Not yet rated | write a review
WARM YOUR HEART, Aaron Neville's 1991 A&M debut, finds the New Orleans crooner bringing his sweet, soulful voice to a collection of pop songs couched in lush production. The opener, a cover of Randy Newman's "Louisiana 1927," sets the stage for the star-studded proceedings to follow, with its arrangement by Van Dyke Parks and vocal help from Rita Coolidge and Linda Ronstadt (who also contributes production and arrangements throughout the album). Elsewhere Neville tackles tunes by John Hiatt, Burt Bacharach, Allen Toussaint, Jimmy Buffett, and even a stirring version of "Ave Maria."
Though the choice of material and sleek, polished studio treatments are clear attempts to push Neville toward commercial viability, the R&B lion retains all of his charm in this setting. His angelic tenor, which swoops and flutters like a bird, from delicate falsetto to full-throated passion, is in top form on the lovely ballad "With You in Mind" and Neville's own work-song-based "Angola Bound." WARM YOUR HEART succeeds on two levels--it has enough smooth sheen to satisfy fans of adult-contemporary R&B, and enough of Neville's undeniable talent, grace, and showmanship to please his old-school devotees.
