Anita Baker: Rhythm of Love (1994)

anita baker rhythm of love

By Scott Goldfine

One of contemporary music’s most beautiful instruments, the unmistakable smooth-as-glass voice of Anita Baker, has returned after a four-year concession to motherhood. “Rhythm of Love,” the songstress’ fifth solo effort, is a mixture of oldies (“My Funny Valentine”) and new Baker compositions such as the jazzy “I Apologize.”

While the material is spotty, Baker’s delivery remains impeccable.
