Greatest Love Songs compiles many of smooth vocalist Will Downing's best and most passionate songs, beginning with his self-titled album (1988) and reaching all the way to his later work with Motown, All the Man You Need (2000). It's a nicely balanced compilation, featuring a few songs from each of Downing's albums, including some of his R&B hits such as "Free," "I Try," and "I Go Crazy." Since most of Downing's albums can be quite spotty, it's convenient to have a distillation of his work such as this, even if it focuses mostly on his more seductive and gentle songs. As an added bonus, Downing includes brief observations on each of the songs in the liner notes. ~ Jason Birchmeier
Artist Overview
An often-underrated R&B/soul vocalist, Will Downing began his career in the 1980s appearing on various albums by hitmakers of the era, and finally hit an impressive streak of albums for the GRP label, starting in 2002 with SENSUAL JOURNEY. Anchored in a vintage 1970s sound that never feels forced, the Brooklyn-based singer uses his expressive, deep voice to relate intriguing tales of romance. Frequently aiding Downing is smooth-jazz saxophonist Gerald Albright, who has proven to be a perfect foil for the sensitive crooner.
