Muze PNote THE BEST OF ANITA BAKER contains all the single hits from the doyenne of Quiet Storm, plus a plethora of album cuts and nuggets that will make investigation of this summation of Anita Baker's career thus far a pleasure for neophytes and longtime fans alike. From her first big hit, the percolating "Sweet Love," through the smoky "Caught Up in the Rapture," and the sultry "Giving You the Best That I Got," this female answer to Michael McDonald draws the listener in with a combination of irresistible pop hooks (check out that little extra trill at the end of "Rapture"'s chorus) and come-hither arrangements. Operators of heavy machinery and long-distance truck drivers beware--the dreaminess hardly lets up over the length of this set (you'll find the name Anita Baker in the dictionary under "unwind") so you may want to lay your burden down before Baker's seductive voice causes any horrible accidents.

Artist Overview

Baker, who has been hailed as "the female Luther Vandross," used her gospel and jazz influences to bring a grown-up sophistication and sensuality to soul ballads. Her 1986 smash, RAPTURE, propelled her to stardom with a string of hit singles that blended slick production, R&B roots, and heartfelt emotion.
