If you remember when music videos were all the rage, Kangol was the brand to own, and girl power, R&B harmony groups ruled all charts, That's My Jam! is an aptly titled set, providing a perfect soundtrack for nostalgic house parties or grown folks picnics. TLC is as hip-hop as it gets and represented by their crossover hits "Red Light Special," plus the almighty "Creep," so the rest of the set goes for midtempo, R&B smoothness filled with straight sexiness (R. Kelly, Ginuwine, Adina Howard) or swooning passion (Toni Braxton, SWV, Jade). Going that extra mile, the compilers choose quality but forgotten names like Brownstone and Groove Theory, along with interesting choices from known names, like Aaliyah's "At Your Best (You Are the Love)."
