The remix of I'm the Baddest Bitch starts the album off with a lovely jazzy walking bass line and brings a new light onto this classic. As the tracks progress we find a more substantial deep house vibe, with tracks like Do You Wanna Party? and the underground classic Dreams ensuring you get the four-on-the-floor message. Yes I Am uses short cut up vocal samples to give it a little broken beat feel, so to Mystery uses the cut up vocal sample to give a little quirkiness to an outstanding deep house groove.
With the signature mumbling samples and other abstract sounds that Moodymann is renowned for, this album is brilliant. But the main reason for its brilliance is the beauty of Norma Jean Bell's voice - it has to be heard to be believed! Then there is her superb sax and keyboard skills not to mention the inspirational musicianship of the other musicians.
It's always good to hear a really intelligent and innovative house album out of Detroit, this is no exception.
