AllMusic Review by

A decidedly pleasant-natured surprise that features the sweet-voiced Lavender on a series of well-done originals and one slightly odd (in arrangement) cover (Arlen/Harburg's "If I Only Had a Brain"). Lavender and key partner Kamau Kenyatta do a good job of mixing elements of light jazz and soul, making for an album of ballads that doesn't fall prey to sappy moments and saccharine overlay -- soft without being vague.
