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.

    Awesome

    Will Downing is the best voice that unfortnately many voices don't hear on radio. His mixture of contemporary jazz/smooth rb sound is awesome. These songs showcase the talents and vocal abilibities that , in my opinion, very few present-day artists have. In this day off add-water, sound-the-same vocalists, it is very refreshing to hear real talent and Will Downing is all of that. Thanks, Will!!!
