On Slow Love, his second album for Verve/Forecast, Gino Vannelli retains some of the jazz influences that marked Yonder Tree, his debut for the label.

Overview

On Slow Love, his second album for Verve/Forecast, Gino Vannelli retains some of the jazz influences that marked Yonder Tree, his debut for the label. Nevertheless, the entire record is geared toward the adult contemporary audience -- the one that carried him through the '70s and '80s. With that in mind, it's hard to believe that the album was released on Verve, since not only does it not sound like jazz, it barely fits into the fusion category. Even so, Slow Love is a solid, well-produced adult contemporary album, even if it is quite predictable. In the past, Vannelli tended to over-sing, but here he displays a welcome gentleness. He may not be subtle, but he's getting closer. He sounds better and more relaxed than he has in years and that alone makes Slow Love a relative success.
