Anita Baker: Compositions (1990)

anita baker compositions

By Scott Goldfine

Peerless songstress Anita Baker weaves her enchanting brand of R&B-jazz on her fourth solo album, “Compositions.” Although melancholy in sound and tempo, Baker’s songs express themes of love and devotion.

She croons, scats and does everything in between with such flair that she allows the listener to forgive the absence of more adventurous accompaniment.
