Come See About Me

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
When Freda Payne signed with the reactivated Volt label in 2000, many of the diehard soul lovers who knew her for "Band of Gold" and "Bring the Boys Home" were no doubt hoping for an album of Detroit soul and Holland/Dozier/Holland classics. But the veteran singer is more versatile than that. Before she became known for Motor City soul, Payne recorded jazz for ABC/Paramount, MGM, and Bob Thiele's Impulse! label home of heavyweights like John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. Payne is no more an R&B purist than Nancy Wilson one of her influences is a jazz purist. Recorded in 2000 and released in 2001, Come See About Me contains only a few examples of retro soul.

But the veteran singer is more versatile than that.

Payne is no more an R&B purist than Nancy Wilson one of her influences is a jazz purist. Recorded in 2000 and released in 2001, Come See About Me contains only a few examples of retro soul. "First Impression" and the title track a cover of Diana Ross & the Supremes' 1964 smash recall her soul output of the late '60s and early '70s, but the CD also offers everything from urban and quiet storm to adult contemporary. Payne who was 55 when this album was recorded even gets into dance-pop on the anthemic "I Live for New York City." None of the material is straight-ahead jazz, although "Let's Make Beautiful Music," "You Complete Me," and an arrangement of the standard "You Turned the Tables on Me" are the sort of mellow quiet storm offerings that one would expect from Anita Baker. Come See About Me isn't a masterpiece and isn't among Payne's essential albums, but it's a pleasant, enjoyable effort that should please her diehard fans.

    "Let's Make Beautiful Music" should have been the title track!

    Any fan of Freda Payne will enjoy this CD of beautiful music. "Let's Make Beautiful Music" should definitely have been the title track (in my opinion, it's better than the song "Come See About Me" which is just as good as the Supremes' version), because it's a better song; and I think it represents the kind of music of this album. All of the other songs very wonderful, beautiful, and enjoyable to listen to. My particular favorites are...well, all of them! Freda gave all of us a real treat when she made this album. I remember I read that she started her career in New York, but now she lives in California (her living in California makes me find it ironic for her to sing a song about New York!). Anyway, Freda Payne gave us a definite treasure with this album. Let's hope she'll make another brand-new album sometime very soon!
