Keiko frequently changes the style of her music from jazz to pop and vice versa. This one´s of the jazzy pop style. I like her much more when she is pure jazz, because she is one of the few real great singers in that genre. But for lovers of demanding pop songs this disc is a perfect one. Ain`t No Sunshine, That`s Enough For Me, Superstition, Minute By Minute and Bridge Over Troubled Water are the highlights to me. I`m hoping for a pure jazz SACD next, although this one`s not so bad.
The sound is very good, rich of colour, very good soundstage and imaging, air for the instruments and the singer to breath, very dynamic, brilliant.
