Personnel: Kem (vocals, keyboards); David McMurray (tenor saxophone); Edward Gooch (trumpet); Fred "Rodriguez" Robinson (bass guitar); Andre "Zapp" Driscoll (drums); Marlon "Wild Bill" Curry (percussion). Recording information: Masterpiece Sound, Detroit, MI; Willray Productions, Detroit, MI. Arranger: Kem. Like a male Sade, or vintage Steely Dan without the irony, smooth R&B vocalist Kem weaves mellow, late-night musical tapestries over '70s-style jazz grooves. In the process, he manages to sound completely contemporary without so much as a single hip-hop beat or squiggly synth line. Kem's voice is an instrument of subtle grace and power, his vocal timbre and clipped phrasing owing an immediately obvious debt to Sam Cooke, but, interestingly, also occasionally recalling Dave Matthews. Best of all, however, is the Motown vocalist's sense of restraint. The maturity of his delivery belies his youth and puts many established vocalists to shame. Combining the best elements of Luther Vandross, Lou Rawls, and Seal, Kem delivers a slab of jazz-inflected rhythm & blues that proves it's still possible to serve up a maximum amount of soul with a minimum of fuss. Vibe (4/03, p.176) - 3.5 discs out of 5 - "...This is old-fashioned midnight-love music. And Lord knows we could all use some..."
