Sensual Embrace: The Soul Ballads collects 12 smooth jazz tracks from Pieces of a Dream's mid-'80s recordings for Blue Note Records. Among the selections are "The Cool Side," "You and I," "Goodbye Manhattan," "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?," and a cover version of Paul McCartney's "My Love." It's both a good introduction to Pieces of a Dream's laid-back sound and an excellent summation of the group's peak years. ~ Al Campbell
