Anita Baker: Giving You the Best That I Got (1988)

anita baker giving you the best

By Scott Goldfine

Anita Baker’s smooth-as-glass vocalizations are showcased on her latest offering, “Giving You the Best That I Got.” This follow-up to Baker’s 1986 multiplatinum, award-winning “Rapture” album is a mellow blend of R&B, jazz and pop.

The compositions aren’t that special ― but Baker’s inspirational renderings lift even the most trivial and blasé material to lofty heights.
