Sade - Love Deluxe
This came out when I was probably 19, 20. I've always loved it, it was a big inspiration on me. It's sort of classy, another cocktail and cityscape record. Her voice is equally soothing as the music, and it's rare that you have a singer with that sort of voice sits so well over the music. I've recently been really into saxophones, and I thinks that's why I'm drawn to the Bohren record as well, and there's an instrumental on this album that's so pretty and carried by the saxophone. The saxophone is almost like a voice to me, it sounds as if somebody is saying something through the instrument.
