Album of the Day
Jade To The Max
Having grown up on jazz, Motown and gospel, vocalists Tonya Kelly, Joi Marshall and Di Reed – known collectively as Jade - could make just about anything sound good. On JADE TO THE MAX, the R&B trio’s 1992 debut album for Giant, the ladies also have top-notch production and material to work with. Hitmaker/mentor Vassal Benford penned nearly half of the 11 songs here with co-producer Ron Spearman, including three Top 40 singles: "I Wanna Love You," "One Woman" and the supremely catchy “Don’t Walk Away.” If new jack swing is your thing, the platinum-selling JADE TO THE MAX remains among the gems of the era.
