Two Dionne Warwick albums are included on this collection, both of them thematic and both from the early '90s. The first is Warwick's 1990 salute to Cole Porter
, arranged and produced by Arif Mardin
, the second a 1994 Brazilian-flavored album produced by Teo Lima
and including contributions from luminaries Dori Caymmi
and Chico Buarque
. Although long past Warwick's classic period with Sceptre, and even past her adult contemporary peak in the '80s, she proves her singing smarts with vastly different material here.
