Queen Latifah has talent - but it has yet to be developed. She has cool styling on the Cole Porter and "light" jazz tunes but her gospel renditions (especially "Have Mercy On Me") demonstrate her lack of maturity and passion. She says in the intro "never let 'em see you sweat" - well, I disagree. That's the problem - she doesn't sweat - which makes her perfect for the Cole Porter songs. The arrangement for "California Dreaming" is laughable by not appreciating the darkness. Queen should stick to light and airy Brazil 66 stylings until she is able to reach into the depths of her soul to give proper renditions of passionate songs. Better luck next time!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
