who know Dee Dee Bridgewater from her classy tributes to jazz luminaries like Horace Silver and Ella Fitzgerald should take note that the music on the reissue of this eponymous effort from 1980 is more firmly situated in the pop and R&B camps. From songs with a disco-influenced feel ("Lonely Disco Dancer") to smooth, lilting balladry ("When Love Comes Knocking at Your Door"), this set is light, groove-oriented, and easy on the ears. It may not be the best place to start with this too-often-overlooked singer, but it should be of interest to long-time fans.
