Jazz Moods: Hot
Released: Apr 2005
While CTI specialized in putting out sleek jazz packages that borrowed production ideas from rock 'n' roll concept albums, Esther Phillips' gritty approach stopped her work for the label from being slick. This CD compiles Phillips' best CTI moments, including "I Can Stand a Little Rain," "A Whisper to a Scream," and her pained, autobiographical interpretation of Gil Scott-Heron's "Home is Where the Hatred Is."
