Overview

Slow may be the best example of singer Ann Hampton Calloway’s versatility as an artist. Calloway’s voice is a stunning instrument that can caress a ballad: the evergreens “You Belong to Me” and “Never Let Me Go”; the Carole King–Gerry Goffin pop standard “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”; bossa boss Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Someone to Light Up My Life"; and Calloway’s own outstanding originals -- “I’ve Dreamed of You,” the jazzy “Lullaby in Blue,” and the seductive, Bacharach-esque “Slow.” Yet Calloway can also enter contemporary smooth-jazz territory with style. “Tonight, You’re All Mine” (a Calloway–Carole King collaboration) and Calloway’s “My Answered Prayer” sound like hits Anita Baker missed out on, while a duet with sister Liz on Van Morrison’s “Moondance” confirms the song’s secure place as a modern standard. Throughout, Calloway sounds outstanding, her pipes in prime shape and her attentiveness to lyrics never more in evidence. A triumph.
