One voice towers above the rest… a scorching new chapter from the worlds greatest R&B male vocalist

DANCE WITH MY FATHER is the latest triumph for a singer who like a handful of superstars is immediately identifiable by first name alone. Say the name ‘Luther’ and record buyers the world over respond immediately. The five-time GRAMMY® winner, whose cumulative global sales top over 25 million copies, has been offering his distinctive brand of satin smooth vocal magic to international audiences year in and year out for over two decades.

It’s his fifteenth album in a star-studded career filled with accomplishment and achievement, DANCE WITH MY FATHER is the much-anticipated follow up to his 2001’s platinum-plus eponymous J Records debut. Self-produced, along with longtime associates Nat Adderley Jr. and Marcus Miller, 2003’s DANCE WITH MY FATHER finds international superstar Luther Vandross examining aspects of life, love and relationships "from different perspectives. If you listen to the groove music and the overall sound of the music, it’s like, ‘yes, this is the Luther we know’ but you might miss the subtlety and nuances in the songs. If you recited the lyrics that I wrote for this record, you could see that there’s something being said…"

DANCE WITH MY FATHER also features killer collaborations with Beyonce Knowles, Busta Rhymes, Queen Latifah and Foxy Brown.

Muze PNote Life can be cruel and nowhere is this more apparent than when Luther Vandross was felled by a stroke just prior to the release of DANCE WITH MY FATHER. For the most personal of his 15 albums, Vandross dipped into the worlds of R&B and hip-hop for help on a handful of songs. Checking in are Beyonce Knowles playing Donny Hathaway to Luther's Roberta Flack on a lush reading of "The Closer I Get to You" that finds the roles flipped and Busta Rhymes hopping aboard a thumping cover of Bill Withers' "Lovely Day" (that includes a Part II). Also helping out with the heavy lifting are Queen Latifah on the snappy "Hit It Again" with its crackling rhythms, and bad-girl Foxy Brown who brings plenty of attitude to the sassy "If It Ain't One Thing." For all the celebrity cameos, Vandross is most successful when he masterfully changes gears into his guise as pop's premiere balladeer. With his velvety croon, this New York City native reminisces about better times on the wistful "Once Were Lovers" (featuring a moving Stevie Wonder harmonica solo) and also delivers the heartfelt title track, a self-described career song dedicated to Vandross' late father.
