Stephen and Linda Tavani have got a lot going for them, a slick production from R&B veteran Bill Schnee, a bevy of top and tasty accompanists (Michael Omartian, Bill Maxwell, Sly Stones sister Rose, Dann Huff) and all the right image which screams urban relevancy. And Linda Tavani is a pretty hot soul singer. All that's lacking are truly memorable songs. The ballads are dull despite all the production trickery and Linda's fiery scatting while the groove-orientated tracks aren't mixed heavy enough to appeal to clubland. Maybe this slick and competent CD just hit me on a bad day. But I suspect it's not going to be a US biggie.
