Chaka Khan: C.K. (1988)

chaka c.k.By Scott Goldfine

Fiery soul singer Chaka Khan enlists the talents of Stevie Wonder, Prince, George Benson and Bobby McFerrin among others on her ambitious new release, “C.K.” The tunes range from subdued jazzy concoctions to the raucous funk of Prince’s “Sticky Wicked,” which features Miles Davis’ horn work.

The record’s broad scope is admirable, but Khan’s golden pipes have tarnished some over the years.
